About our home

We have a nice big property by the lake Mälaren. Only 40 minutes drive from the capital of Sweden, Stockholm, 20 minutes från Uppsala. We have a own sand beach, Sauna (Little but cosy), big areas for the kids to play, Privacy, only one neighbour and he is nice. The sun shines to our beach whole the day and you can enjoy the sunset at 10 pm.

The house is actually 2 houses that are built together. Old house is from year 1650 and the newer is from 1978. We have renovated it inside, no pets and no smoking inside. Nice standard otherwise but we have not had time to renovate the kitchen/bath. They are from 1978 but working well.

Big windows towards the lake. Lake is called Mälaren, it is a big (not salt water) lake and OK temperature for swimming (20-23 degrees celcius at best). You can get a little boat with a small motor and canoe if you want. Nice castle from 1620 (Skokloster slott) just 10 minutes boat ride fromour place. You can also take the boat to central Uppsala (about 1 hour).

We have 3 bedrooms and one more if somebody will sleep at the old house. Total 7-8 beds.
