Villa Skovstuen was built as a summer home in 1872, and is located in the middle of the Oslofjord, Malmøya. The house has very simple lines, except for the glass veranda, which is neo gothical inspired.
I'm going to give you a tour of this amazing property, enjoy the photos below :)
Villa Skovstuen på Malmøya ble bygd som sommerhus i 1872, og ligger midt i Oslofjorden, på Malmøya. Huset har veldig enkle linjer, bortsett fra den praktfulle glassverandaen som er nygotisk i stilen.
Nedenfor får du en omvisning i huset, kos deg, det er virkelig fantastisk!
The very recognizable glass veranda. Stunning! I love the intricat pattern used in the detailing.
From the back garden it looks like every other "sveitservilla"
A little spot to relax and read a good book. A glass of wine, anyone?

This - is the kitchen. Utterly amazing! Look at the flooring, and all the windows make you feel like you're almost outside. The shape of the windows is also divine.
The kitchen area is quite large. This is another view.
And another view... The furniture is quite simple, which I think compliments the architecture. I'm so glad those windows aren't covered up!
A small breakfast corner where you can enjoy the view of the garden...
There's also a piano in the kitchen area, and you get a sneak peak to the library.
Which is also amazing. The furniture are borderline boring, but this room has HUGE potential.
I just love the ceiling. Would totally decorate this room differently, but the features of the room are just stunning.
And if you're by now thinking, "I totally want to live there!!", you most definitely can! It's for SALE! View the complete listing here. (the price is slightly offputting, USD 2,000,000.00)
Hvis du nå tenker, "her vil jeg bo!!!", så kan du det! Det er til SALGS!!! For å sjekke finn-annonsen, klikk her. (Prisen er nok til å sette peppermynte-teen i halsen igjen, kr 13,900,00.00... Men det er lov til å drømme?)
