Sotheby's International Realty - Leksand, W

This delightful lakefront property has an area of 1195 m2 with big, beautiful birch trees, a flagpole, a private lake shore strip and jetty, a well-constructed wooden house, a guest house, a traditional “härbre” cottage and a garage, and is located only 15 km southwest of Leksand, on Lake Djursjön in Skålhol, one of the typical villages in the Skeberg area, dating back to the 16th century. This lovely red-coloured wooden split-level house with white-painted corners, is located right on the lake shore. It has a living area of 85 m2 and auxiliary area of 50 m2, as well as a panoramic terrace and a view of the lake. The living room, which is open up to the roof ridge, gives you the feeling of being in a much larger house. The interior features are made of wood, in light Scandinavian style. The transom and mullioned windows, wall and ceiling panels, pine floors and stairway combine to create a home with a soft and warm sense of harmony that goes perfectly with the fantastic flow of natural light and the intelligent layout. The attractive entrance area has a lavatory and room to hang outdoor clothing. The foyer opens on the kitchen and living room with its beautiful pine floor, ceiling and wall panels and a centrally located fireplace and heating stove that not only provides heat, but also creates abundant cosiness. There is a wonderful lake view throughout the house, as well as direct access to the wooden terrace that extends along the entire facade, both facing the lake and around the corner up to the main entrance, as well as the separate entrance to a little storage area. The living room has access to two bedrooms, as well as a bathroom with a washing machine, shower and sauna. There is a stylish pine stairway here that leads up to a charming loft with a little family room and two useful attic storage areas. The cellar level has a separate entrance directly from the garden, and mainly houses the distribution box, a pressure vessel (84-metre deep well) and other equipment.
