If your dream has always been to live in an idyllic red cottage in Sweden, then you will love this charming red Swedish farm with all its coziness and hygge.

Located less than two hours from Stockholm and surrounded by nature, the area consists of several larger and smaller houses and buildings, two of which are residential houses, surrounded by a lush farm with lots of flowers, fruit trees and berry bushes and a large barn – and its for sale through Historiska Hem.

During their time here, the current owners have put a lot of work into restoring the residential buildings while saving the surrounding buildings from decay and truly bringing them to life. Traditional methods and materials have been used in all renovations, so the feeling of the space is completely genuine. It is a place with plenty of space for family, guests, animals, farming and hobbies. Maybe you already run your own business or have dreams and plans to start something new like a bed & breakfast? Or it could simply just be your own little idyllic Swedish oasis.

This is the residential building over two floors. When renovating, only natural materials and linseed oil paint have been used to keep in line with the traditional style of the area. Among other things, there is a large pantry, wood stove, four fully functioning fireplaces, recycled functional furnishings and a cozy dining area. Let’s have a look and see how charming this historic place is, and if you want to see more check it out here.

Although many times in the Scandinavian interior world we say that ‘less is more’ I think in a space like this, that sentence doesn’t apply. Here it is all about the quirky wallpapers, vintage details and retro style furnitures as well as mix of colours that helps bring character, charm and hygge.

Around the houses grow a lot of scilla, blue anemones, white anemones, goldenrod, peonies, columbine, ferns, mahonia, forsythia, rhubarb, strawberries, currants and old apple trees that give abundant harvests. Birds, frogs, bumblebees, bees and butterflies thrive here and helps set the idyllic scene.

What do you think? Would you like to live a place like this? I think it is just so charming and the perfect portrayal of Scandinavian hygge…
