One of the most beautiful homes in Djursholm is on the market. Formerly the vicarage of Danderyd Parish, it is now a very luxurious and centrally located family home, convenient to everything. This magnificent home, built in 1915, was designed by the noted architect Karl Güettler, for the Church of Sweden. The area of property totals almost 700 m2, including 476 m2 of living space. This beautiful home features many unique original details and a row of large rooms for socializing and entertaining, all of which enjoy fantastic natural light from all the windows facing south-west. Here there are rustic stone floors in medieval format, lierne vaults, coffered ceilings with murals, and elevated central sections, as well as three richly ornamented fireplaces and plenty of other beautiful details from the period of construction. There is an inviting entrance hall with a fireplace and a guest lavatory. The main floor includes a dining room, a living room with a beautiful oriel, a fireplace and a door out to a terrace. There is also a TV room, as well as an additional room, which can be used as an office and has a separate entrance, a guest lavatory and a bedroom. This level includes a spacious country kitchen that has a door out to the garden. The upper floor has six bedrooms, two bathrooms and a family room with a heating stove. The basement level includes large storage rooms, a gym, wine cellar and a laundry room. The finished loft has a bedroom and a sitting room, as well as abundant natural light from the new skylights. This is a home with a fantastic atmosphere created by the abundant natural light from the large windows located throughout. The wonderful, fenced-in garden ensures you’ll enjoy privacy, and features a variety of plants, flowers and trees, with sunny paved patios that face south-west orientation.
The location of the house is perfect for a large family. Several desirable educational institutions, from preschools to upper secondary schools, are within walking distance. The house is located almost equidistant to Ösby School, Ekeby School, Vasa School, Danderyd Upper Secondary School and Viktor Rydberg School. The proximity to public transport, such as the Ösby train station, makes commuting into Stockholm easy, and lets you avoid all the rush hour traffic. Teenagers will appreciate the public transportation, such as the easy train ride to Täby Centre where they can see a film, for example. The surrounding area features beautiful natural scenery and plenty of walking trails, such as those in the bird sanctuary around Lake Ösby, or the hiking trail around Lake Ekeby and the stables. Close to the house, there are also golf courses, tennis courts and plenty of activities for adults and children.
