Villa Backa is an unusually beautiful and characteristic turn-of-the-century dream house from 1907, built by agricultural engineer Otto Nilsson. During this time period, the building served as the main house for the largest private estate in Höörs municipality. The house's architectural style is heavily influenced by local Scanian architecture and especially Bosjökloster slott with the house's stepped gables and a robust granite foundation made from hand-cleaved granite blocks. The current owner, who's owned the property since 1997, commissioned and completed a restoration and modernization of the main house in order to let it flourish once again as a private home. Today, Villa Backa is a magical and characteristic turn-of-the-century dream home with large, generous rooms. The fire place on the first floor as well as in the cellar, beautiful wooden floors throughout, entrancing stuccos in the ceiling as well as fantastically beautiful door posts invite you to enter the house's drawing rooms. The genuinely rustic has been complemented by more luxurious details in a gentle harmony. For example, the house includes a bespoke kitchen from the Uppsala-based 'Canadaköket' which comes with a gas stove from Italian Ilve as well as stucco-dressed cupboards, just to mention some of the house's many beautiful details. The first floor comprises five beautiful salons as well as an especially magnificent drawing room which serves as the heart of the house. The beautiful fire place and the unique staircase which lead us up to the family's private rooms on the second floor are entrancingly beautiful. Family floor with six outstanding bedrooms. Under the whole house you will find a generously sized and luxurious cellar floor including, among others, a family room and a wine cellar.The garage building was built in 2000 and was drawn by an architect with the intention of creating a design in harmony with the main house. The result is impressive. Stepped gables have been combined with a modern guest floor, garage with space for three cars - all of it designed in the same characteristic style as the original building. The garden, landscaped as a park with a grass lawn billowing beautifully towards the impressive courtyard and pillars outside of the entrance, frames the stately, old oaks in the garden. Welcome!
