House by the Oslofjord, Norway

Our property is situated by the Oslofjord, 20 km south of Oslo, with beach and woods close by. The main house is a traditional wooden house built 1907 with an addition built 1999 in brick. The house is large and comfortable, suites a family with children. We have five bedrooms, two bathrooms, kitchen, dining room and living room. There is also a smaller separate flat with kitchen, living room, bedroom and bath room. The garden is spacious with grass, flowers and fruit trees, areas for sitting and a barbeque. There is a beck running through the garden and a small, natural waterfall in the innermost part of the garden. The property also consists of annex, garage, garden shed and greenhouse.

We have two friendly cats, two birds and a small aquarium with a few fish.

There are plenty of things to do or see nearby. It takes 40 min to go to Oslo by car, 1 hour by bus and ferry. 20 min to go to Norway's largest amusement park "TusenFryd". Nesodden / Oslo is also a good starting point for longer trips to i.e. Gudbrandsdal, Telemark or the west coast of Norway with the famous fjords such as Lysefjord, Sognefjord and Geirangerfjord.

Our Neighbourhood

Our house is situated on the west coast of the peninsula Nesodden, 20 km south of Oslo. Nesodden has a nice climate for being Norway and the landscape is very scenic with beaches and cliffs along the coast line. From ca 1880 Nesodden therefore became popular as a holiday resort for Oslo-citizens who built summer houses/cottages there. After 1950 Nesodden gradually has become more of a suburb to Oslo. A large part of the inhabitants are artists, actors, musicians etc. The village where we live, Fjellstrand, developed ca 1900 with summer houses for the middle class of Oslo; The area closest to the coastline still beares this caracter. The area is very sunny (sun sets at 22 in summer) and very pretty with lovely views.
