3 bedroom wooden house, 25 min by train to Helsinki

Our 105 m2 house is located in a green, neighbour-friendly area with plenty to do for all ages. For children there are many playgrounds with no need to cross any road, teenagers have cinema and city centre within 15 minute walk and adults can enjoy the nearby lake and its swimming / exercise possibilities. Järvenpää is 25 minutes from Helsinki centre by train or car, but itself has both restaurants and supermarkets. We find Järvenpää a great place to live with kids.

We have our own garden as well as a shared area with our 3 neighbours. Our terraced house has two stories with an open kitchen / dining room on the bottom floor, together with a living room and toilet. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms, toilet with sauna, and a balcony. There is 1 double bed, 2 single beds and downstairs both the kitchen sofa and living room sofa can be converted to beds (kitchen sofa length 180cm). Should more beds be needed mattresses can be used. There is also a baby bed available.

We have 4 bicycles available: 2 adult, 1 child (5-9 years), 1 small child (2-4 years).
