A spacious and modern family house next to a lake in the calm Swedish countryside of Småland with connections to the world.

We live in a family house in a very small village next to a lake in the Swedish countryside of Småland. We have very different seasons. The summer is quite warm and around midsummer in never gets really dark. Around christmas we have Daylight for about 6 hours and in January and february there is usually snow and below zero.

The house was built in 1945 and whe have lived here since 2005. During this period the bilding has bin totaly modernized and the living area has doubled.

We have a large balcony and porge facing the garden and lake, a small playground, a tree house (ongoing project), a fire place and quite a lot of garden toys.

We have a private bridge with swim ladder and a rowing boat.
