House in Risskov, Denmark

Comfortable 200 squaremeter modern house with full bay view from all rooms. The house is located at the end of a private and closed road 20 meters above sea level and with panorama view of the Aarhus bay area. Our quarter is a semiprivate, quiet  area nested into the forest . The beach is 200 meters in front of the house, the forest is in the backyand and downtown Aarhus is 3 km away along a bikepath at sea shore.
The house has 2.5 levels. The lower level consists of large utility room, two bedrooms: one with a double bed, one with one/two single beds . Furthermore an   office ,a bathroom, laundry facilities and entrance hall. The intermediate floor consists of kitchen, dining area and all year winter garden. The upper floor consists of living room, walk in closet, master bathroom and master bedroom.There is exit to terrasses from the two upper levels with full outdoor garden furniture, a total of three terasses of which two are overlooking the bay and the third is closed.
 We are a couple in our mid-sixties,Ove  professor at the university and rector of engineering  school, Elsebeth retired social worker. We had great experiences of exchange ( Switzerland, France and U.S)when our kids were young. In  the summer of 2011 we had another succesfull exchange with France.In autumn 2011 and spring 2012 we are open to long weekends, and  during mid-October and Easter up till one week  in Europe.. We like hiking, swimming ( year round in the clean waters here) kayaking .          We are allergic to cats !
Aarhus is an attractive city ( the second largest in DK) with various cultural activities - and notorious for its green surroundings - parks, forests, coastline. The national park of Mols Bjerge can be reached in ½ hour , Legoland in 50 minutes, the west coast by the North Sea in two hours -Copenhagen in three hours. A small country with an offer of  versatile experiences.Car exchange  is an option - but  not necessary for us. Public transportation is  within easy access.
