If you combine the charm of the English countryside with cozy Scandi style, you’ll get this character-filled farmhouse — for the price of 3,875,000 Swedish krona (or about $591,514 Canadian dollars). The light-filled villa, set on a quiet street in the Swedish town of Alingsås, is completely surrounded by nature, and looks like a dreamy place to escape to every summer. Explore the character-filled retreat below.
A unpaved pathway leads up to the picture-perfect villa, which is surrounded by verdant woods.
The front porch greets you with a patio setup that’s prettied up with an array of potted plants.
A dark green front door ties in the colors of the lush surroundings, contrasting the rusty red façade.
A wall of windows in the porch-style entryway lets tons of natural light in.
Ocher tiles underfoot pair nicely with the wood-panelled walls and ceiling.
The dining room has an airy feel thanks to tall, beamed ceilings with shiplap panelling. A beautiful open fireplace stove adds historic character to the space.
A corner room lends itself as an intimate living room, but can be used as a bedroom if need be.
The light wood floor is complemented by walls adorned in quiet blue wallpaper. Although the room is closed off, there’s plenty of light thanks to windows placed in two directions.
There’s even a cozy reading nook in the living area right by the window.
A floor-to-ceiling shelving unit houses books in this hallway that leads to the kitchen.
In the kitchen, there’s enough room to cook and entertain guests. Granite countertops create a contrast against the neutral cabinetry while yellow and white wallpaper adds interest to the tiled backsplash.
A charming breakfast nook seats four and offers a nice view of the yard.
Wallpaper continues into the bedroom, only this time it’s done in a trad floral print.
The ensuite bathroom exudes classic Scandi style, and comes complete with heated floors.
Adjacent to the bathroom is a spacious sauna.
The bedroom boasts a large terrace.
It’s the perfect spot for morning coffee or a late afternoon snack.

Outside, a picnic table is set under a large tree.
