It might be a bit rough around the edges, but this property in Sweden’s Alvesta has heaps of potential.
The 164 sq m fixer-upper is on the market for 375,000 SEK and has been vacant for a number of years. Despite its creakiness, the 1909 Moheda home has a wealth of period features, including a glass porch with ornately patterned windows.
Inside the house, you’ll find seven traditional Swedish stoves – which need a little restoration work – as well as timber walls and wooden floors. According to listing agent Camilla Cederlund at HusmanHagberg, the property comprises a ground floor apartment set across six rooms, and a smaller independent apartment on the upper level. It could be reunited as one single-family home, or restored as two units, offering potential rental income for the new buyer.
Nyekvarn 1 Solhäll sits on a plot of 6,670 sq m, though (like the house) the gardens will need some landscaping to bring them back to their best. The Swedish property also has an outbuilding, which could be turned into a studio workshop, or provide extra accommodation, subject to planning.
