High up in a 1913 art nouveau building, this Stockholm apartment has good bone structure: oak parquet flooring, wood panelling and big windows overlooking nearby parks.
You’ll want to keep furniture to a minimum to enjoy the full impact of the 1,700 sq ft space, available for 12.5 million SEK (£1 million) via Karlsson Uddare.
Located in Riddarfjärden near the city’s Lake Mälaren, the four-bed apartment comes with a balcony overlooking an internal courtyard. Traditional Swedish stoves and bay windows add to the interior’s appeal.
And if the property’s expansive proportions aren’t enough, you can buy the two-bed, 678 sq ft apartment next door.
