Spread across just three rooms, this 64 sq m Stockholm apartment is proof that size isn’t everything.
It may be modest but the current owners have pulled out all the stops to get the most from its floor plan.
Tricks include placing a guest bed atop a store room and using a glass partition to create two rooms out of one, without obstructing the natural light. (Curtains can be pulled across for privacy.)
Meanwhile, high ceilings ensure that what it lacks in square footage, it makes up for in volume.
The flat was built at the turn of the 20th century and given a complete overhaul earlier this year – but it still wears its history visibly.
Original hardwood floors have been sanded and restored throughout, and period stucco work and ceiling medallions have been retained and repainted. Two working fireplaces – one a wood burning stove, the other a refurbished period fireplace, reinstated in 2008 – are the other key features of the space.
Both the bathroom and kitchen have been completely refitted and in the latter, the building’s brickwork has been exposed.
Within walking distance of downtown, the Kungsholmen apartment is on the market via Fantastic Frank for offers over £440,000.
