Property descriptionThis fantastic timber home occupies an outstanding location on a beautiful slope that leads down to the Indalsälven River. It is a wonderful place to live having a great sense of space and airiness throughout, and views that peer down on lovely alpine meadows. The house has been renovated in a tasteful way that includes beeswax treatment of the hundred-year-old wooden floors, and gleaming green Liskiffer slate flooring from Norway, turf roofs from Nittedal and black facades treated with pine tar to create a unique stylish look.Upon entering the house, you will encounter a hall with slate floors, wardrobes with sliding doors, tasteful old wood furnishings and hinges and other fittings of black wrought iron. There is plenty of storage for outdoor clothing here, as well as providing space for the geothermal heating system of the house and extra water heaters. From the hall you enter a large living room that is open up to the roof ridge where the roof rests on stately logs. There are windows that face the mountain and those that offer a view down toward the river, where anglers will appreciate the outstanding fly fishing for trout, amidst the beautiful streams and rapids. If you want to build a large stately country kitchen in this part of the house, you will find that the preparations are in place, including water and sewage lines. Beyond this is a bedroom section with a lovely hall, windows and glass doors, a master bedroom with a cast iron heating stove, slate floors and exposed timber walls. The bathroom here has marble flooring, a wall-mounted toilet, built-in wooden cabinetry, a shower corner and a very inviting sauna that faces west. In addition, this part of the house has a bedroom with custom-built furnishings similar to the ones in the entrance hall. Beyond a large slate portico with beautiful wooden sliding doors, you will find another parlour that is open to the roof ridge, and has windows in several directions and a magnificent fireplace that is a copy of the one in Sverresborg Castle, in Trondheim. Half a flight of stairs down there is a small family room with a ceiling to floor window fronting on a sheltered patio where the Ottaskifer slate from southern Dovrefjäll creates a feeling of warmth. This part of the house has an additional entrance, as well as a fully tiled bathroom with a shower and toilet. The further part of the house that is closest to Indalsälven River has four split levels with a cosy kitchen and a dining area with windows fronting on the courtyard. This section is also open all the way up to the ridge and features exposed beams. The kitchen is equipped with a hob, dishwasher, fan, oven and has plenty of cabinets. Half a flight up from the kitchen is a living room with a fireplace. This room is currently being used as an office but can easily be converted into an additional bedroom. From here there is a stairway that leads up to an inviting sleeping loft with half-moon windows and a view that extends down to the kitchen. Half a flight of stairs down from the kitchen is a sleeping section with two bedrooms, the smaller of which has built-in bunk beds. The bedrooms offer you a lovely view to the beautiful alpine meadows where you can watch the animals graze in the summer. There is also a fully-tiled bathroom with a shower, toilet and sink. Furthermore, this section of the house includes a half flight staircase down to the basement section, which includes ample storage space, as well as a washer / dryer.
