Buying a deserted house (ødegård) with forest in Southern Sweden

My wife and I bought an old house, or in fact an old forest farm, in Sweden this spring to have as a vacation house or fritidshus / sommerhus as we say in Danish. The property is lying in the Swedish landscape of Blekinge in southern Sweden. Blekinge is well known for its nice climate - expressed in the notion of Blekinge being the garden of Sweden.

I have always since boyhood loved the forest and dreamed about having a forest. So now my dreams came through. The area is about 10 hectares, or 100.000 m2, and has a length of 0.6 kilometer down to the attractive Bräkneån, a stream rich in fish and crayfish.

It is still possible to find a very attractive old house in Southern Sweden and to buy it for a reasonable price - but who knows how long time that will last.

I have put some of my experience into another website about such property: svensk ødegård or torp, as we say in Danish.

The stable is red, the socalled svenskrød color, typical for many ødegårde in Sweden.

The main house of our 'ødegård' is yellow, not so typical as svenskrød for ødegårde in Sweden. The yellow color is also called herregårdsgul, meaning mannor yellow.
On this photo of our new property it is clear to see the typical basement with stone cellar.
