Holiday home of the week: a lakeside retreat in Denmark

The Light House in Denmark’s Agger is a lakeside holiday home that glows like a beacon on the shore.

Freshly completed by Søren Sarup of Puras Architects, the Danish holiday home sits within a fishing village in the Thy National Park, just 650 metres from the North Sea coast. The villa is bedded into the landscape, surrounded by sand dunes and heathlands which provide inspiration for its tawny exterior.

The Light House comprises two interlocking structures: a slate-covered A-frame house and a sloping rectangular volume that’s clad in rustic Douglas fir panels. Shared living spaces fill the main horizontal volume, with the open living room and kitchen looking onto the lake via floor-to-ceiling glass windows.

Its Scandi-style interiors are pared back, with white walls and pale wooden floors used throughout, and a contemporary wood burning fireplace taking pride of place in the living room.

A master bedroom with ensuite bathroom is tucked into the east wing of the property – available to rent via Holiday Architecture and Aavego (price on application) – and two more are set beneath the gabled roof of the A-frame wing, with views over Flade Lake and out to the Lodberg Lighthouse.
