This time-warp Danish home was designed in 1969 by architect Jesper Lund as his family abode.

Lund was an acolyte of Danish starchitect Arne Jacobsen. His Functionalist, 178-sq-m design has been completely restored by the current owners, down to the original Jacobsen light switches.

Step inside the Hillerød property – on the market via Ivan Eltoft Nielsen for 3.995 m kr – and you’ll find timber beamed ceilings, floor-to-ceiling glass and crisp white walls. The original kitchen has been fully restored and opens onto a large balcony with views of the surrounding woodlands.

In the living room a sculptural yellow staircase swirls down into the property’s lower level, which houses a playroom and three bedrooms, one of which is currently an office / study. All have access to the garden (the home sits on a plot of 1,382 sq m, but it needs a bit of landscaping).

Original cabinetry and floor tiles have also been retained across the house, and according to the owners, they are the same stone used at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebæk.

Available to ‘try before you buy’, the house – which is 40 km north of Copenhagen, in the forest of Grib Sko – can be rented via Airbnb from £156 per night.
