This mid-century house in the Swedish town of Skanör harks back to a high point in Scandinavian design.

Built in the 1960s, the property takes cues from the Danish Modernism of that period, popularised by the likes of Arne Jacobsen. The style – similar to its American counterpart – is defined by glass facades and open-plan layouts.

While the detached house has been restored and renovated a few times since its initial construction, it still retains many of its original details, including the hardwood fittings.

Made from brick, wood and glass, the 365 sq m structure also features a twisting oak staircase which connects the lower and upper floors. The back of the house opens onto a landscaped garden, swimming pool and terrace for alfresco dining.

An added bonus – the villa comes with a separate guest house that can be used as a studio or workspace.

Located in Skanör, it’s just minutes from the sea and a short drive from the cities of Malmö and even Copenhagen in Denmark.

The property is on the market via Bjurfors for 8.995 million SEK.
