Property of the week: a grand apartment in a Swedish castle

Noble digs

Everybody thinks their home is their castle, but this Swedish property really ups the ante.

According to the listing, the Swedish apartment suite takes up half a floor inside of Lennartsnäs Castle, and one of its bedroom suites was used by Oscar II, King of Sweden and Norway.

But don’t expect turrets and moats… The period building is actually a mansion that dates back to the late 18th century, and is being sold as six separate dwellings by a private housing association.

This apartment – on the market via Wrede for 7.75m SEK – comprises eight rooms in total, and is currently configured as a three-bedroom dwelling. The floor plan could be updated by its new owner however.

Rooms come with high ceilings and a mix of period features, including traditional tiled stoves, wooden floorboards and picture windows. It also has a French balcony with views of nearby Lake Mälaren.

Lennartsnäs Castle is surrounded by 30,000 sq m of beautiful woodland and park. It has its own fishing and steamboat pier, tennis courts and gardens and is close to stables and a golf course.

The Swedish property will need a dose of TLC however to bring it into the 21st century: the kitchen and bathroom need replacing, and its traditional decor could use a spruce. But when your bones are this good, what’s a little nip-and-tuck?
