Property of the week: A converted train station in Sweden

This red-brick building is now a first class home

Historic details abound in this converted train station, built by architect Folke Zettervall in southern Sweden in 1912. Ticket booths still remain and the ground floor waiting room now acts as a living room.

The station – on the market for 2.795m SEK via Fastighetsbyrån – is located in Norrvidinge, close to Malmö. Its redbrick walls have been left exposed and the stone floor restored.

Moving upstairs, you’ll find an open-plan kitchen and dining room. Its whitewashed walls juxtapose rugged steel beams painted in black.

Grand arched windows and tall ceilings amplify the sense of space in the two-bedroom home, which spans three storeys.

The top floor has yet to be converted, so there’s still room for you to leave your mark. This sun-soaked attic has been left raw with exposed wooden beams and floorboards. It could be turned into an extra bedroom, or used as a studio space. The choice is yours.
