An urban rooftop retreat with wraparound terraces has hit the market in Stockholm’s Söldermalm for 13.9m kr.

The ‘roof house’ is a small villa that sits atop a historic apartment building dating back to 1932 on the island. It’s set over two storeys and has large windows that look across the neighbouring rooftops, as well as 124 metres of private balconies with views towards Verkstadsgatan and Högalid Church.

Rooms inside the three-bedroom rooftop house – on the market via Sotheby’s International Realty affiliate Skeppsholmen – are voluminous thanks to soaring 3.4-metre-tall ceilings, and a crisp white walls that have been hung with artwork. Several wood burning stoves dot the Stockholm property, adding to its cabin-like feel.
