Liseleje is a beloved fishing village northwest of Copenhagen that sits among a stretch of Zealand, sometimes called the Danish Riviera. The coastal resort town has attracted generations of Danes to spend long summers along its sandy beaches and sample its laid-back atmosphere.
Architect Henning Larsen designed this Zealand holiday home in the dunes of Marehalmen in 2009, inspired by the town’s local fishing shacks and summer lodges. The beach house boasts panoramic views of the Kattegat and neighbouring Tisvilde Hegn, visible through its horizon-facing glass facade that captures sunrise and sunset.
And though inspired by simple fishing architecture, the beach house ups the ante on specs. It has a split-level design and minimalist Danish interiors, with the dining room and all-white Boform kitchen on the ground level flowing onto a vast waterfront Ipé deck with a heated infinity pool and the sound of waves crashing beyond.
Eight steps lead to the upper floor, where the living room and bedrooms are tucked beneath the ceiling vault.
They say the devil is in the detail, and Kystvej 8 doesn’t disappoint: wide Dinensen floor planks run throughout, door handles are Arne Jacobsen classics, and the outdoor show is by Boffi. Not to mention all the wardrobes and cabinetry are designed bespoke for the white-washed house.
Water heat pumps heat the pool and the property with temperatures adjustable from room to room. There’s also a Hydropool spa with space for five – perfect for stargazing and drinking in the sea views.
Fantastic Frank lists the Danish property for 20m DKK or around €2.68m.
