Denmark! Coastal artist’s home and studio, traditional Danish farmhouse circa 1913 near the beaches of Fjaltring, Denmark!
This feels like something out of a dream – a muted, green expanse dotted with white windmills and then the North Sea crashing and misty beyond. I can see why artists are attracted to this place! The property itself has such a vast amount of interior space. I can see so much potential here.
From the listing on EDC.dk:
Atmospheric and charming three-building property about 150 m to the North Sea For both newcomers and native seafarers, there are many good reasons to take an extra good look at this property. You get an exciting three-building Strandingsgård with lots of good square meters and opportunities. The beautiful location right by the dunes is definitely worth noting. Fjaltring is one of its own little gems, because over the years the old village on the west coast has become a hotbed for creative forces. Historically, the area’s residents have subsisted on agriculture and fishing, but gradually it is studios and art workshops rather than cutters and agricultural machinery that fill the historic properties. Coastal protection against the North Sea is in place, and at the southern hips there are excellent beaches. From the front door is in close to the water’s edge, and the beautiful landscape with dunes, mare straw and fields. In 2014, Fjaltring’s residents bought the village’s old grocery farm, while the town similarly has a very lively association life and a good free school. Harboesgård is a historic West Jutland Strandingsgård. The property consists of a beautiful farmhouse from 1913 and two lengths of 250 m2 and 162 m2 respectively. One extension has been professionally and lovingly restored after the Bodil storm with self-supporting timber construction with timber from the famous ship “Louisiana” which sank on its maiden voyage off Fjaltring Strand in 1878. The north end is prepared for the construction of modern homes or apartments for possible rental . There is also a large plot of 8,722 m2 belonging to the property, so if you have garden dreams of delicious courtyards or seaweed beds with potatoes, asparagus and other old beach varieties, just get started. With its entire 235 square meters of living space, the farmhouse alone offers more space than most people need, so for the large or space-consuming family, the beautiful house on Rubyvej is an attractive topic. Overall, the home is in very nice condition with nice plank floors and beautiful details such as ceilings with wood panels. On the ground floor you get three rooms, one of which is quite spacious, and in addition there is a large kitchen-dining room and two living rooms en suite. The kitchen is done with a nice interior, and just like in one living room, a wood-burning stove with both cosiness and dry heat in the winter months when it is most needed. There is also a thinking coke oven in the TV room. The house also has two available rooms, a small toilet plus a large bathroom with shower and tub. Finally, you have two separate first floors – one with a single room, the other with a room and a large bright living room / studio etc. with ceiling to kip.
