Our villa in Edsåsdalen, as seen in the TV show Grand Design Sverige, is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. A villa whose design is so thought through that staying there will provide complete serenity. The villa is an A-frame shaped house, inspired by the environment to have the shape of the surrounding mountains. The south side of the house is the side covered in floor to ceiling windows, to soak up as much of the bright sunlight, whereas the north side provides protection against the wintery weather. The house has been designed by architect Måns Tham, and is truly a piece of art rather than just another great villa. All floors, walls and ceilings are paneled in larch wood, which in its younger years provide a truly light colour, but age to a darker brown through its years. There are no lists in the entire villa, but through its exquisite craftsmanship all corners connect seamlessly to perfection. This is a great choice of villa for 2 to 3 families or a group of adult friends getting together for a ski trip!
The house consists of five bedrooms and is divided into three “suites”, where each suite includes its own bathroom, lounge furniture and wardrobes. The ground floor holds the master bedroom which is located right next to the sauna both looking out over the mountains in the south. The sauna fits up to 8 people at the same time. The top floor holds the remaining two suites. Each of those suites have two bedrooms and one bathroom.
The villa has a welcoming lobby which holds the ski equipment room. On the ground floor you will also find the large common living area which holds a fantastic kitchen with cooking island, and a large dining table. The sofa corner has a built in sofa throughout the entire corner fitting 15 adults together, which surrounds the unique and modern tiled fireplace.
Wifi is of course available throughout the property and the kitchen comes with modern appliances. There is a utility room with washing machine and dryer as well.
The house has a ski-in ski-out option for more advanced skiers to the nearby slopes of Edsåsdalen. The villa is surrounded by many untouched wilderness areas, great for hikes and bike tours in summer, and of course great for hikes but also cross country skiing in winter. There are plenty of outdoor activities that can be arranged in this amazing natural area.
The centre of Åre and its surrounding ski slopes is a just short 20 minute drive away. From Åre Östersund Airport it is around an hour drive to the villa.
