Idyllically set high on a peninsula at the eastern side of Lake Mjörn, overlooking it, this staggering Swedish Royal Castle is now listed for sale. The so-dubbed Bryngenäs Palace tops a land that used to look great even thousands of years ago.
Surrounded by fertile fields, oak forests, gorgeous countryside and steep cliffs, Bryngenäs Palace is pretty close to Gothenburg, the Landvetter Airport and Alingsås. There are also plenty of horseback riding centers nearby and a staggeringly superb golf course just a few kilometers away, on the shores of Lake Mjörn, in Öijared.
Comprising a humongous total of 903,661 square meters and approximately 550,000 square meters of waters, this acknowledged protected biotope area also includes 4 hectares of superb forested land. The way towards the castle is paved just as a driveway and goes through a massive park with rhododendron bushes and lawns alongside a sandstone baptismal font from the 15th century, a fountain and a sculpture. With all of these and the pristinely clean air around it, this makes for a gorgeous residence for kings and queens.
On the historical side, the palace was completed back in 1780 and rebuilt in 1868. It sports an oak frame with yellow plaster coating, plus a brand new roof with plenty of shingles and copper plating. Accommodation-wise, it boasts three halls and 15 rooms with elegant parquet flooring, a staggering fireplace as the focal point of the palace and a green study with ceiling decor. Unfolding along the side of the palace, we’ll find the dining room, salon and study superbly aligned with frontage towards the lake. Exquisitely enough, part of the cellar works as wine storage.
The whole property, with everything we’ve mentioned so far, is listed at 29 million SEK or approximately $3.5 million.
