Located in a very attractive and high-end residential area just outside of Oslo, Norway, this beautiful estate sits just 20 meters away from the shoreline, offering its lucky owners phenomenal panoramic views, in a wonderfully secluded location, overlooking the bay towards the small white town of Sandvika.
The lavish brick mansion before you was actually built on a small island, connected by bridge to the mainland, with small canals around the island which offer fantastic fishing opportunities, and the chance to admire a scenic trail of yachts and boats circling the island. Covering 690 square meters or 7,427 square feet of living area, which is spread across 3 floors, this home is a wild dream ready to come true.
The ground floor shows off a spacious hall, a fully equipped bar with a cozy fireplace and seating areas, not to mention an incredible indoor pool and fitness room with an én suite bathroom. On a practical side, the large laundry room and 4-car garage, as well as solarium and maid’s quarters can be also found here, while the first floor is home to a generous living room, a TV room, a spacious dining room and a fully equipped gourmet kitchen.
The second level is where the master suite is located, comprising a large walk-in, a deluxe én suite with a centered tub, double sinks and a double shower; there’s also a private balcony, for those moments when the lucky owners of this property decide a hot coffee goes well with the marvelous colors of sunrise.
We should also mention that this charming brick mansion has been designed by the renowned Norwegian architect Find Sandmel, with its interiors featuring custom-made materials and furniture, courtesy of famous Italian design houses Versace and Fendi.
The entire house underwent a full refurbishment in 2008/2009 and it’s presented in pristine condition right now, with a couple of unique features in the package, such as its own slice of private beach, with the access down to the pier and beach paved with underfloor heating; the driveway is also paved with underfloor heating, just in case you’re worried about Norway’s cold winters.
Needless to say, this property is right on top of our favorite dream houses ever and we think its price, $7,900,000, might be a bargain for what this waterfront mansion offers.
