Original Character and Grand Rooms in a Swedish Country House

In an open landscape, surrounded by fields and forest, stands a beautiful red wooden country house that has been carefully renovated to showcase its many historical features. The country house was built in the late 19th century and features a classic six-part layout that originated in 17th-century France.

The spacious and bright rooms retain much of their original character while also being updated to prepare them for present-day life. Pearl rafters, wall panels, wide floor and ceiling beams, and mirrored doors are recurring details, and there are also a large number of fireplaces to add coziness to the rooms.
