The Unassuming House in the Suburbs

The Swedish suburbs have a bad rap. They’re outdated, lonely, ugly, dangerous, isolated, ugly, cold, shabby, and far away from civilization. The houses totally isolated from civilization tend to be the pretty Swedish summer houses. The rest are not so lucky.

But we found one house that beats the odds.

It is by far average on the outside.

  1. Wow. Actually, that’s not a bad deal, assuming it’s furnished as such!

    I would enjoy that place myself, and it would easily be worth the commute!

  2. My house is worth about that much, but with 4 dogs,3 cats and 2 lazy owners…it looks bugger all like that one!! :)

  3. It looks kinda American (and apparently Swedish?) actually, like a miniature of those houses they display on MTV cribs. Like “hey, I just got shitloads of money but no taste so I’ll pick something from each continent and put it in a small building”. Now they just have to build a garage to house like 10 cars, 2 more kitchens and a room with like a strip pole and a couple of arcade games in it or something, I heard that is what you buy when you just won the lottery!

  4. LOLOL Tony.

    It actually looks very Swedish (definitely European) to me. It’s not common to see baroque style in American houses though I’ve seen baroque wallpapers, lamps, etc available from Ikea to NK.

    Perhaps it’s over the top, but then again, that was the baroque time!

    Shall we all pitch in to buy? 4 bedrooms!!

  5. Well it’s definitely not Swedish, remember, you live in the land of lagom, and that’s far from! Or maybe those middle aged women using words like “läcker”, “häftig” and “ärtig” whilst wearing clothes with strange patterns and too much perfume. Those would thrive in that environment!
