This beautifully preserved apartment with turn of the century details is situated in a stone building dating from the early 1900s, located in Linnéstaden, a charming neighborhood in Gothenburg, Sweden. Discovered on the real estate site Alvehem, this home showcases a well appointed floor plan of just 742 square feet (69 square meters). Bright and airy, with high ceilings, preserved flooring, a newly refurbished and fully functional fireplace in the living area and deep window niches that offers plenty of sunlight. You will find the home’s entryway to be very welcoming and bright, with a storage closet and additional space for shelving, a console table and even a couple of chairs adorning the space.

To the right of the hallway you will find an inviting and airy kitchen that was renovated just a few years ago. The space offers views out over a lush courtyard and plenty of sunshine spilling into the space. Stainless steel appliances mixed with black granite countertops and white cabinets. There are a couple of seating options in this space, a built-in bench that not only provides storage but also a great view over the open courtyard. There is also a cozy breakfast nook where you can sit and conveniently watch the television that is built-in over the vent hood.
