    Absolutely lovely. You will freeze your a$$ off in the winter. However, if you have enough money to buy this spot, you will obviously have enough money to go to Spain in the winter.

    I like the blue accent color on the barns & exteriors. I like the fat cat in the house picture. But the bear creeped me out.

    I noticed the cat, too. I'd negotiate to have the cute grey and the cat come with the place.

    With google translate I think the house has radiant heating in the floors. Yummy.

    6.2 million is my guess.

    I just did a calculation on the assessed value, and if I'm correct on the price, I think I'm selling my house and moving to Sweden.

    Anyone else find all the American flag throw pillows odd? Odd or not, if I could afford this place I would dedicate every second of my free time to learning Swedish and move there ASAP.

    Not odd but my OCD went nuts and I wanted to flip the upside down one right side up.

    Thats actually in the very south of Sweden. Very mild weather since its basically next to the Baltic! The weather is much much nicer than the northern states! Now if it was up north where I live I would agree with you.

    Yes, you would probably both go to Sunshine Tour in Spain in february AND Arezzo in Italy in march and then star in your own show in april at this farm... :-)

    The assessvalue mentioned is far from what they will sell this property for. It´s just a value the swedish government tax this property at (a percentage of that every year).

    It´s not sold, just came on the market but I thought it would be fun to have a guess. It´s in the very south of Sweden and weatherwise it´s pretty much like the Bostonarea but with shorter winter and less snow or England but not quite so rainy. The area is sandy so footing is very stable and almost never muddy.

    In US terms this property would be situated in the Wellington area. Horsecountry with a big H.

    PS Bear is probably optional DS

    Don't worry COTHers! When I become fabulously wealthy (let's say 5-10 years from now, to be safe) I'll buy it and offer sponsored positions for 2-3 promising young riders, with frequent visits from Rolf-Goran Bengtsson. All they'll have to do is occasionally coach my butt around a 3'6" course and keep their hands off Sven, my Swedish masseur!

    As far as I can tell, besides liking horses, the owners like American flag pillows, wine, and rocks.

    Nice place.
