This slice of paradise with contemporary cabins is the epitome of Swedish lagom.
On the Söderhamn archipelago, a private island with a cluster of cozy cabins is on the the market for roughly $1.4 million. Named Gåsharsskäret, the 0.27-acre island is perfectly located in an inlet just 328 feet from the mainland—close enough for city conveniences without sacrificing privacy and tranquility.
The island’s five recently constructed contemporary cabins are positioned for uninterrupted sea views. The dwellings include a 829-square-foot main house, a 323-square-foot detached guest house, a 129-square-foot "beach house" with bunk rooms, a 775-square-foot studio with soaring 16.5-foot-tall ceilings, as well as a 129-square-foot wood-fired sauna. Also on-site is a wood-burning outdoor hot tub and a clearing that can serve as a helicopter landing pad.
Six bedrooms are spread out across four of the buildings, which are all wrapped in red-painted wood siding punctuated by large windows. Wraparound timber decks expand the living space to the outdoors.
The interiors are minimalist; a light-toned material palette keeps the focus on the archipelago landscape, which is defined by sea views, flat rock cliffs, sandy beaches, and open meadows.
"The property also includes an easement for a boat berth on the mainland," according to Sotheby’s International Realty. "There is an additional easement regarding land on the island, in favor of the property owner, which gives the purchaser ownership of the entire island."
Gåsharsskäret, Other Stockholm, Stockholm, 826 77 Sweden is now being listed by Sotheby's International Realty for 13,900,000 Swedish Krona. See the full listing here.
