1st spotted on Skeppsholmen/Sotheby’s International Realty, this contemporary dream home in Stockholm sits on a lakefront lot, enjoying all of the views its all-natural landscape delivers.
What is most intriguing about this contemporary luxury residence is the sculptural and asymmetrical architecture–round rooms, carved out rooflines, angled windows and walls, glazed railings and particularly the way it nestles into the sloped hillside with two different elevations at the front and rear. The facade is rather humble, seemingly a one particular-story property till you reach the backyard which is, in essence, the lake.
A zero-edge pool is lined with a mosaic of aqua tiles, mimicking the sky above. The large patio spills from the edge of the home all the way to an overlook ledge which views the water and private dock beneath.
An unexpected, yet really cool style contribution to this ultra-modern day dream residence is the sunken dining and lounge location adjacent to the swimming pool. This rectangular entertaining area is approached by descending a few steps from the primary level of the terrace. Plentiful and colorful pillows add punch to this recessed outside space.
The layout is a swerve of style delight, with the shared dining and living rooms encompassing majority of the primary floor. What needs to be highlighted is the colour scheme–I’m loving the fresh mint accent wall, especially when paired with the orange-red pillows and shades of cream. With the series of huge porthole windows and glazed exterior wall, this living region pops with light. Medium-wood, wide-plank floors throughout inject instant warmth into the spacious interiors.
A floating black wood-burning fireplace anchors the area between the home’s entranceway and living zones, and sits at the best of the elegantly curved staircase. A central lounging terrace with modular sofa is straight off of this open living space.
The kitchen is striking with a gleaming stainless steel countertop. Upper and lower cabinetry is clad in a horizontal wood pattern, creating a sleek linear impact in contrast to the slightly rustic floral wall paper. The eat-in nook sits inside the rotunda, generating a cozy space to dine.
The much more private locations of the bedrooms and glass-enclosed wine cellar reside downstairs at ground level. The master suite is draped in a soothing palette of mocha and white, whilst the spa bath is rich with charcoal stone walls and glass tiles. The connecting wardrobe closet is a stunner, with customized cabinetry embracing a plush tufted ottoman.
The Contemporary Lake Residence is a unique dream house with endless views to completely soak up the lake surroundings and enjoy a waterfront life-style.
