Finland as a country consistently ranks among top-5 nations in the world when it comes to various key ratios such as school rankings (PISA), least corrupted nation in the world and various happiness indexes to mention a few. We can now offer this great must-see listing which is only one hour drive from downtown Helsinki. This estate comes with almost 7 hectares (ca 15 acres) of land with many buildings with the oldest building dating back to the 18th century. Total living space is 740 m2 (circa 8000 ft2).

I drive along Vahijärventie. The landscape is idyllic. Beautiful farms and fields, and yet the journey only takes an hour from Helsinki. When I arrive, the beautiful iron gate is open. I drive the car to the garage and sit in the yard for a while, the day is hot. The courtyard area is spacious and the large trees shade suitably in the beautiful sunshine, but still, it is warm. The gaze wanders around the yard, with birds singing somewhere. You can often see deer, but not today, is it too hot?


In addition to the manor, the estate contains with many buildings and plots;


Garage (cold) that holds several cars and, in the middle, there are spaces for small machines. Quite comfortable even for the winter. In addition, there is a separate garden workshop on the plot, a good extra space for garden tools and garden furniture.


Today, the round gazebo functions as a barbecue house. Today, thanks to the warm weather, the gazebo does not need any heating, but the electric and gas heating enables many pleasant late evenings during the spring and autumn. In the past, this has been a dance floor.

The old log cabin on two floors is charming. There are 6 large rooms downstairs and upstairs. The original year of construction is not known, but the assumption is that the shed dates from the 18th century.


Pehtorintupa was also built in the 18th century, this beautiful house has undergone an extensive renovation. The space is divided into two floors. The material choices have been successful and there is a lot of sense of space. The upper floor has a wet room and a spacious kitchen. In the lower floor there are two bedrooms and a living room, in addition there is space in the attic. This is suitable for many life situations, from guest cottages to second generation or business use. Geothermal heat pump.


I walk across the yard.

The separate log building can easily accommodate a larger party. On the other side is a spacious hall that seats about 30 people. The bar kitchen has both a stove and a dishwasher. At the south end of the building there is a large terrace that continues around the heated pool. The pool has been in good use, both in the morning and in the evening. Air heat pump.

The main house itself, Askola Manor, is a lavish house on four floors.

Large balconies, beautiful windows, solid stone stairs and robust exterior doors creates an impressive whole.

An extensive renovation was completed in 2005, almost the entire house was renovated. Investments have been made in building technology, mechanical ventilation with heat recovery, geothermal energy, air heat pumps, etc. All material choices are of high quality with the spirit of the house in mind and the result is both elegant and comfortable.


On the ground floor, in addition to the garage, e.g. a large hobby room that currently has a gym and table tennis. Separate spa area with several saunas so you can choose between an infrared sauna, a steam sauna and a "regular" sauna. The technical facilities are also located on the ground floor.



The whole thing cannot be described in words, it is a must in place, and it suits both the family and the entrepreneur.

Welcome home!
