In the heart of Särö, you will find Villa Fjellbo beautifully situated on a sloping corner plot of 2,410 sqm. The villa was built by the wholesaler and shipowner August Carlsson in 1896. In 1903, the Fjellbo family acquired the property, and sold it to the Keiller family the same year. The Keiller family, who also founded Götaverken, kept the property in their possession until 1957. In the same year, the villa was renovated into a year-round residence and four additional families would come to reside in the villa prior to the present owners.
The stately and compelling stone steps lead you up to the entrance of the villa. The entrance level boasts spacious living areas and, like the house itself, is characterized by genuine craftsmanship. Solid plank floors featuring underfloor heating, panelled doors along with ceilings decorated with bead boards. The large window sections offer a magnificent play of light and provide a private view of the lush landscape. The dining room holds a solid dining table and is adorned with an extraordinary wainscoting along with hand-painted wallpaper. Large rustic kitchen featuring excellent work surfaces along with larder and wood-burning stove.
On the upper floor you will find the five bedrooms of this home including a living room, all rooms of which are characterized by solid plank flooring and ceilings decorated with bead boards. You will also find built-in storage as well as a bathroom with bathtub on this level. The main bedroom overlooking the garden features a fireplace and walk-in closet. The bedrooms facing west provide views of the nature reserve. Additionally, one of these also presents a tiled stove. The fifth bedroom overlooking the magnificent oak is perhaps the most exceptional. According to legend, this bedroom has been occupied by King Gustaf V on several occasions.
The villa's 301 sqm is divided into a living area of 252 sqm in addition to an apartment of 49 sqm. The apartment offers two rooms as well as a kitchen.
The garage was built in 2018 along with an additional apartment of ca 70 sqm. In 2021, the Building Committee in the municipality of Kungsbacka appointed its annual architecture award, where this garage building was nominated in the category \"Residential Building\".
