From a bridge leading over one of Stensjön's (The Stone Lake's) northernmost bays, you can see the top of Kroksgård's impressive main building between the treetops. Once you have passed the water and turn onto the farm, a historic environment extends before your eyes. Here, the parish's oldest preserved residential building, dating from 1738, stands on the crest looking out over the surrounding farmland and one of Sweden's longest rivers.
Culturally valuable Kroksgård has been cared for in a careful way over the centuries, being restored with great competence and knowledge by previous owners. The residence has a living area of 2 411 square-feet, and the world you step into through the front door is one of a kind. Renovations have been carried out in an antique correct manner where several layers of wallpaper have been correctly removed and floors have been restored to their original form. The fixtures that have been added to the farm fit in with the time period and the collection is extraordinarily unique. The previous owners have, since 1957, collected utility items that depict a long period of the region's history. All inventory, containing both a high cultural-historical and economic value, is included in the purchase.
The current owners have continued where the previous left off and resumed the renovation and restoration with a careful hand. The house has been extended to its current harmonious symmetrical shape. During the extension, materials were carefully chosen thus preserving the original feeling of the house. In order to update Kroksgård to modern standards, among other things, electricity has been added as well as installation of geothermal heating, a well-equipped kitchen and two fully tiled bathrooms on each floor, one of which has a washing machine and tumble dryer.
Next to the main building is a single cabin combined with a loft cabin, framing the courtyard in the best possible way. The building is prepared for water and sewage connection, in case the new owner wishes to provide Kroksgård with a separate guest accommodation. A barn, wooden storehouse and privy can be found further down the plot and finally there are two charming smoke sauna houses. One of these has been equipped with a sauna and shower, while the remaining buildings provide excellent storage.
The total plot area is approximately 10 200 square-feet. Additionally, the land behind the house, down to the water, of approximately 7 500 square-feet is currently being leased but with possible opportunities for acquisition in the future. There is also an easement to have a jetty and the right of way to it. The buildings on the leased land have been acquired and are included in the purchase.
A warmhearted welcome to this rare 18th-century treasure just under 12 miles from Östersund and about 50 miles from the famous ski resort Åre!
