A Log Cabin For Peace, Quiet And Solitude By A Lake In Sweden. - Real Estate - By Owner

⭕ A unique spot in de middle of Sweden, nearby Normark in Värmland. Now for sale: Fribotorpet, more than 6 hectors of woodland with two houses on it. 
The property
The property is on 6 hectares of woodland with a part of it bordering a medium sized lake, so you have your own private access to the water.
Fribosjön Lake is one of the many pristine freshwater lakes and waterways that make Värmland the most beautiful Nature-vacationing province of Sweden.There are clear spaces around both the houses and as for the woodland, there is value in the trees. It contains pine and birch. 
Main House
The main house is a Finish log cabin kit, built directly onto the rock, so it is very solid! The house has its own well and there is hot and cold water to the kitchen and bathroom. The kitchen and sitting room is all one room with a soapstone fireplace in the sitting area. There are three bedrooms one with a loft sleeping area and the third accessed from outside. The bathroom has a shower and composting toilet. 
Definitely, a cosy house with efficient oil filled electrical heaters. In the winter with a meter of snow outside it is a pleasure to sit within and enjoy the silence, solitude and stillness without.
Second cabin
The other cabin is much older and was moved to Fribo in the 60s. There is electricity but no running water. There is a kitchen area and a sitting area with a bed in one corner. The third room is at present a workshop and storage area, although it is easily possible to convert this into a separate bedroom and small bathroom should you wish to bring water from the well.
Shed and other storage
There is also a medium sized shed behind the cabin which has a workbench and storage, an outside bucket composting loo and an additional part for more storage, lawn mowers etc. 
Beneath the house is a cellar for storage.
The wonder of Fribo 
For my part I believe Fribo to be a rather special place... and Im not saying that to make a sale. The energy is one of peace, quiet and a place of solitude.
I purchased the property with the idea of renting out one of the cabins for holiday rentals, which has worked to some extent but not sufficiently to make any sort of income. I have enjoyed a couple of winters here and the peacefulness was a boon to my soul. The time has come to consolidate Fribo and move on.
This very small village is right in the woods between Filipstad en Lesjoförs. Its beside the beautiful lake Fribosjön. You arrive along a single track road and realise you are the last of just a few summer houses. As you step out of the car the peace and tranquility, even the trees embrace you.
If you are looking for peace and quiet and a feeling of being away from it all, this really is the place to explore. With only half a dozen holiday homes in the area, all private and only occupied occasionally, you will find peace.
