This Is What An $830K Apartment Looks Like In Sweden
It’s no secret that Toronto real estate has gone up in price over the last couple of years, with condos costing up to (and often over) $1 million. To compare Canada’s market to another northern nation with style, we took a peek at what Sweden has to offer.
Housed in a turn-of-the-century building, this bright two-bedroom apartment in Gothenburg, Sweden, is every bit as dreamy as the city itself. At just over 1,000 square feet, it costs 5,300,000 krona (or $829,232 Canadian dollars). Click through to tour the space, and let us know — would you trade your Canadian abode for this charming apartment across the pond?
The building was built in 1902, and is bordered by a small lawn.
A pair of double wooden doors welcomes you into the lobby of the building.
Two poster windows let natural light into the spacious living room, which has been lightly furnished with contemporary pieces. Whitewashed tiles in a herringbone pattern cover the floors, while walls are painted a light shade of grey.
An enchanting mural is undoubtedly the conversation piece in this space.
The bright, all-white kitchen boasts tons of counter space and storage, as well as stainless steel appliances.
Unlike most Toronto condos, this kitchen is large enough for a dining table that can seat six to eight people.
Just off the kitchen is a balcony that faces the inner courtyard, offering the perfect spot to dine al fresco during the summer months.
House & Home‘s color of the year, camel, is a popular pick abroad as well. Here, the master bedroom is enveloped in the luscious shade.
An antique desk and a crystal chandelier overhead adds European charm to the space.
The master bedroom also features a spacious dressing room with a wall made up of five closets.
A closet devoted to just coats is a dreamy feature!
In the bathroom, a tiled bathtub comes equipped with a rain shower head.
A washer and dryer are neatly stacked in a little nook in the bathroom.
The second bedroom is a lot smaller, fitting a twin or double bed, but could also be used as an office space.
