wishful wednesday [österlen]

by kmcopeland

The Swede’s stepdad’s band is recording a new jazz album, and since the Swede is their photographer for this project, we went to the recording studio to take some pictures. The studio was in this guy’s (actually a famous Swedish sound technician named Ola …) old house in Kivik, a small town on the east coast of southern Sweden. He and his wife have bought this old run down schoolhouse and are slowly fixing it back up. Sadly, we didn’t get any pictures of the place because we were in a big hurry and only had time to photograph the band.  What we did get, however, was a serious case of the “we need to buy an old house in the country and fix it up” bug. Because we have just bought a new flat, this is obviously not something that will happen immediately. But we have both agreed that sometime down the road, that would be a lot of fun.

Until then, I will satisfy this desire by stalking villas on Hemnet. For today’s wishful Wednesday, I give you a 140 square meter villa in Hammenhög that’s being sold to the tune of 4.7 million kronor (roughly 700,000 USD). You can read more about it (in Swedish) and/or buy it here.
