A Converted School House on the Swedish Island of Gotland

Summer dreaming here again on My Scandinavian Home - with a virtual trip to the beautiful Swedish island of Gotland - and a magnificent, converted school that's just come on the market (are Per's ears burning yet?)! Dating back to 1860, Frojels Annex is located in Western Gotland and made up of a series of buildings which have been lovingly restored, all the while ensuring original features such as the big stone walls, atrium and beams play a starring role. The entire place sleeps 14 - which makes it a perfect place for an extended family to gather in summertime and unwind.  No doubt there are some bikes at the ready to take on of the gravel lanes down to the Baltic for a swim, before coming home to recline on vintage furniture in one of the many outdoor social areas. A perfect summer oasis in which to relax, be together - but also be alone! 


Could you imagine spending your summers here?

I understand the bidding has already started - but if you're quick, it might not be too late to jump in! More info via Bertwig here

Have a great start to the week!

PS Thank you so much for your all your lovely comments about our new bedroom nook at the cabin (and for sharing your tips on air circulation) - it means so much. We're hoping to head up there later this week finish off some of the details. We still don't have blinds - with a 4.30am sunrise that's a little bit of a struggle!

  1. Utterly charming. I have my eyes on the botanical chart in the kitchen plus on about 100 other items. Some of the furniture choices surprised me a bit (as well as the ikat rug upstairs) because I expected more of 'shabby chic' choices but everything goes beautifully together.
    The open upstairs area is amazing and the railing!
    I would want to sleep in that little nook with the slanted ceilings and the small window, and I would not mind spending a day or two in the gazebo reading books.

  2. I see that once again, Alena and I like the same spaces. :) I'm in love with the railing and the gazebo and yes, I want the slanted roof bedroom, too! I love the hint of green in the cabinetry--it warms the space up while still giving it a neutral feel.

  3. Wow- what a beautiful space. Do you know the brand of the white pendant lamp over the kitchen table? Thanks
