About the property

6 rooms, large kitchen, terrace, patio and large garden adjoining the forest

60s residence close to fair/town

Welcome to an unique residence in Stockholm/Enskede which combines 60's interior design with functionality, comfort and access to nature. The spacious house has a large well equipped kitchen, 6 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, the Penthouse with separate bath and pentry, a porch and a terrace. The large property has a designed garden and space for numerous cars.

The house was built during the 50s/60s by wealthy engineer Lars Berkle who, having a passion for interior design and technical solutions, did not spare any effort to craft every detail of ”Villa Berkle”.

As the second owner of the property I have maintained this tradition fascinated by the retro style and choice of materials. The special atmosphere of Villa Berkle has been used for numerous commercial shoots as well as for the swedish motion picture Stockholm East:

Even though the property is situated in a quiet part of Stockholm with forest right out the backdoor you will easily reach by feet a well equipped supermarket, several restaurants, a bakery, a late night 7-eleven store and 2 alternative subway stations(15 min to south city Södermalm). Stockholm International Fair is nearby, 8 min by car or 10-15 min by bus.

There i several lakes nearby .

With 5 years of experience of letting my home to private- and commercial guests I am looking forward to welcome you and to do what I can to make your stay in Stockholm extra special.

Dinners and parties are ok but only for up to 15 people and with respect to neighbors.

Simply brilliant

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying here. The house was stylish, clean and comfortable with so much space. It was full of interesting details from the furnishings to the books on the shelves. There was good internet and wifi in the property. We had a party of 10 but there was so much room and it pleased everyone from the older members of our group in their 60s to the youngest toddler. The garden was a gem too and kept the children entertained for hours. Everything was in good working order, we found a handy supermarket 10 minutes away and there were good public transport links (bus stop on main route, train station) within easy distance on foot. It was quiet but we met the neighbours when we arrived and they were lovely - very welcoming and helpful. Janu was good to deal with and we would book this house for another visit without any hesitation

Algemene indruk was niet verkeerd

  • 3 of 5

Sanitair en bedden prima. Kamermeubilair was te vies. Retro is prima maar mag best wel eens schoongeschrobt worden. Tuin prima,.

Great Stay Near City Center

  • 5 of 5

We had a big group of friends staying here (8 of us). We loved the spacious living room and dining room. The fireplace was lovely. The metro is very near and it didn't take long to get to the city. There's a grocery store in walking distance. Janu, the owner, treated us well and was easy to work with. Also, the house is decorated well! The pictures are very accurate.

Welcome to a unique preserved 60th century villa in the prestigious Stureby / Enskede. It combines period features with functionality, comfort and access to nature. The house has large living areas, a well equipped kitchen, 6 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, the so-called Penthouse with separate bath and kitchenette, a balcony and a terrace. The plot is large with landscaped garden and parking for several cars.

The house built in the 50's / 60's of Engineering, Lars Berkle that, wealthy and interested in interior design and technology not saved any funds that with much care and imagination to process every single detail in "Villa Berkle '.

I like other owners of the property has been taken over this tradition, fascinated by the passage of design and material. The house's unique atmosphere has been used for several advertising films and photo shoots as well as the feature film Stockholm Östra (Mikael Persbrandt, Iben Hjejle)

The villa is situated on the stem plot of a lung impasse and vents directly to the forest.

IKA Quantum Bea with great food and household product range are within walking distance as well as subway Swedmyra and Stureby (12 min to Södermalm). For nightly purchase is a 7-Eleven on the main road and on nearby Parish Plan is access to restaurants and bakeries.

Stockholm International Fairs can be reached by car (8 min) and municipal (10-15 minutes). There div bathing in the surroundings.

With 5 years of highly successful experience in hosting private and corporate guests, I look forward to brighten your stay in Stockholm.
