Modern, spacious retreat close to forests and only 25 min. north of Copenhagen

Our house is located in the small suburban town of Bistrup (Birkerød), approximately 25 km north of Copenhagen. We live in a quiet area, next to forests, one of the largest lakes in Denmark (Furesøen) and it's extensive and interesting wetlands. Great walks and water activities are close at hand.

Our home sits high on the hill and offers glimses of the lake. The large covered terrace gives us a perfect and secluded outdoor entertaining. We have a barbecue you are welcome to use. There is plenty of room for kids to run around and a playhouse, swing, sand box, and a trampoline.

Supermarkets are only a short walk, or even shorter drive away. The capital of Denmark, Copenhagen, is easily accessible by car or public transport.

*Modern Museum of Denmark, Louisiana, in Humlebæk (beautiful architecture, art, garden and good with kids) * Viking Museum in Roskilde *Copenhagen (full stop! - For the food, the historical sites, the vibe, the canals, the shopping) *Kronborg (Elsinore, where Hamlet according to Shakespeare lived) ...and so much more.

In Bistrup you are always only a short walk from forests. Five minutes walk from our house you have an opportunity to hear and see a great variety of birds in the "Vaserne" wetlands. You can also go for a swim in the lake or go on a lake cruise.
