Beautiful house close to forest, beach and Aarhus City.

We live in a suburb south of Aarhus, the second largest town in Denmark. Our house is 180 m2, is has two storeys with garden, terrace and balcony. Big cosy living room with an open fireplace and door to the balcony, kitchen/family room with door to the terrace and garden, 1 master bedroom also with door to the terrace and garden, 3 bedrooms/study rooms, 2 bathrooms. Beautiful and unusual architecture, exclusive furniture in Danish design.
Hoejbjerg is a central location whether you want to visit the marvellous North Sea or the Danish capital Copenhagen. As Denmark is a small country you can reach everything within a few hours. Very quiet neighbourhood. After two minutes walk you are in the forest and a sandy beach is 10 minutes away.
The area is perfect for bicycling.
Garden with many flowers and berry bushes, 2 barbecues and nice furniture. Sometimes the roes come from the forest and visit us.
Our friendly cats will no doubt keep you company both in the house and in the garden. They walk in and out a cat flap themselves and play where they want to in the garden or the forest nearby.

Most of the time we just enjoy being in our wonderful house and making long walks in the forest and by the beach nearby. We also like reading books (many!) and listening to music and in the summer we often sail with our boat in the seas not far from our house. 20 minutes from here we have a second home quite near a wonderful sandy beach.
