Nice family house centrally in the capital

Lovely family house that is well located in the Capital Reykjavík. Close to Perlan (museum and a cafe ) and a lovely outdoor area with an outdoor Geothermal pool within a walking distance. Our neighbourhood is quiet and friendly.

We live in a 140 fm2 house with a garage (Semi-detached townhouse) and a small garden. First floor has a bathroom, relatively small kitchen, spacious livingroom and sunroom where you can walk out to the terrace. Adventurous people are welcome to use our trampolin.

Upstairs are three bedrooms and a bathroom with a shower and a tub. One masterbedroom and three childrens rooms, in all sleeping space for 7/8 people.
We often grow greens in the summer that you are welcome to enjoy.

Our house is well located, easy to find and only few busstops away from the city center. It takes about 30 min to walk down town and 10 minutes to walk to Kringlan a shopping center. There is a bakery and a supermarket in five minutes walking distance, along with a pharmacy.
