Cozy apartement in Stockholm, close to everything

WE WILL NOT BE DOING AN EXCHANGE IN THE SUMMER OF 2018!


OUR HOME
Our apartment is a modern two bedroom apartment (93m²) in what used to be the classrooms of a refurbished school. It has a nice open space living room/ kitchen with high ceilings (3m) and a lot of light. There are 2 bedrooms, one with a double bed and another with two adult size beds (one is on a loft). We also have extra beds and often use one of the two large halls for extra guest.

The big balcony faces south and overlooks the old school court yard which is now a play- and recreation area with several barbeques and a lot of edible herbs and plants. It is perfect for a family with one or two kids or a couple that wants a quiet place close to the both the city and the swedish nature.

The apartment is well equipped and has good wifi, two Apple TVs, washing-machine and tumbler, dishwasher and coffe-machine.

CLOSE TO THE CITY
Hammarbyhöjden is a quiet oasis just a short bike or metro ride from Stockholm city.

The metro is just a three minute walk from the apartment and will take you to the city center in just 10 minutes. They go all the time. The bustling atmosphere of Södermalm is even closer and a short bike ride will take you to the heart in 15 minutes or 6-7 min by subway.

LOTS OF GREEN AREAS
There are plenty of playgrounds in the neighbourhood and a summer open pool area within walking distance (4-500m). There is one toddler pool and a regular sized pool that is shallow enough for young swimmers.

Nacka nature reserve is a large recreation area which you can enter just 700 meters from our home. The forest is great for walking, running or just taking your bike and going for a swim in one of the lakes. We have a couple of bikes with children seats, helmets and a kids bikes. You'll find lakes for swimming within walking/biking distances.

In the "Globe area" which is just a 15min walk from the house you'll find an entertainment centre with restaurants, bars, bowling, arcade games and tons of other activities.
