Typical South-Swedish Cottages

In the south part of Sweden there are typical houses called “Skånelänga”. A Skånelänga is built on a half-timber and brick frame, and has plastered (white) facade with visible half-timber. Let me show you an example, currently for sale with the agent Uppvik & döttrar. This first one is called “Knäbäckshusen”:


It is simple, cosy and southern Sweden-rustic: Country-Danish within the Swedish and Scandinavian style borders. Interiors below.



Now, look inside for another sweet Swedish ‘Country Danish’ SkånelängaThis house, “Lilla Beddinge”, was built in the late 18th century.
