TURN-OF-THE-CENTURY DUPLEX APARTMENT IN LYSEKIL WITH TWO BALCONIES
“NEAR A QUIET PRIVATE PARK IN THE HEART OF LYSEKIL OLD TOWN, A LIMITED NUMBER OF APARTMENTS HAVE BEEN CREATED THAT HAVE THE FEELING OF A PRIVATE HOUSE, WHILST ALL THAT THE CITY HAS TO OFFER IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER”
In 1907, when this five-storey building at Stora Kyrkogatan 6 in the Gamlestan area was completed, it was viewed as a “small palace”.
At the request of Real Bostäder, Karin Wingårdh has now restored that magnificence of this building by utilizing its original qualities, and with the help of other photographs from the Bohuslän County Museum, realizing her ambition to create contemporary homes with modern inspiration and volume. The result is 11 spacious ”house apartments” (apartments that resemble private homes), three of which are duplexes that offer a view of the roofs of the city and the sea at Norra Hamnen (North Harbour).
“THESE SPACIOUS HOUSE APARTMENTS STRIKE A BALANCE BETWEEN MAGNIFICENT HISTORICAL FEATURES, SUCH AS STUCCO DECORATIONS, EXQUISITE CARPENTRY AND HIGH CEILINGS, AND MODERN TECHNOLOGY AND THE FINEST MATERIALS”
These house apartments are characterized by a small number of large rooms with custom solutions that join modern architecture and the elegance of the past to create the basis for a great quality of life. This duplex apartment offers a view of the greenery of the property and its peaceful surroundings. Every room has a solid wood parquet floor and subfloor heating. There are high ceilings, crowned by elegant ceiling rosettes and functioning tiled stoves. The wainscoting and ceiling rosettes give these rooms a distinct style. The kitchen has large working areas and striking contrasts. The ornamental, historical features of the early 20th century act as a frame that is filled with modern conveniences. The lower level has two bedrooms, as well as an elegantly simple bathroom with a laundry room and a separate shower. This level also has a balcony that is accessed from the living room.
The most spectacular features of the loft level are its balcony and the large skylights that can open to form an additional balcony. This level works beautifully as a bedroom, as it has both a walk-in-closet and a bathroom.
“ENJOY THE UNEMCUMBERED VIEW FROM THESE DUPLEX APARTMENTS THAT SWEEPS ACROSS THE ROOFS OF THE CITY AND CONTINUES ALL THE WAY TO THE NORTH HARBOUR AREA AND THE SEA.”
The courtyard, hidden behind a high fence and lush green bushes, includes 11 private gardens. These are unique assets in the midst of the solid stone of the surrounding buildings, and create a distinctively calm and intimate atmosphere. The gardens are specially planned based on the location and nature of the site. They are framed by Bohus granite and divided by topiary hedges. The resulting gardens are green and lovely all year long, and create a sense of privacy.
Each of these 11 planned gardens has room for its owner’s outdoor furniture, grill and more. They have been planned by a landscape architect based on the vision of private spaces and a garden plot that would belong to each apartment.
The courtyard area also has a private garage and parking spaces. The purchaser can choose amongst the spaces that have not yet been claimed.
