The characteristic turn of the century houses lining the Upper Row Road, one of those hilly small alleys in the heart of Marstrand. Up here in the hillside, it looks as if someone lifted the little houses and let them pell-mell at different heights. Now is the neatly placed among the rocks and almost seems to protect each other against the Western wind. With an eye you can follow all the houses' rooftops that winds all the way down to the harbor. Picturesque is an understatement.

Upper Row Road is a quiet dead end street, at the very foot of the city's mighty fortress. At number four, this charming turn of the century with all the typical, exterior parts in place. The green, beautifully broken, metal roof. The fastidious carpenter's joy. And the windows with småspröjsade headpieces. The house was originally built in the late 1800s and has undergone extensive renovation, conversion and extension, with great respect for the original building style. Decorations and color selection in the interior is carefully selected to match the building's age and character.

Inside the house meets the time-faithful turn of the century the details of our time convenience. It is clean, bright lines - friendly materials and a well-executed traditional crafts. The clever floor plan almost succeeds stretch of 100 square meters - not least thanks to the airiness and the practical.

The house has been consistently beautiful floors - massive oak floors, oak parquet flooring, tiled or wooden flooring nåtat. Wallpaper in combination with painted paneling evokes a rustic but light feeling. The many windows allow natural light to cross the rooms and create space and openness.

The real trick is the creation of a genuine farm environment on the building's sloping rear. A guest house built in the modern era, flanked by two sheds, together with the main house a protected environment in several different floors. Rock that comes in day meets wood, stone paving, stairs, stone walls, paths, grass and plants. Old meets new materials in a rare harmonious combination. The result is a serene, secluded and lush place with strong atmosphere - right on the island of Marstrand.

Here on the farm stillnar all when dusk falls. From the tall wooden deck opens to views of the ocean and Albrektssunds channel. Copper and brick ceilings of the slope down to the harbor is colored red in the evening sun. In the distance you hear the sound of a single inboard engines, the smell of burning charcoal mixed with a breath of lilac and freshly cut grass.

Will it be too harmonious and peaceful, just stroll down the winding hill a few minutes. There awaits street life, restaurants, cafes and shops. Equally short way is to sun-warmed rocks, salt baths or activities such as water and boating. Marstrand is sailing, what Bastad is for tennis. You are never far from the hardwood beds and scenic hiking trails.

Room Descriptions
The house is well located with total privacy, the height of the street. Follow the stone stairs and enter through the classic, white träplanket. Inner courtyard and private restful atmosphere meets up with its different floors.

The house's entrance is the beautiful veranda which gets light from the many småspröjsade glass sections in the time-faithful style and provides good storage and clothes hanging. On the hall floor rests sober clinker. Right after the hall is a guest toilet in the nautical style. It almost reminds you of a caboose with its mahogany walls, netted wooden floors and brass fittings.

To the left of the hall you enter the kitchen and straight ahead opens up the living room. A beautiful windows and oak parquet floor create atmosphere combined with the room's clean, pure lines.

The living room is in the file and semi open-plan dining room. The rooms partitioned by a slight arch in the Art Nouveau style, with white woodwork as elegant followed up by the dining room's chest panel and ceiling in white painted paneling. A corner of the dining room are covered with bricks. Here birch wood fire crackling in the iron stove, when the autumn rain beats against the windows. The dining room has space for everything from parties and dinners with many around the table, to the family's long Saturday breakfasts, board games or nightly conversations.

A similar vault opens up from the dining room to the kitchen. The large window above the sink looks out onto the courtyard. Farm terraced vegetation forms a beautiful green wall, which makes hand disk slightly more bearable. The kitchen from Kvänum is a place built with period, cream-colored furnishings and countertops made of wood. It is wise planned with ample storage and good workspaces for several amateur chefs. The equipment consists of fridge, freezer, dishwasher, stove, convection oven and microwave. The big and tall pantry underlines the strong turn of the century feel. The round kabyssfönstret brass addresses the marine surroundings.

Back in the hall turning the lavish teak stairs to the second floor. Up here meets a lovely light through skylights and low, krysspröjsade window. Up here there are views of the harbor, the sea and the city even more striking. The small hall accommodates a workplace or a comfortable reading area.

The impression of the house's large Master Bedroom is dominated by exciting roof valleys and beautiful windows. They provide open views of Marstrand's rooftops, Klåverön and sea inlets from Albrektsundskanalen. On the horizon, turning blue archipelago's rocks and cliffs. The room is light and characterized by sky and sea. Set the balcony door ajar - at night falling asleep to the scents and sounds from the sea, on the morning wakes you up the blackbird singing.

The day's first cup of coffee takes you to the generous balcony in south / east position. The view is outstanding. Ventilate the bed clothes on the galvanized wrought iron railing.

Upper floor second bedroom is slightly smaller and ideal as children or study. Through the low windows, you can also see here the sea glisten.

Also in this house's tiled bathrooms that runs entirely in white, with touches of teak. It is equipped with massage bath, washbasin with washstand, locker and toilet. The bathroom has a comfortable floor heating for those chilly mornings. A blasted windows provide light but protect from view.

Your overnight guests - or the older children - can be their own in the fully equipped guest house. A wise plan has succeeded in combining living room, kitchen, dining room and loft in a bright environment that is open up to the ridge.

On the wooden deck outside is barbecue evenings and talks happily long. The lights on the other side of the canal glitters catch up with the stars. When the night sky slowly turns to dawn have your overnight guests only steps in to their beds.

Overall, this well-kept centenary building just as rich in tradition as a modern accommodation in one of Sweden's most prominent summer towns - with given opportunities to lead active lives by the sea.

A very practical space, the basement is accessed via a separate entrance from the building's short side. There is storage space and room for laundry. Extra good when you can hang up their washing on a rainy day or when hands should panned after a day påtande in the soil.

The basement space can of course be developed further, depending on how the new owners look at their needs.

Completely renovated, century-old house is completely lacking in transparency with the city sloping buildings underneath. Marstrand entertainment and dining scene is just a minute away, but the completely protected and lush courtyard resting peace. Welcome.
