About the property

2 large bedrooms. Large kitchen and living room. Garden with roof terrace.

This white brick building was erected in 1979. Since then the interior has been completely renovated, though some details remain in original. It was originally built for wheel-chair access so all passages are wide (unusual for houses from this time). You enter in the middle of the house, with a low wall separating the hallway from the kitchen. Straight ahead is the newly refurbished bathroom with a large bath tub and a separate shower. The kitchen is large and well equipped (though no microwave), with a round table that sits at least 6 people. Adjacent to the kitchen is the children's room with a full size (90x190cm) bunk bed and a 160x70cm child's bed and plenty of space (and toys!). From the kitchen you also reach the laundry room (new washing machine and dryer in 2012). Down the hall away from the kitchen is the master bedroom with a king size (180x200cm) bed. There is also a small office we will use for storage to make better room for you. You then reach the living room with up to 3,5m to the ceiling. This room has a quality (in tune) piano, a fireplace/stove, and two mattrasses on top of each other (for hanging out and/or sleeping), sitting furniture, and a quality video projector with screen and sound system. The garden is well protected and well kept, with plenty of grass to sit and run on, flowers, berries, etc. Outdoor furniture sits 7 comfortably around table and 4-6 in lounge-chairs. These chairs can preferably be carried up to the roof terrace for more air, sun and view. The property is 740 sq m in total (8000 sq feet).

There is a separate attached apartment (with long term tenants) facing the street. At this time, the tenants have the right to use the laundry room.

Fin ferieuke i Umeå

  • 5 of 5

Flott feriehus, særlig for barnefamilier. Her var det alt man trengte. Rent og pent. Fin uteplass med grill, og en flott takterrasse med sol hele dage. Rolig strøk. Koselig bakeri med kafé rett ned i gata. Kort veg til restauranter, fotballbane og friluftsområde med lekeplass.

Utleiere var veldig imøtekommende, og informerte godt om hva de hadde å tilby. Kan anbefales. Vi kommer gjerne tilbake.

Ume Älv
Car: not necessary

The house is located in Backen, the oldest part of Umeå. It is on a quiet residental street. The city center is 15 minutes away with (frequent) public transportation. The sculpture park at Umedalen ( is within 10 minutes walking distance. Approx. 100 meters from the house, towards the river Ume älv, the area turns partly rural, with beutiful fields and a large park-like cemetary. Down by the river there are no signs of the nearby city. The water is very clean and there are plenty of good places to swim. The location is ideal for a quiet beautiful local setting with easy access to Umeå city centre and all nearby attractions. There is an organic bakery around the corner (50m).
