We just can't help it. We keep coming back to Sweden, again and again, to sample some of the local listings, which are usually among the most stylish and best photographed we've ever come across. That's not to say the Scandinavians are faultless—like the listing agent who hyped up a house using a 13th-century skeleton—but here are five new listings that show Stockholm's best side. Kicking things off is a dashing white-on-white number asking $2.1M in the heart of the Strand. The 1,700-square-foot flat boasts soaring ceilings, a spacious kitchen with Gaggenau appliances, and four bedrooms.
? On offer for $1.6M, this yet-to-be-completed condominium occupies the top floor of a historic building in the gentrifying Sodermalm district. The building might be old, but the interiors are hyper modern, with a cantilevered, frameless glass staircase, sleek kitchen, and sparse furnishings.
? Located in posh Ostermalm, this giant penthouse retains a bohemian look that belies its high price tag. The $4.36M duplex has plenty of headroom—with 18-foot ceilings—and several outdoor spaces. The tile floors are a little disappointing, but the exposed wood beams offer a welcome dash of character.
? Though not nearly the size of some of the previous offerings, this 1,000-square-foot flat still possesses the sort of modern/classic mix we love in Stockholm. At $1.3M, it's not exactly cheap, but with a sleek kitchen, glassed-in fireplace, and exposed wood supports, it's quite the pied-a-terre.
? For $1.43M, this particular Stockholm spread offers an old world alternative to the modernist standard and at 2,000 square feet, is considerably more apartment for the money.
