There’s something charming about a house that’s frozen in time, but this Swedish apartment is a reminder that nothing compares to a perfect balance of old and new. The one-bedroom home in Helsingborg, Sweden, is on the market for 6.82 million SEK (roughly $761,000), and it’s full of beautifully ornate elements that feel almost edgy next to the home’s modern features.

The home was built on the Swedish coast in 1929 with stunning period details like stained glass windows, detailed molding, wood paneling, and coffered ceilings.

Though its bones are of a different time, the house has a sleek, modern kitchen and an updated bathroom that creates a pleasing contrast with the apartment’s more baroque features. The home’s piece de resistance, though, may be its spacious patio, which looks out onto the sea towards Denmark.
