We are selling our mother's beautiful little smallholding with a variety of possibilities for the creative and handy people. It is located in the old-fashion village Långserum with only 5 households in the forest abundant region of Östergötland, with two lakes on comfortable walking distance. Nearest town is Åtvidaberg, 25 km away and 50 km from Linköping.
Here could be the place for fulfilling your dreams and being able to have an outcome from your activities. The many buildings give opportunities to run a business such as a carpentry, workshop for ceramic, wool or cars, a food processing industry or to have a summercafé with exhibitions and music evenings, or to hold small animals, as goats, sheep and chicken. The surroundings invite to Ecotourism (there is a long regional track crossing the village and its forests), rural tourism, outdoor pedagogy, Permaculture and an organic vegetable garden. The property itself has small areas of different kinds of land: forest, pasture, cultivation and leaftrees for pruming in order to breed goats e.g., all spread out on the 17000 square meters.
In the early 90s there was a smallscale well-succeeded tourism experience in the village where they had a café, workshops in cheesecake production and outdoor activities.
You can certainly also have it only for the purpose of living in a peaceful place, working from home, or working with arts e.g.
Besides the cosy typical Swedish red and white painted cottage, the place has nine more different outbuildings such as a barn for animals, a chicken house, a woodshed, two good root cellars, a barn for bigger machines, a workshop full of tools, and some other sheds from the 18th century. Many of them need repair and handy peoples' loving care and time! Some of them need repair very soon.
The vegetable garden has fixed beds which have been planted with mulching growing techniques for many years, there is also a beautiful cultivation bed in the shape of an alveole.
The house has two floors, and is divided in two parts, a secular one and a new-build part from 2011, with a nice bright working room on the first floor, and the dining room on the groundfloor.
You can heat the house either with wood or electricity. There is also a good wood stove in the kitchen and a beautiful tile stove in the living room.
If you love taking care of buildings which have an importance for the cultural heritage, longing for breeding small animals or for having your own organic vegetable garden, in a natural forested surrounding, this is the suitable place for you.
