Welcome to Villa Fredbo!
The old historic house Villa Fredbo, (which means "peaceful living") is located at the west side of Nesodden, a peninsula in the inner Oslo fjord. Summertime with sun from morning almost to midnight.
With nice view to the fjord and pond, as well as a private koi pond, in front of the house.
Villa Fredbo is approximately 300 sqm built in 1875, the garden is 4-5000 sqm.
It can serve as a place to spend relaxing days, or as the base for outings to Oslo, Drøbak, Tusenfryd amusement park, or the Oscarsborg fortress.
The house and the garden have been pictured in a variety of interior magazines and newspapers worldwide during the last 10 years.
The surroundings are beautiful and relaxing. Go for a walk in the forest behind the house, or enjoy a swim in the pond in the forest with so clean water.
Relaxing, beautiful garden with room for private escapes.
In one part of the garden there is a trampoline and a playground slide for kids.
During winter, usually with a lot of snow, you will find groomed trails for cross-country skiing crisscrossing the entire peninsula. There is also a small family slalom slope close by (Brattbakken - Nesodden Alpinanlegg).

Elsker å skape og utvikle bærekraftige konsepter. men også å finne balanse og ro i arbeidet og i livet generelt.
Jeg ønsker å bidra med noe ovenfor mine medmennesker.
Jeg har tre sønner, Emil (1989), Oliam Cornelius (2004) som ble født ute under morelltreet i hagen, Agaton Sofus (2007) som også ble født hjemme på Fredbo.
Driver firmaet Helt Grønn Design,
Noe av det mest inspirerende jeg kan jobbe med er rom-opplevelser, enten det er interiør, hage eller annet. Jeg søker å å skape små oaser som bringer fred, ro, harmoni og balanse. Dette åpner for livsglede og livskraft, og evne til å skape, eller ro til å bare være.
Vi lever i en hverdag der vi ofte blir utsatt for mye stress. Som en motsats til dette betyr det mye å kunne tilby mennesker, både store og kanskje minst like viktig barna, omgivelser der man kan finne nettopp fred, ro, harmoni, balanse, sanseopplevelser, et sted å hvile, glede eller inspirasjon.
