SABYLUND ~ A SWEDISH MANOR

Two hours from Stockholm sits Sabylund, a Swedish manor surrounded by fields of barley, corn, and wheat. The elegant yet unpretentious home has been occupied since it was built in the 1780s. Upon entrance to the manor, quests are met by the beautiful Gustavian architecture and furnishings, tall windows, gilt boiserie, wood-burning fireplaces, silk damask fabrics, Louis XVI chairs, stunning portrait and landscape paintings, and time-worn antique rugs.

Owners Johan and Ingrid Lagerfelt live at the manor with their two children and the family dog. The Swedish estate has been in Johan's family since 1803, when it was purchased from the original owners. Johan is a doctor, and Ingrid manages the 2,500 acre family farm. The manor is a perfect place to entertain, and the family frequently hosts dinner parties for family and friends. ENJOY!
