Our home

Our home ia a 200 year old farm made up of four wings - you can see more pictures and a short history here on our website http://www.ritslev.dk/private (partly in Danish).

The house has been totally remodelled and is up-todate.

The lot is 2 acres mostly grass and trees; we have a collection of rhododendrons, lots of old and modern roses and bulbs, fruit trees, grapes and berry bushes, etc.

We have 1 dog and 4 cats who will need to be taken care of. Also the grass will need molding once a week.

Our "beach front" is 110 m (330 feet) with a wide view over Roskilde Fjord. It's to the West, so one can enjoy the sunsets from the terrasse, summer as winter. Just in front of is a EU bird santuary with swans, sea gulls, eagles and many other birds, mostly seabirds.

The place is good for kids as they have lots of room to play in - the water is knee deep 100 m out - no need to worry about cars etc. As for teenagers, they might be at bit bored if they have to spend too much time in the neighborhood; however, easy access to more "exciting" places by public transportation - we are 1 hour from the city of Copenhagen.

Property features

Who we are

  1. We are in our late 50's with two sons, the youngest (18) is still living at home.

    We are both working.

    I'm a management consultant while my wife works with export. In her spare time, she runs a shop with hand picked French and Swedish house and religious objects, see our website (in Danish) http://www.ritslev.dk/kronen. She visits fleamarkets France and Sweden regularly to pick up "new" things. The shop is located in one of the wings with an own entrance from the outside retaining our privacy. It's open only during week-ends. She ships everywhere. She is also engaged in many other actitivities, church, quilting, flowers, decorating shop and home, keeping the flower garden, etc.

    My spare time is mostly busy with either remodelling the house or doing garden work.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We live in a small community of 10.000 people located in the Grater Copenhagen area.

The local shopping center is 5 min away by car and 10 by bike. It has everything you need on a daily basis.

Otherwise Roskilde is only 15 min away and we have 40 min to the city of Copenhagen and the airport.

As for good restaurants, Tivoli, nightlife, etc. then it's Copenhagen eventually Roskilde. The local restaurants and pubs closes early and are where you will meet Danes; these places are not international (although you will have no problems speaking English with anyone in this country).
