unique högasten on skånes south coast
the property högasten is located just west of ystad with an extensive shoreline. the mangård building is surrounded by a beautiful park and impressive avenues. two more detached homes are on the land in the form of an old school and a detached farm, both with captivating sea views just like from högasten.
högasten, nestled along the south coast, boasts a 1 km shoreline with sandy beaches and rocky outcrops, all gazing upon the deep blue baltic sea and picturesque meadows. the estate, part of charlottenlund since the early 1900s, includes a main building erected in 1914. the family has lovingly maintained and improved the property, creating a courtyard alongside beautiful lime tree-lined avenues. to the south, open spaces overlook the sea, while to the west, a magical versailles-inspired park garden features geometrically designed, rarely seen plant arrangements.
the entrance leads to a central hall connecting to the living room, library, and upper floors. high ceilings and exquisite stone flooring imbue the space with grandeur. the living room offers multiple seating areas and a cozy tile stove. large windows frame courtyard views, while the south side opens up to uninterrupted sea vistas. double doors usher you into the tastefully appointed library, with its floor-to-ceiling bookshelves. this space seamlessly connects to the garden and the öland stone-covered outdoor terrace. further in, a sitting room with a grand fireplace adjoins a spacious dining area. the entrance level is completed by a kitchen and mudroom. upstairs, a private sitting room, four bedrooms, and a bathroom await.
three wings surround the courtyard: a spacious stable wing, a smaller pigsty wing, and a substantial log wing. the latter now houses a furnished event space, a bathroom, and two guest rooms. in the same building, you′ll find a larger barn, ideal for events or practical use, such as a machinery shed.
west of the estate, a meticulously planned park garden not only enhances the property′s beauty but also serves as a windbreak. a large gazebo, reminiscent of kongens have in copenhagen, graces the northern part, with symmetrical plantings extending southward. adjacent is a fruit garden featuring rhubarb, cherries, plums, and more.
forest and hunting:
northward, the lyckan forest, spanning 7 hectares, encircles a natural pond with oak and beech trees. the beech forest was rejuvenated in 1998 and is well-maintained. during skåne′s autumn, duck hunting occurs by the pond, where three gazebos provide ideal shooting spots. pheasants, hares, and roe deer can also be hunted on the property.
högasten comprises seven parcels of excellent agricultural land. an 1861-built school building, charming with its brick facade, serves as a residence with four rooms, a kitchen, and a recently renovated bathroom. it features a south-facing garden with delightful field and sea views. another dwelling takes the form of a skåne farm, boasting approximately 110 sqm of space with stables and storage. the buildings create a u-shaped layout, opening up to breathtaking baltic sea vistas.
in summary, this is a rare opportunity to acquire an agricultural property with multiple residences and 75 hectares of prime land in one of the country′s most coveted locations. the land quality is exceptional, primarily classified as class 8.
