It's that time of the week again... The Local's Property of this week is a quaint country house in southern Sweden, situated beside a lazy river Ronneby. Check it out.
Imagine seven rooms, that's three bedrooms, a living area of 153 square metres, and a garden that measures over 1,000 metres squared. All quite literally on the riverside.
Well, you don't need to imagine any more, the pictures are right here
as part of The Local's Property of the Week. And you could even own it yourself if you have a spare 6.55 million kronor ($1 million) (or nearest offer).
