For this week's 5 Dream Houses, we visit Sweden, where we're met with beautiful architecture of old and new, and a seamless mix of classical and modern. 

Our first stop is Stockholm. This building, built in the 19th century is located in Narvavägen. This high-ceiling offers features like a beautiful oriel, French doors, herringbone parquet floors and a fireplace.

This classic beauty was build in the Art Nouveau style and has been kept in pristine condition through the years. Named Villa Hildesheim, the home was designed by the architect, Ola Andersson, and the developer Johan Malmström, and has been declared a valuable building by the community preservation program.

Located on the Bay of Skälderviken and built in 1932, this water front property sits atop Arild slopes facing the bay, sporting a classical look with plenty of natural light. The three spacious storeys offer a number of luxuries and amenities, including a free-standing bath that sits in front of French doors that open up to a beautiful view of the bay.

Known as one of the most beautiful homes currently on the market in Djursholm, this villa, built in 1915, was designed by architect Karl Güettler, for the Church of Sweden. The home features many unique original details and a row of large rooms, all of which offer natural light from all the windows facing south-west. There are stone floors in medieval format, lierne vaults, coffered ceilings with murals, and elevated central sections, as well as three ornamented fireplaces and plenty of other beautiful details from the period of construction.

Our last stop is a modern piece located snug among the woods. This contemporary home looks over water and forests, sporting large, floor-to-ceiling windows to accentuate that view. Like most of the luxury homes in Sweden, modern and classical elements are present throughout the property.

Swedish architecture has a uncanny way of making classic look brand new. Its modern architecture mixes well with the historical, with old exteriors sporting modern interiors, ultimately modernizing historical buildings to meet the needs of the modern Swede.
