Dat schwatte Hus bi SPO

Dat schwatte Hus is situated directly on a nature reserve on the Eiderstedt peninsula, not far from the popular seaside village of Sankt Peter Ording, with wide views over meadows and fields.
The old structure of this enormous house dating to the 1960s and its three later extensions have been converted into a holiday house in a modern Scandinavian style. The black wooden cladding allows the individual sections of the building to merge and creates a homogeneous overall ensemble. The minimalist design now lends the building an almost sculptural appearance and the house loves to play with contrasts: while dark wood dominates on the outside, the interiors are rendered in light shades of white and grey. Room-high windows and doors flood its rooms with plenty of light and accentuate the broad spatial continuum. The natural incidence of light through the filigree glass facades is reflected by the light oak parquet and bathes the entire house in a warm, friendly atmosphere.
The vestibule leads to the open corridor, where large window areas at both ends create visual axes into the expanse of nature outside. Adjacent to the entrance hall, in the southern part of the house, is the fully glazed living space with a dining area and kitchen. Facing north-east there are three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
If you want to step out into the garden, you can choose from one of 10 (!) terrace doors. The large south-facing terrace with an outside shower offers wonderful views. Children can play football or just chill in the large garden. On the 1600m2 large property there is a parking lot for several cars as well as a bicycle shed. There is nothing to stand in the way of holiday happiness in Schwatten Hus!

New since summer 2021: Guests can additionally book a detached studio with a small kitchen and bathroom with infrared sauna. In the new studio there are two more sleeping possibilities, so that a total of 8 guests can enjoy the view of the endless fields with plenty of space in the Schwatten Haus bi SPO. The studio is not rented to other guests, but is an option for guests of the main house.

What to do

You can reach the 12 km long sandy beach by car in less than 5 minutes. It’s perfect for kite-surfers. There is a public golf club right next to the house. St Peter-Ording village with its restaurants and shopping facilities is only a few minutes away.

Why we like this house

A harmonious transformation of an old North Sea house into a modern, minimalist refuge that brings a lot of light and nature into the house and offers its guests plenty of space and freedom of movement!

  2. Ein Traumhaus mit viel Liebe zum Detail, fantastischem Ausblick und entspanntem Flair. Hell und luftig. Minimalistisch und doch gemütlich. MIt Blick auf die endlosen Felder und Wiesen aufwachen und auf der Sonnenterrasse einen Espresso trinken. Dann eine kurze Fahrt zum Meer und ein Lauf am endlosen Strand. So kann der Tag beginnen, der mit BBQ und einem guten Glas Wein zu Ende geht. Wir haben die Zeit im “Schwatten Huus” sehr genossen! Danke!
