The Woodhouse in the fishing village of Agger on the northwestern coast of Jutland is located less than a kilometre from the North Sea, on a property with mature trees and plenty of natural vegetation. This surrounding woods played a significant role in the design of the house. In fact, its large window fronts almost invite the trees inside. The terrace offers sheltered seating with beautiful views across the lawn and through the forest.
The Woodhouse consists of a main house, an outbuilding, and a terrace that connects the two buildings. The main house features an open living area with a fireplace, kitchen and dining area that opens out to nature on two sides through windows that extend up to the gables. On the eastern side of the main building you will find a bathroom as well as the master bedroom complete with its own almost five-metre high window front and views out into the surrounding woodlands. The covered terrace leads from the living area to the west-facing outbuilding. Here there is another bathroom and two bedrooms with double beds. One of the bedrooms features a loft with two additional beds for children.
