10 MILLION DOLLAR HOMES ON THE MARKET

November 8, 2008

Is the owners of luxury homes feeling the financial crisis? Two properties in the high-end segment have been on the market for months, each with a price-tag of 70 Million Norwegian Kroner, not selling. A townhouse from 1884, built by architect Ove Laurentius Ekman, has  been renovated for millions in the exclusive neighborhood of Briskeby in Frogner west in Oslo. At 1,100 square meter it includes no less than 11 bathrooms, eight fireplaces, three balconies and roof-top terrace.

Another property just outside the city is the gated 1,400 square meter Halden Hovedgård (Halden Manor) (photo below, down-right corner) perched on a small hilltop on the island of Snarøya. It too has been completely renovated since the seller bought it in 2002 and the property even features a beach (painting by Kaare Espolin Johnson from 1930 at the end of the post) and a wharf by the water. There are panorama-views in all directions, but nosy neighbors have no view of the house.
