The tranquil locality of Kilafors harbours one of the most historical and spectacular mansions in Sweden’s history.
With intriguing architecture and astonishing nature, Kilafors Mansion rests as a secret ready to be discovered by its next owner.
It started back in 1725, when Swedish ironmaster Catharina Bröms bought the premises to set up an ironworks business.
A lot has happened since then, and if the beautiful walls in the mansion could speak, they would have quite a story to tell.
“The mansion has housed many famous people, including royalty such as Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel,” says Per Linell, the current mansion owner.
The building rose to fame in the ‘30s and has since welcomed stars such as Rod Stewart, Alice Cooper and Daniel Craig.
“The peculiar interior and the nature turned the mansion into a hotspot, and it became known as the grand party palace of Sweden,” Linell continues.
“It was the centre for the Formula 1 circus in the ‘60s, with stars like Ronnie Peterson and Emerson Fittipaldi, and the garage on the premises has seen some of the most luxurious cars in the world.”
The mansion also appears in many Swedish films.
The beautifully curved staircase in the main building, designed by Isaac Grünewald,
Live the dream is nowadays referred to as the film staircase.
“The interior architecture is something else,” confirms Linell.
A lake at the doorstep and hectares of garden Live the dream
A tour around the mansion makes it easy to understand why so many have fallen in love with the place.
The main building alone has a grand library, a hunting room and several lavish dining rooms.
Accompanied by a left and right wing, the mansion becomes complete with a green house,
a tennis court, a private beach house with a round wood sauna, and a helicopter platform.
With around 14 hectares of garden, including a private island and lake Bergviken just outside the door, there are plenty of activities to engage in.
“It is the perfect place for nature lovers,” says Linell. “The mansion has 500 metres of private beach,
surroundings perfect for hunting and fishing, and an 18-hole golf course just five minutes away.”
