Lilla paradiset
Little paradise - a small farm from around 1890

The plot (2500 sqm) was bought in l892 of Mr. Ask for 125 SEK from the overall estate owner. Until the 125 SEK were paid, a yearly rate of 3 SEK was due. In 1894 the "torp" (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Torp_(architecture)) was split from the estate and in 1926 the entire original estate was split up.
1918 the widow of Mr. Ask became the owner of the torp, later their daughter.

In 1976 a family from Stockholm bought it as a summer cottage, they were then my age. For the last 10 years though the house was more or less abandoned and the garden not cared for.
The entire garden was more or less a jungle and the house has quite some need of renovation and restoration.
