In idyllic Skovshoved, north of Copenhagen, we found this authentic detached house from the 1950’s. High above the coastline and with a view of Øresund, across the old thatched roofed fisherman's cottages. Yvette and Jakob Roepstorff bought the house at the height of the market, just before the crisis set in and put a halt to their renovation plans. However, looking back, this turned out to be a blessing in disguise. “We have realised that the original design suits us perfectly.”
