Beautiful apartment for rent in one of the nicest areas of central Oslo--Grunerløkka. Quiet, yet near restaurants, entertainment, river, parks, transportation, and all institutions of higher learning

A beautiful one bedroom apartment in a four-floor late 19th century building with a lovely courtyard in the Grunerløkka area of Oslo. The apartment faces a one way street with almost no through traffic, so it is very quiet. You are in the centre of one of the most vibrant areas of central Oslo; as such, you are within a short walking distance to Birkelunden Park, many restaurants, grocery stores, cafes, transportation, and the lovely Aker river where you can walk, run or dine at the Mathallen food hall. There is a a large grocery store and cinema within a five minute walk from the apartment.

The apartment is located 10 minutes by foot from the Oslo National Academy of the Arts (KHIO)/The Oslo School of Architecture and Design (AHO). It is also close to all the major business schools, and the University of Oslo, which is 30 minutes by public transportation or 18 minutes by bike.

The apartment has beautiful wood floors, high ceilings, and mouldings. I had this apartment renovated in summer 2017 before I moved in. Of course there is high speed wireless internet and cable. Although not a large apartment, everyone who visits says it feels much bigger than its 600 square feet size.

Kitchen: The kitchen and living room are open concept. The kitchen has wooden counter tops, stove (Miele), dishwasher, and fridge. All appliances are less than three years old. A large modern table separates the kitchen from the living room, and it is perfect for eating or working.

Living Room: Bright and airy space with three windows looking out onto the quiet street. Comfortable sofa, marble coffee table, bookshelves, console/desk, and large Sony television. Nicely decorated.

Bathroom: Shower, heated floors, washer. Modern Looking with a window that opens out onto the back courtyard.

Bedroom: The bedroom faces the back courtyard. It is spacious and includes a queen bed and a large wardrobe. There is a lovely balcony off of the bedroom that looks out over the courtyard. It is a wonderful place to sit, relax and have breakfast, coffee, or dinner.
