The story of the house and more about us
It began in 1785 …
When the miller Jørgen Pedersen built his new home for his family – for that time it was a very big house. It was built on a difficult underground of clay and a sloping hill that gave space under the house for a big cellar and an extension with a brewery and a bakery. The bakery was torn down, but the rest of the house is standing solid and strong though it has existed for 232 years.
A small road, Tingstedvej, goes through the property. In the old days it was the main road to Sønderborg. Now it is a sleepy road, which only has very little traffic up to the mill. The main traffic to Sønderborg passes the house on the other side on Nordborgvej.
The house is full of the charm of the good old days and there are many details with a lot of history. I will welcome you in the hall on a floor with original tiles. The old interior, the big old doors, and the walls with their crocked angles catch your eye when you enter the house.
The restoration of the house was done with respect for all details and I only used organic and sustainable building materials in the process. I am very willing to tell you about the building process.
