The apartment is in an old wool factory building that was later turned into artist studios. Many of the studios have now been turned into apartments, this one included. Therefore the entrance and hallway are quite raw.
The river 'Varmá' runs by the house and the waterfall 'Álafoss' is in the backyard.
The area is peaceful with nice walking paths and feels quite remote although it's only 16km from Reykjavík city centre.
For those with a car, there are plenty of parking spaces.
