A duplex house in west Iceland, right by the sea, with a magnificent view over the fjord, from the backyard

My house is a wooden duplex house in a very small village in west Iceland. It is about 130 sqm and has a garden with a magnificent view over the fjord. It has an open kitchen into the living room, one bathroom, 3 bedrooms, laundry room and a garage that can be used as a bedroom. From this village, it is easy to take day trips to all directions and one could manage to see a big part of the country by just taking day trips from there. Dalasýsla region has many historical places and the people is proud of their heritage that we can trace to the Norwegian Vikings and an Irish princess.The past is hidden in every corner, place names and farm names. The surroundings also have many of the most beautiful places in Iceland where one can really enjoy the nature.
