The home has an amazing wood-panelled interior along with a spacious open plan living room and kitchen, while large windows offer picturesque views across the landscape. 

The island, which is being sold by broker Erik Steen with Aktiv Eiendomsmegling Asker og Bærum in Norway and listed on Jamesedition.com and the Vladi Private Islands websites, is just a short distance by boat to the nearest towns of Lyngør, Risør and Arendal, which all have multiple shops and very good restaurants.

Erik Steen says: ‘The building is thoughtfully planned by the architect to exploit the full use of the sunlight that flows into the rooms from the first ray in the morning until the last ray of the evening, and also to blend in to the landscape almost without being visible from the sea.

‘The layout is also well planned, with a large reception area (hall) leading up a few steps to an incredible living room with fantastic views.
