The Former "Anton Pearson Home and Studio"





A sandstone (and limestone etc.) "friendly fence" tucks this house into the property 


The name "Lundagard" is set in cement. That name goes farther back than the wood carver's name. I'd like to know the history.














There are several outbuildings. This one is adorned with stained glass.


Closer


I think this outbuilding was the actual woodcarving studio.


Details




The property has been vacant long enough to become run down. We hear rumors of new owners and of plans that sound hopeful, but we shall wait and see. It is a Swedish architectural and folk art highlight. These photos only touch on the masterful complex and hint of its glory days! I imagine tomtes were kept busy and happy here in times gone by!
