Villa Solbacken, Djurgården

Villa Solbacken

http://i133.photobucket.com/albums/q.../solbacken.jpg

Villa Solbacken is currently the private residence of Princess Lilian, located in the Djurgården.
The Villa will transfer to Prince Carl Philip upon the death of the Princess, who has the right to use the Villa for the duration of her life.

As I noted in earlier posts, Villa Solbacken is the home of Princess Lilian.

Princess Lilian lives at Villa Solbacken which lies on Royal Djurgården (large park like area) in Stockholm. It was a villa that Prince Bertil (her late husband) owned when they met during the war in London, and which she lived in together with him when she moved in his home after she came to Sweden (that they lived together was sort of a public secret), long before they were allowed to marry.

Gustaf von Hofsten,a former adjutant of the king, told to Svensk Damtidning that he has helped to carry some treasures and valuable things away from Villa Solbacken. He told also that there hasn't been made any decisions about a possible renovation. And no decision of who is going to move there hasn't been made either. He said that he doesn't know if Carl Philip is going to move there - and Carl Philip doesn't know it either.

According to Expressen, Villa Solbacken will be renovated and Carl Philip and Sofia will move there. The Villa has 7 rooms and a kitchen, 250 square meters.

The royal court hasn't confirmed that Carl Philip and Sofia will move to Villa Solbacken.

Svensk Damtidning writes in this week's issue that Villa Solbacken's renovation has started. According to SD Carl Philip has been very involved in planning. The kitchen needs a total renovation. And the renovation should be ready before Carl Philip's and Sofia's wedding.

Svensk Damtidning tells that "we have with our own eyes seen" how the cars of company Färemo Bygg & Produktion come and leave Villa Solbacken, so obviously they are doing the renovation. The company has made work before to Kungliga Djurgårdsförvaltningen (Royal Djurgården Trust).
Villa Solbacken has got green rating from the Stockholm City Museum, which means that the house has a high cultural value, and it is particularly valuable from historical, cultural, environmental or artistic point of view. Carl Philip can't make comprehensive changes to the house without permission.

Expressen tells that The Office of the Royal Djurgården Administration has send an application to the City Planning Office for Villa Solbacken on the island of Djurgården.
Carl Philip (and Sofia) want to redo the floor plan inside the house and even put up new balconies. The same day that the application was received all documents were classified as secret, to protect the couple and ensure their safety.

Expressen tells that the renovation of Villa Solbacken takes much more time than first thought. It will not be ready when Carl Philip and Sofia return from their honeymoon.
Prince Carl Philip is now awaiting a building permit from the City Planning Office and it can be a tough process. Royal Court Superintendent Jan Lindman confirms that this will take time:
- It is about a total interior and exterior renovation. It's very long ago something was done to the house. Such elementary things like electricity and water must be reviewed and will almost certainly be renewed. The renovation will not be completed this summer. There is so much to do, says Lindman.
When is it done?
- Impossible to say. It depends a lot on when it will be started and how it progresses. It's something you have to see along the way.
Lindman points out that it is Carl Philip, who owns the house and it has nothing to do with the court - and thus not having appanage, taxpayer money.
- No, no, this is completely private. Prince Carl Philip is the owner and it is he who pays and decides together with Sofia on the renovation. Nothing to do with the court. I'm just a contact person.
The documents Expressen has reviewed show that the prince wants to do everything from rearranging inside the house to build the balconies. Villa Solbacken is classed as a modern k-listed building, green classification. This means that Carl Philip and Sofia now have to apply for every change they want to do on and inside the house.
- The house should be converted to modern standards. It is a major functionalist building with large surfaces and it will take time, says Lindman.

I wonder why Carl Philip asked for the building permit only a couple of weeks ago. Why he didn't do that right after they got engaged last summer?

With Princess Lillian only dying in March of 2013 I can imagine there is a time for grief, and time to inventory the contents, ensure they go where Bertil and Lillian specified. To jump the gun and rush in the back with the builder while to funeral cortege is moving off out front would be insensitive and, of all the thing said about CP, insensitive didn't seem to be one of them.

There is also the unexpected when you inherit a property, especially if there has only been one occupant for a very long time. Every room would hold precious memories for the SRF, not just CP, so I imagine that there was quite a lot of natural delay. If any of you have ever had to go through the property of a deceased family member you know that every memory takes it's own time and can go off at a tangent.

Then comes the time you survey the property and know that you have a major project on your hands because simple things like electrical wiring and plumbing all hark back in time and in this case, to the 1930's and so require updating. And if the building is a "listed" building as this is, you know that you are limited in what you can do and some of the things you want to do are going to cost twice as much as any other house because you need to protect the integrity of the design.

Put simply, inheriting the property of someone you love dearly is a blessing and a curse. I'm not surprised they seem to have hardly started yet.
