Ever dreamt of moving into one of those beautiful wooden homes with corrugated metal siding in downtown Reykjavík? Well, if you have a cool 65.9 million króna burning a hole in your pocket, you should make a move right now! A one bedroom apartment on Kárastígur street, near Hallgrímskirkja church, is up for sale. Prospective buyers are invited to an open house today, July 3, between 17:00 and 17:30.

The apartment, which includes the second floor and attic of a wooden house built in 1921, has one master bedroom, a large studio/den with a sleeping area, a living room, a bedroom and a bath. The attic has been furnished as a large studio and a bedroom with a large balcony. The yard has a large shed, which can be furnished as a small living space. 

According to the listing the approved size of the apartment is 85 square meters (914 sq ft), but the real floor space is much greater, as only a fraction of the floor space of the attic is included in the total, due to the low ceiling height.
