Scroll down and see the history of the house

Picture below: Lustgården 1917.
The large house was built by the artist Elis Åslund in the early 20th century. Elis sold the farm in 1917 and he moved with his family to Djursholm himself, which may have been due to the fact that he more and more switched to earning a living as a portrait painter. Pensionat Lustgården was then started in the yard by the new owners, who we unfortunately do not know much about other than that the cellar master was called Hjort Olle. The picture below is from an advertisement where the farm was advertised under the heading "Landtställe". The photo in the ad shows the waterline far higher up than it is today, which can be explained by the extremely strong spring river 1917. as well as a canoe that can be rented.
