ABBA’s ‘songwriting cottage’ is up for sale
The summer cottage where Benny and Björn worked on hits such as Fernando and Dancing Queen has been put up for sale.
The cottage has played a rich part in ABBA’s cultural heritage. It has been featured in TV specials, many pictures and even ABBA The Movie.
The fact that it has been so pivotal in the ABBA story is borne out by the inclusion of a faithful recreation of the cottage’s interior in the ABBAWORLD touring exhibition.
The ‘songwriters hut’ belongs to a larger property on the island of Viggsö in Stockholm’s archipelago. It is this property, for sale at SEK 7,000,000 and the property next door that are now for sale.
It is believed that Björn and Lena currently own both properties. Maybe they just didn’t get over there much this Summer?!
The property is referenced with the number 104 (the house next door is 108) on the Swedish property agency site Hemnet.se
You can see various pictures of ABBA on Viggsö at ABBA Annual’s page dedicated to the island.
