Statoil sells exclusive mountain ski and sports retreat / News / The Foreigner

Statoil sells exclusive mountain ski and sports retreat. Norway energy giant Statoil has put three Geilo cabins in one on the market to divest itself of the properties that seem to be going to waste. Amongst already high housing prices in Norway due to foreigners, and Sweden because of Norwegians, these choice cabin cuts could be yours for a starting price of NOK 25.5 million (about USD 4.58 million/GBP 2.82 million at today’s ROE). Statoil media relations director Jannik Lindbæk jr. tells regional paper Stavanger Aftenblad, one of the grounds for disposing of the cabins is unrealistically large travelling distances from major cities Oslo, Bergen, and Stavanger.

Amongst already high housing prices in Norway due to foreigners, and Sweden because of Norwegians, these choice cabin cuts could be yours for a starting price of NOK 25.5 million (about USD 4.58 million/GBP 2.82 million at today’s ROE).

Statoil media relations director Jannik Lindbæk jr. tells regional paper Stavanger Aftenblad, one of the grounds for disposing of the cabins is unrealistically large travelling distances from major cities Oslo, Bergen, and Stavanger.

According to him, the company quite simply wants properties nearer to its offices. The present cabins have mainly been used for seminars and international events.

“The reason for the sale is that we’re not able to exploit the location’s potential adequately satisfactorily. We see that the number of people going there is not high enough and therefore see ourselves served by putting it up for sale,” Mr Lindbæk says.

Estate agent Herland Eiendom Eiendomsmegler Vest is selling the three cabins – Troll, Åsgård, and Veslefrikk – on behalf of Statoil, which the firm says potential buyers simply have to see.

Regarding location, they write the well-established Kikut Nord cabin development is in “an attractive, established and exclusive area for holidays and leisure experiences.”

The some 20 people that can stay there can look out over Hallingskarvet, Geilo, and Havsdalen, amongst other places, all with the possibility of sun and a sauna.

Storage space for sports equipment and/or wood completes the five buildings total.

Interested buyers can view details of the properties here (external link, in Norwegian).

“We’ve received some phone calls [about them], but no offers for now,” estate agent Jannike Seljevoll Herleiksplass informs Stavanger Aftenblad.
