Waterfront Family Home in Asker, Norway

The New York Times shows us the home of the Leopold family — it's on the edge of a Fjord in Asker, Norway. Just south of Oslo, the home takes full advantage of the surrounding views and features many large windows, a dock for fishing and swimming and five outdoor decks...

While the home appears ready for Scandinavian summers, it also must be comfortable in the dark and cold winters — there is an elaborate electrical heating system in all the floors of the house and even "under the driveway and the path leading to the front door."

Check it out: On the Edge of a Fjord and all the pictures in the slideshow.
