A Swedish village in Sala is in the market for $7.2 million (N2,783,304,000). The entire hamlet is sitting on 62 acres of land and is composed of un-gated 70 buildings.

Individual buildings in the village do not have kitchens as food are meant to be served from a central kitchen in the community to engender communal living, New York Times reports.

Some of the structures in the village date back to 1700 as it has been in operation for several functions for hundreds of years. There was a time it was used as a wellness retreat.

One of the residents, Mats Wikman said that most of the residents are in their middle ages and they need more people in the community.

It should be noted that out of the villages like it built in the country, only this particular one has survived through ages with its historical essence intact.

A more detailed description of the village showed that at the centre of the community is a cluster of buildings built as hotels where they are shared bathrooms and common rooms.

“The big challenge would be to choose which houses a new owner wants to start working on,” Mr. Martinsson, another resident, said.

One of the things to look forward to in the community is a 19th century deconsecrated church and other lovely commercial enterprises.

Another thing worthy of note is that when coronavirus hit the nation, Sweden did not enforce a total lockdown but allowed for flexible control of the virus.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Molise, an underpopulated region in southern Italy, offered to pay newcomers €700 every month for three years so they could stay in one of its villages.

The condition for the payment is that the village must have over 2,000 inhabitants and before a newcomer qualifies for the payment, he must vow to open a business there.

The president of the Molise region, Donato Toma, said that offering money without the condition for investment will make the whole plan like another charity gesture.
