When the late LEGO heir Morten Kirk Johansen’s villa was put up for sale, it went straight into first place among the most expensive houses for sale in Jutland

In May, the villa was sold. Now the price has been published – and it is significantly higher than the record amount the villa was offered for.

The wild, 679 square meter villa in Bredballe is situated on a 4,000 square meter plot, directly next to Vejle Fjord. It was designed by Ginnerup Arkitekter and built 18 years ago, and in 2013 an extensive renovation was carried out under the guidance of architect Søren Ravn.

Or as the amateur real estate agency Lilienhoff describes it:

“Right next to a discreet projection on the northern shore of Vejle Fjord lies this magnificent villa, which stands out with a characteristic, distinctive architecture, materials of absolute top quality and a beautiful, unobstructed view.”

What would the glory cost? The luxury villa was put up for sale for DKK 49.5 million. But it appears from the Land Registry that the villa has been sold for a staggering DKK 70 million.

Worth mentioning is that it is Morten Kirk Johansen’s widow who bought the villa from the estate.

Morten Kirk Johansen died in January 2021 at the age of 47 after a long illness with cancer. He was trained as a graphic designer and owner of the restaurant Remouladen in Vejle and the gourmet restaurant Lyst in Fjordenhus by Vejle Harbour. He was also chairman of the board of the publishing house Pil and of Højgaard Tapperi.

Kirk Johansen is the part of the Lego family that was bought out by the toy empire in 2007. Since then, the family has established the money tank Kirk Kapital, of which Morten Kirk Johansen owned 25 percent.
