Maybe someone else can help locate Høierlund.
In case it helps, here are a few records.

Birth of Sverre 11 February 1890
Note residence - Thorød

Nøtterøy, Vestfold
Residence: Lindberg

Here is a list of neighboring residences in same census district in 1900.
Thorød is a neighbor to Lindberg.

April 1904
Sverre's confirmation record
Birthplace: Thorød

Nøtterøy, Vestfold
Residence: Høierlund
Sverre Mathisen born 11.02.1890, matros (a type of seaman).
Although he is enumerated, he is listed as being in Boston

Herstad census district in 1910 link

A useful map website

Local history for Høyerlund says Sverre settled in Australia (which you obviously know)

This photo of Torød in 1909 was posted for you in another forum:

Hi Paul, the property 125/19 doesn't seek to exist anymore, but I believe it should have been located in this area.
Likely near the road Nedre Gurødvei (posibly within the red circle):

I recommend you to contact Nøtterøy Historielag:
Nøtterøy Historical Society

A woman named Åsta Holth lived there in the 1950's, that might be an additional clue.
You could also contact some of the people that live in the area today, e.g. on the Nedre Gurødvei road.
