Location: Blackmore End, England
Price: £1,100,000 (~$1,694,990)
The graphic black, blue, and yellow exterior of this converted barn in the rural English hamlet of Blackmore End belies a much more raw interior, where the property's circa-1500s timber beams are exposed in all its historic glory. Renovated by local firm Pocknell Studio in 2010, the very open-plan residence can accommodate five bedrooms, with the master suite situated on a lofted space in the main living area.
As in other stellar historic remodels, modern conveniences were not spared: the kitchen sports marble countertops and there's solid oak with underfloor heating throughout. An adjoining former stable has also been turned into an office/studio.
