Do old orchard plots hide some of the best modern gems in the U.K.? Like that gorgeous Mies-inspired pad in Scotland, this one-story beaut designed by the late, great British Modernist John Penn also shines bright amongst a picturesque field of fruit trees. Penn, who'd spent a few years working for Richard Neutra, brought a bit of California modernism to this home with a rigorously symmetrical plan and ample glazing—and it is just fabulous.

The three-bedroom house, built in 1966, has been thoroughly restored in recent years. Typical of modernist stunners, there's not much razzle dazzle, but the interior is pure heaven. The house spreads three bedrooms, a living room, dining room, and kitchen over 1,700 square feet, and sports the most soothing palette of pale blues and greens.
