Location: Amersham, Buckinghamshire, England

Price: £1,380,000 (approximately $1,717,000)

This Grade-II listed three-bedroom was completed in 1935 as first of a series of homes designed by architects Amyas Connell and Basil Ward known as Sun Houses. Located in Buckinghamshire county, just 40 minutes (by train) outside of London, the Art Deco property has been meticulously restored and sympathetically extended, creating a bright and open space featuring white concrete walls and generous, original windows in the Streamline style of the period, with frames painted a lovely mint green.

The first floor features an expansive, modern kitchen with marble countertops that opens onto a patio via sliding glass doors, and a bi-level open-plan living area with an entirely glazed wall that establishes a seamless connection with the greenery of the backyard. From there, an exposed concrete staircase, framed by a double-height strip of windows, leads to the second floor where the private quarters are found, and to the floor above it, where a study and a partially covered roof terrace are sited.

Though the 2,064-square-foot property isn’t as flashy with its Art Deco heritage as this gem in Tacoma, Washington, it still possesses that nautical flair, however subtle. Located at Highover Park in the old market town of Amersham, it’s asking £1,380,000, or approximately $1,717,000.
