Rustic and modern

Although the United Kingdom has its own share of issues to work through, we wouldn’t mind taking a short holiday across the pond if it means taking a step back from all the brouhaha of Election Day (after we vote, that is) and relaxing at this rustic-modern heritage-listed windmill property in the English countryside.

Designed by RIBA-award winning architect Sarah Featherstone of Featherstone Young, this converted 1866-built mill-house-and-granary includes a just-completed main house that features a spare, contemporary look. The granary preserves the old bones of the original structure, which have become the basis for an expansive, triple-height space with concrete floors, brick walls, floor-to-ceiling glazing, and two large spaces for entertaining.

Between the two structures are seven bedrooms—five in the main house and two in the granary—and can accommodate up to 17 guests. Outside, a one-and-a-half acre garden boasts a stone-walled dining space and wood-burning pizza oven, making this rental one of the chicest venues ever for holding the ultimate pizza party. Prices start at £4,000 ($5,000) per week.
