Gorgeous Modern Beach Huts Have Stellar English Channel Views

Can you imagine the sunsets here?

Traditional British beach huts meet chic modern living in this row of new waterfront homes in the seaside town of Margate, England. Designed by London firm Guy Holloway Architects, each larchwood-clad gabled home features an open-plan design, with spiral staircases and glass wall overlooking the beach. Nine of the eleven units in the complex are two-story, which means they also boast fabulous second-floor terraces with the same views that inspired the famous sunset paintings by English impressionist JMW Turner. Tempted? Units have just hit the market and are seeking offers in the region of £485,000 (~$688,845).
