Location: Haveringland, England

Price: £895,000 (~$1,278,745)

In the rural English village of Haveringland, London-based architect David Kohn turned remnants of an 1800s stable block into a simple yet sublime one-story home, which won the firm a regional award from the Royal Institute of British Architects. The 2010-built house has vaulted ceilings running the length of it, along with an expansive series of glass doors that open the main open living and dining area up to the concrete terrace and lawns. The kitchen is a bit more tucked in and sits under a skylight.

The three bedrooms and bathroom on the other end of the house are similarly low-key, and feature single windows that let in more subdued light and views. Throughout the house, common materials have been put to refined uses, i.e. the whitewashed brick in the hallways, and a custom-designed concrete in the bathroom.
