19th-Century Greenhouse Converted Into Airy Modern Home For Sale in Kent

Grow the perfect vegetable garden

This bright and airy residence (asking £675,000, or about $963,600) in Hawkhurst, a historic village in Kent, England was once a 19th-century greenhouse situated on the former Lillesden Estate. Designed by Peter Leonard, the two-bedroom, two-story brick-and-glass home retains much of the original greenhouse on the south-facing side of the property, but is decidedly modern in all other respects.

Running parallel to the high-pitched greenhouse are the living areas, which feature custom in-wall shelving, broad windows, and a sleek sunken kitchen featuring Corian countertops and radiant-heated floors. There’s also an ensuite bedroom, natch. The second bedroom, which is accessed via a set of stairs that leads down from the living room, has custom storage units and full-height windows.

The property also comes with lush gardens, as well as a detached store house that can be used as a home office or even converted into additional bedrooms.
