Minimalist American architect Hugh Newell Jacobsen is known for his simple, gabled "dream homes," but as you’ll see in the example of this award-winning, waterfront property in Easton, Maryland, the houses are anything but dull.

Looking more like a cluster of six structures than a single residence, this three-bedroom, 5,877-square-foot property—asking price: $2,950,000—was built in 1992 and takes after "A Village of One’s Own," the Jacobsen-designed home in Meadowbrook, Pennsylvania that is also made up of a series of connected "pavilions." It sits on five acres of secluded land by Shaw Bay accessed by a long, gravel driveway, and features a private pier, over 350 feet of water frontage, and a large swimming pool.

Inside the bright and airy space are floors laid with hardwood, generous full-height windows, ample living space, and stunning views of the water from nearly every room. The square volumes are connected by glass-walled walkways, which add an element of surprise to the otherwise minimalist home. Take a look around.
