Location: Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire, England

Price: £1,999,500 ($2,625,000)

An incredible modern property has come on the market in Beaconsfield, a small town in the county of Buckinghamshire, just 24 miles from London.

Designed by Stanley Hamp (of Collcutt and Hamp) and completed in 1934, the Grade-II listed home has since been updated, leaving many original details in tact, while side and rear extensions make sensitive additions to the house.

The 2,709-square-foot residence combines the International Style with Mediterranean influences and features an asymmetrical construction of multiple cubic volumes and “irregular fenestration,” as the listing notes, of Crittal windows. The two-story house is made from brick that has been finished in a limewashed rough stucco and is topped by a flat roof.

On the main floor are multiple communal spaces, including a large contemporary kitchen with breakfast room, a formal dining room that opens up to a glazed orangery, as well as a cinema room and a small glazed study. Upstairs, the four bedrooms, including the ensuite master, plus an additional bathroom, are found.

A private garden and two-car garage round out the property, which is offered at just under £2 million, or around $2.6 million. Have a look.
