There seems to be no shortage of covetable modern farmhouses on the market lately, leading this editor to believe that this particular style of home may be on its way to enjoying the real-estate spotlight for quite some time.

This sprawling house in the English countryside exemplifies just what’s so appealing about reimagined vernacular architecture. Located in Buckinghamshire in South East England, the 4,600-square-foot residence—designed by A-Zero architects and completed in 2014—features a timber- and brick-clad exterior with a gable roof and roomy interiors.

Adapted from a former agricultural building, the new home boasts flowing, open-plan spaces across an overall L-shaped floorplan that integrates exposed beams into sleek modern interiors. Currently arranged as a five-bedroom, the two-story includes a large living area with kitchen and dining, plus a separate sitting room, but an open wing of the home allows for additional flexibility to create a studio, office, workshop, or gym, for example.

Wide-plank floors, glass doors, large windows, wood paneling, and brick accents contribute to the rustic charm of the home, while two acres of gardens and patios surrounding the home offer plenty of outdoor enjoyment. Located in Aylesbury Vale, it’s offered at £1.7 million, or about $2.2 million.
