This contemporary three-bedroom home in the village of Bishopstrow in Wiltshire in South West England was designed by the late Michael Newberry, a renowned British architect who is credited with designing the country’s first glass-and-steel structure, called Panshanger, in 1958.

This 2006 version, which he also made for himself, comprises a single-story, flat-roofed steel structure that has been “grit-blasted” and “zinc-sprayed.” In effect one large space like Panshanger, the 1,784-square-foot residence is divided into three bedrooms and living areas by rendered partition walls. Floor-to-ceiling walls of glass provide panoramic views of the surrounding gardens and terraces designed by landscaper John Brookes, while a small pool offers additional outdoor enjoyment.

The minimalist house is primed to take advantage of all the natural light that pours in through the windows, with roof hangings and louvers maximizing heat in the winter and providing shade in the summer.

The property also includes a two-car garage that could be converted into a studio or annex, and the opportunity to build a fourth bedroom. Located on Mill Lane, the home is listed for £1,500,000, or approximately $1,869,000.
