The United Kingdom has some stellar conversions, the least of which is this four-bedroom in Monmouthshire, Wales that was once a paper mill and a fishery. The early-19th-century industrial building was first converted in 1979 by architect Brendan Woods then later extended to create a spacious, airy home with many original details and plenty of windows.

Taking center stage is the loft-like great room, which features exposed stone walls, a vaulted and beamed ceiling with a partially glazed roof, wood-burning stove, and an open plan. This room flows into a glass-walled, greenhouse-like addition that holds the light-flooded kitchen.

Downstairs, the private living quarters, a family room with another wood-burning stove, and a mud room are found. The master ensuite bathroom also enjoys the charm of a vaulted ceiling. All told, the residence measures 2,900 square feet and sits on approximately two acres of land, which boast lush gardens and the “ruins” of three stone tanks. Located in the valley of Whitebrook, the property is offered at £675,000, or around $843,000.
