Location: Pevensey Bay, East Sussex, England

Price: £2,950,000 ($3,960,000)

An incredible modern home designed in the early 1930s by architect C. Evelyn Simmons for actor Nicholas Prinsep and his wife the dancer Anita Elson has come on the market in Pevensey Bay, a small coastal town on the East Sussex coast in South East England.

Characterized by the clean lines and curves of the Streamline Moderne style, the 6,134-square-foot residence, which has been extensively restored and renovated, boasts stunning views of the sea by way of glass expanses and bright, open rooms that face the water.

The ground floor features two reception rooms, the main of which includes a fireplace, curved windows, and other original details, four bedrooms including a master suite, formal dining (all of which have sea views), a kitchen with what appears to be original (not to mention gorgeous) cabinetry, an office, and utility rooms.

Upstairs, another bedroom plus a solarium-turned-living room reside, alongside two huge balconies on either side. As for the interiors, floors are hardwood, pale walls with Art Deco molding in parts, steel handrails on the staircase, and tiled bathrooms.

Set on an acre, the home also offers spectacular grounds: gardens, lawns, a geometric heated pool, and a garage with studio. Just under two hours by train to London, the property is offered at £2,950,000, or approximately $3,960,000. Have a look.
