Modern house for sale blends midcentury cues with Scandinavian flair

Talk about a wall of glass!

This modern stunner in Suffolk, U.K., was designed by Copenhagen-based Norm Architects just three years ago, and recently hit the market for a cool £1.5 million ($2 million). The sleek style of the single-story pavilion echoes modernist classics like Mies van der Rohe’s Farnsworth House and Philip Johnson’s Glass House—but with a more livable, Scandinavian touch.

The 2,500-square-foot abode rests on a slightly elevated stone platform and is clad in vertical strips of local Siberian Larch, with ample windows—in fact, the entire length of one long wall is made of glass.

A central entrance opens onto a cozy reception area and hall running along the glass side of the building, connecting the open plan kitchen and living room at one end to two bedrooms and a master suite at the other. Dinesen Douglas Fir floorboards (atop a radiant floor heating system) are used throughout.

A verdant one-acre property surrounds the home and boasts an additional 1,000-square-foot studio building nearby. The land adjoins a working farm and the Reydon Marshes.
