Now here’s an intriguing take on an A-frame house, if it could even be called that. Shaped like a scalene triangle, this 1976 home in the coastal village of Climping in West Sussex, England, was designed by Antonio Perella, according to the owner, and it features flashes of Scandinavian style throughout.

It’s no surprise, then, that the residence is called Scyld, after the Danish king in Beowulf. As for what makes the home special, it’s the nearly 2,700 square feet of living space that accommodates five bedrooms (two of which are flex rooms), two baths, and many common areas over three floors.

On the main level is a living area characterized by a double-faced brick fireplace on the other side of which is a smaller sitting area. A dining room, updated kitchen, breakfast room, and study round out this floor, where hardwood floors and tongue-and-groove ceilings and paneled walls complement the sliding glass doors opening directly onto the patio.

Upstairs, a master suite with patio, two additional bedrooms, plus a family bathroom are found, with three additional loft rooms rounding out the the third floor. Lush gardens, mature trees and shrubs, and a lawn surround the property, which is approximately two acres large. Interested buyers, take note of its guide price of £725,000, or just about a tad over $1 million.
