Architect Beverley David Thorne designed this midcentury house in Connecticut for jazz composer Dave Brubeck. On the market for the first time ever, the 1961 Wilton property was Brubeck’s reward to his family for selling a million copies of his record, Time Out. It’s built with wood, glass and stone, with wraparound porches and floor-to-ceiling glass that maximise views of the 6,250-sq-ft home’s forested grounds. Take a tour of the midcentury property.

This Cornish holiday home has views onto the UK’s dramatic Lizard Peninsula. Sitting above Coverack Cove, the modern property combines concrete and glass with coastal views. Guests can cosy up by the fire to watch the storms roll in from the sea via huge windows in the open-plan living room. Cloud gaze from the outdoor pine hot tub before toasting marshmallows over the fire pit.
