10 bedrooms; 6,000 sq ft; £1.5m via Mr and Mrs Clarke
This vast countryside home is set above Robin Hood’s Bay in Yorkshire and is a life-changing property. Parts of Thorpe Hall date back to the 16th century though it’s been added too throughout the centuries, especially during the Victorian period. It’s replete with wood-panelled rooms, period fireplaces and original mouldings that fill rooms with character, and the 6,000 sq ft home also has 4.5 acres of gardens and paddocks. One wing is run as a popular B&B, while a separate two-storey Coach House could also be a future commercial let, WFH studio or event space. Get a closer look.

Architect AW Hubert Vijfeyken designed this Zaventem villa in 1975 for his family. The brutalist-inspired Belgium property is constructed with brick, timber and concrete and has a carefully considered light flow, which highlights its geometric volumes.

Frank House in Fire Island, US

3 bedrooms; $1.495m via VP Fire Island Pines
Fire Island was the place to be in 1961 when Andrew Geller designed this three-bedroom property in the exclusive New York community. Its rooms have high ceilings and vast expanses of glass to capture the views. The home has a private heated swimming pool as well as a rooftop terrace with 360-degree views over the surrounds.

A detached house designed for wellness in London, UK

4 bedrooms; 2,150 sq ft; £2m via The Modern House 
Local practice TDO Architects designed this detached house in southwest London on the site of a former coach house. Conceived with wellness in mind, it was constructed from ecological materials in 2019, and has an MVHR (Mechanical Ventilation and Heat Recovery) system for air quality control and an Air Source Heat pump, while concrete floors and Crittal doors add an industrial bent to interiors. The London property has its own courtyard, and access to 12-acres of private gardens, tennis courts and a lake that make up the grounds of the neighbouring St Margaret’s Trust.
