Frank Lloyd Wright’s ‘favourite small house’ in Michigan, US
2 bedrooms; $479k direct
The Usonian Goetsch-Winckler House was built in 1939 for a pair of professors at the nearby Michigan State University. The 1,400 sq ft Okemos property has since been lovingly restored by its present owners, Dan and Audrey Seidman, over the past 13 years. The single-storey home has walls of windows that flood the brick house with light and connect it to its wooded 2-acre plot. See inside.
Grade II* listed Clayton Windmills in West Sussex, UK
7 bedrooms; £3m via The Modern House
The Grade II*-listed Clayton Windmills tower over the West Sussex countryside and are nicknamed Jack and Jill. The mill has been masterfully converted by architect Sarah Featherstone to blend its Victorian structures, including a roundhouse, converted granary and a 20th-century modernist Millhouse, into a sprawling contemporary complex clad aluminum.

A converted Piano factory in London, UK
2 bedrooms; £3.65m via United Kingdom Sotheby’s International Realty
Rusted metal and wired glass accents nod to this apartment’s past as a piano maker’s workshop. The London loft has wide, wood-panelled spaces, with factory-style windows, high beamed ceilings and exposed brick walls. Cast-iron radiators, pipe-like pendant lights, corroded metal doors and wired glass panels add to the rugged industrial look. Get a closer look.
