Original wooden beams and flagstone floors are all intact at this English country manor, which sits in two acres of land.
A converted barn houses the main living space, which is filled with natural light thanks to double-height ceilings and a fully glazed end that offers views over the neighbouring fields. The floor is laid with herringbone pattern brickwork that connects an open-plan kitchen and living room, while overhead a mezzanine level offers space for a study.
The UK property – on the market with The Modern House for £1.25m – also includes a separate 16th-century farmhouse with four bedrooms, as well as a pool, tennis court and outhouse with a wine cellar. It’s set back from the road by a mile-long drive, but isn’t far from the nearby villages of Debenham and Eye. London’s Liverpool Street is an hour and a half away by train.
