Carefully restored by historic paint expert Pedro da Costa Felgueiras of Lacquer Studios, this three-bedroom Georgian townhouse in east London was rescued from ruin and brought back to a semblance of its 18th-century self. Walls have been painted with hand-mixed antique pigments and lost wood panelling has been reinstated. Amenities are thoroughly modern, however. Take a closer look.

1 bedroom: $649,000 via Tomlinson Sotheby’s International Realty
Architect Paul Hirzel designed rural retreat Canyon House in Idaho’s Juliaetta back in 2003 as a hillside home for enjoying the simple pleasures of life: fishing, walking and being submerged in nature. Its shed-roof design follows the topography of the landscape, while its interiors recall a modern cabin with timber as far as the eye can see.
