The hard work has been done in these stylish homes, currently on the market with The Modern House.
1. location location location
Situated on Highgate High Street, this two-bedroom first floor apartment is in the centre of Highgate 'village' and a short walk from the ancient Highgate wood and Hampstead ponds nearby, so it's conveniently close to both the artisan shops and cafes and green spaces that the area is known for.
2. rural idyll
Designed by the architect Andrew Hughes in 2017 and known as Butterfly Barn, this four-bedroom house is in rural Essex, close to the village of Bradfield. If you're looking to live the country dream, whilst maintaining links to London, it's ten minutes to Manningtree train station, which will get you to Liverpool Street in under an hour.

3. Hello Flower
A ten minute walk from Columbia Road and its famous Sunday flower market, this one-bedroom flat is set within a beautiful converted Victorian school and beautifully decorated throughout with a moody palette and natural materials. The kitchen has poured concrete work surfaces and there's a separate dining area (or work zone), central living area and a generously sized bedroom with ample storage.
4. house of fun
A short walk from Crouch End village, this four-bedroom house was originally built in the 80s. It has recently been extended by D*Haus and had the interior playfully redesigned by Rhonda Drakeford of Darkroom. Expect plenty of natural light and splashes of bold colour throughout this modern home.
5. mid-century modern
Built in the 1960s, with a sympathetic extension added in 2008, this three-bedroom mid-century house is set over two floors with the living areas on the top floor, with views over the surrounding garden. Set in a quiet hamlet enclosed by woodland, in the Fenay Bridge area of West Yorkshire, the house is just a 10-minute drive from the Peak District’s gritstone tors and 30 miles south of the Yorkshire Dales’ most southerly tip.
See if these stylish homes from August are still on the market.
