This is a Huf Haus – eco pre-fabs for the wealthy designed to order in Germany. Fluidity is the theme with beech floored, glass-walled, open-plan living spaces and electric blinds when the natural light becomes too much of a good thing. Three of the four bedrooms open on to balconies. The basement would make a good gym. Asking price: £995,000.
