Has it changed much over the years? Well, there has been some modernisation. A glance at the kitchen area will tell you that. But above all, this place has been maintained well, with key selling points such as the open-plan layout, floor-to-ceiling windows, hardwood floors and beams all still present and correct, not to mention that feeling of being a part of nature, even when inside the house.

It is up for sale for $599,900, which works out at around £365,000.
