Smerin Architects have designed the 'Red Bridge House,' a property located on the outskirts of Ashdown Forest in East Sussex, England.

The family home is comprised of three generous levels, around which an ample terrace is wrapped. The terrace is partially covered, ensuring that weather is not an impediment to enjoying the forest views. The exterior of the home complements the uncomplicated, straightforward agriculture buildings that surround it.

Though the house is very minimalist -- it features a pared down color palette, natural materials and generally low-key aesthetic -- there is still an element of luxury present. For example, the house features a beautiful indoor swimming pool, proving that you can balance simplicity and extravagance within a single dwelling.
