You don't have to head to the US for a cool midcentury home, you can pick up this 1960s Alan Reiach-designed midcentury modern property in Torphichen, West Lothian, Scotland – which is cheaper than you think.

Designed by architect Alan Reiach OBE in conjunction with the owners back in the early '60s, it is largely unchanged over the decades and packed full of period features – floor-to-ceiling windows, wood floors, wood panelling (walls and ceiling), exposed brick walls, built-in furnishings, a sliding wall to partition the dining room from living room and much more.
