5 of the best homes for open-plan living

Open-plan living has become a signature style choice in the UK, helping make our homes feel more sociable and inclusive.

Be inspired by the various styles of open-plan spaces, offered within some of our finest homes for sale today.

Traditionally, properties were built and designed to ensure that each room had a specific purpose and kept separate from each other. However, throughout the 21st Century, open-plan living has become a popular trend and is often preferred by homeowners and tenants. Open-plan rooms reflect a modern lifestyle, whether that means being able to keep an eye on children playing during mealtime preparation, or simply being able to move seamlessly from one area to the next.

From new-builds to the re-configuration of a country home, here are five of our best properties for open-plan living.
