15 1/2 Peckham House

This is one amazing house. Monty Ravenscroft paid £40,000 for a small rubbish-strewn plot of land in southeast London. He then spent £210,000 to come up with a jaw-dropping home that includes such touches as a retracting roof and an unusual bath...

We covet this backsplash.

Check out the lighted flush-fitting shower head.

The sink in a drawer.

The sliding rooflight.

And -- get this -- the space-saving sliding bed/spa bath.
