Described as ‘fusing a variety of influences from traditional Kentish barns, the modernist houses of the twentieth century as well as more recent architectural precedents’, the Trish House contemporary modernist property in Yalding, near Maidstone, Kent was a house we featured a while back and it looked to have sold pretty quickly. But the seller has just told us that due to a sale falling through, it is back on the market – and at a reduced price.
It’s an unusual and striking structure, said to reflect the surrounding woodland, with irregular columns representing the ‘raking patterns’ of tree trunks. There are also large expanses of glass too, doing a pretty decent job of bringing that outside into the property (or vice versa).
As for the house itself, it covers around 3314 sq. ft. of space and stands in 0.66 acres of land, with a spacious entrance hall with storage/cloaks cupboard leading to a concealed pocket door, which opens to a triple aspect drawing room with feature staircase.
Like most of the ground floor, that drawing room has a stained oak floor, but unlike the other rooms, it has an impressive Fireorb suspended steel wood burning fireplace with 360 degree rotation and a sliding glass wall that opens onto the garden. Also on this floor is a double aspect sitting room, an open plan kitchen/dining room, a utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer plus a further cloakroom.
Head up that feature staircase and you’ll be greeted with a landing overlooking the rear garden, which in turn takes you to a double aspect master bedroom with dressing room and en-suite, three further front-facing bedrooms, a guest bedroom with en-suite shower room, a further bedroom/study and a family bathroom.
Outside is a tarmac driveway for additional parking, a detached double garage, front and back gardens plus a hardwood decked terrace.
Certainly impressive and a house that is now at a reduced price. Saying that, it is still at £1,195,000.
