Contemporary House for Sale: Canterbury, Kent

Bedlam – Agester Lane, Denton


Bedlam was conceived by the current vendors to provide contemporary family accommodation, with a keen eye to detail and style, in a unspoilt rural location. Completed in 2011, the property has been built to the highest standards with a mix of traditional materials with a curved roof structure clad in copper and engineered to have no internal visible supports providing a large, vaulted and seemingly unsupported roof.

The rural location has been a source of inspiration, influencing the colour palettes used throughout. The railings and garden gates have been specifically commissioned from local blacksmiths to depict the branches and tree trunks of the surrounding woodland. Many of the materials used have been specifically sourced from around the world, for example the Turkish marble which has been used throughout the ground floor and the Chinese silk wallpapers, silk carpets, etc. The main kitchen area has a strong Italian influence with Kundalini light fittings.

The house has been carefully designed and built to the highest of modern standards creating an energy effient home with a user friendly home automation system.


Principally to the rear, the gardens have mature oaks, copper beech and mulberry trees. The grounds are laid to lawn with shady woodland areas, azalias and rhododenrons.
The front of the house is laid to lawn and a separate paddock is currently a wild flower meadow. The woodland adjacent to the road protects the grounds and is part of the curtilage.
The gardens are newly fenced with the additional protection of rabbit fencing.

Location: Canterbury, Kent
Guide price: Offers in excess of £2,500,000
Year built: 2011
House size: Five bedrooms, five bathrooms, 8,338 square feet

For Sale: Modern Contemporary House – East Sussex

20 Jul
July 20, 2012

An individual modern contemporary house set in rural countryside with mature gardens and grounds extending to approximately 3 acres. This house enjoys far reaching views across the undulating Tillingham Valley and with it being set well back off a quiet country lane surrounded by woodland you can enjoy the views in peace. There are polished concrete floors with underfloor heating throughout. Much of the internal timber and galvanised steel finishing has been left deliberately unfinished. Floor-to-ceiling glazing, skylights and large windows bring in plenty of light and give views of the surrounding gardens and woodland.

While this may sound and is idyllic it will certainly set you back a few pennies. It was on the market for £2m but you’ll be relieved to know this modern contemporary house could be yours for only £1,950,000. It does come with a swimming pool, hot tub, studio building, Airstream caravan and an American paddle tennis court (No, I had no idea what it was either until I googled it).

It has appeared in the following magazines:

American Architecture magazine DWELL.
The Sunday Times STYLE supplement.
The Independent magazine.
Coast Magazine.

The house will be listed as one of the most architecturally important houses in the country in the next issue of PEVSNER which is printed every 50 years and will be filmed for the new TV series “Inspiring Homes”.
