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”.

For Sale: Contemporary House – Cramond, Edinburgh

July 19, 2012

I came across this unique contemporary house on the Knight Frank website. It’s a 5 bedroom house in Scotland, with views across open meadows towards The Firth of Forth.

Unfortunately there is very little information about the property, other than that it is a development on the edge of Cramond and has ‘state-of-the-art family accommodation on two floors with ample private gardens, garaging and dramatic views’.

While it’s nice I don’t think it’s £1,500,000 nice.

July 16, 2012

Our first post. Let’s get the ball rolling by featuring a particular favourite of mine.
Here we have an Oast House for sale in Peasmarsh – a village near to Rye, East Sussex. An Oast House is a building containing an oast (a kiln for drying hops); usually has a conical or pyramidal roof.

This detached twin roundel grade II listed oast house  has been subject to a high quality  conversion combining the traditional character of the building with modern contemporary living. It is set off a country lane in lawned gardens which back onto open farmland. Within the garden there is a detached guest cottage as well as several useful outbuildings.

Peasmarsh offers a good range of local services including a large independently owned supermarket, a primary school, two public houses and the Parish Church of St. Peter and St. Paul. The Ancient Town and Cinque Port of Rye is located 6 miles away and is famed for its historical associations. The town offers a range of local shops, restaurants and train services on the Brighton to Ashford line with fast connections to London (37 minutes) and the Continent.

Included in the images above are before and after shots of the conversion. Just the painting of the window frames has transformed the look of the building.

The above property is on the market at £995,000
