Trish House is a unique and superb example of contemporary architecture, fusing a variety of influences from traditional barns, the modernist houses of the twentieth century as well as more recent architectural precedents. The architect has designed the building’s structure to reflect the surrounding woodland with the irregular columns representing the raking patterns of tree trunks and branches.

Large expanses of glass have been used to create living pictures of the landscape beyond, viewed from between the branches of structure. The traditional black and white weatherboarding represents the foliage wrapping the building and enclosing the spaces within.
An imposing front door opens to a spacious entrance hall with a large storage/cloaks cupboard. A concealed pocket door opens to the capacious triple aspect drawing room. It has a feature staircase to the first-floor with glass balustrade. Throughout the ground floor is a stained oak floor.
The drawing room has a dramatic Fireorb suspended steel wood burning fireplace with 360 degree rotation. A sliding glass wall to the rear opens to the garden. From the entrance hall via another retracting pocket door is a double aspect sitting room. The open plan kitchen/dining room is an excellent feature with sliding glass rear wall. All rooms have been fitted with stunning dark timber shutters, as well as the sliding glass wall for a contemporary and modern look.
The kitchen has been fitted with white gloss units, Corian work surfaces and a range of integrated appliances. There is a utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer. A cloakroom completes the ground floor.
The staircase rises to a spacious landing with large window overlooking the rear garden. The double aspect master bedroom is open to a well-proportioned dressing room with a large range of wardrobes.
The en-suite bathroom has a separate shower cubicle and recessed storage behind two of the mirrors. There are three bedrooms of similar sizes to the front with large windows. The guest bedroom is to the rear and has an en-suite shower room. It has a door to bedroom six and it could therefore form an additional large suite. The family bathroom has a separate shower cubicle.
Alternatively bedroom six can be a study. See: Brilliant Study Design Ideas.
The property is approached from another road via a tarmac driveway leading into a gravel driveway providing parking and turning for several cars. The drive culminates at a detached double garage constructed in the same style as the house.
The gardens are a delightful feature with an array of mature trees and shrubs and form an unusual established setting for a new house. The rear garden is predominantly laid to lawn and immediately to the rear of the house is hardwood decked terrace. You may need to hire a gardener to deal with the upkeep of the garden.
