Here’s a 1973 property that fits right in with the growing list of posh modernist homes recently cropping up across the pond. For one, it’s an original (and still inhabited by the current owners who designed it). Moreover, it incorporates a little more heft than the afore-mentioned dwellings, most clearly seen in the generous use of wood, stone, brick, and glass.

The low-slung single-story residence also features a dynamic, split-level L-shaped layout that includes a sitting room that flows into a rosewood-paneled dining area two steps up, a well-preserved period kitchen, and an additional sunken seating area with a handsome built-in leather banquet facing a sleek fireplace.

Three large bedrooms—one of which boasts a geometric wooden accent wall—two bathrooms, a “conservatory,” and garage with attached greenhouse complete the 2,490-square-foot abode.

A lovely English garden designed by George Whiteleg, a rolling lawn, “formal” pond, and pergola round out the property. Located on Heath Road in Barming, Kent, just outside London, it’s offered at £925,000, or approximately $1.19 million.
