An award-winning brick-and-timber home in London’s Highgate Village is on the market for the first time ever. Designed by Charlie Sutherland, the dynamic contemporary residence known as Barnhouse comprises the main house, a cottage, and maisonette for a total living area of 6,000 square feet.

Set on a private quarter-acre site, the property arranges itself in an angular crescent shape, with four bedrooms, a living area, dining room, and kitchen occupying the two-story main structure. Dramatic lengths of timber, concrete, and metal characterize the space, while windows and sliding glass doors open the interiors to the lush outdoors, including a triangular pool on one side, and a glazed atrium on the other.

On the other end of the curved lot is a two-story cottage within an old barn, where a double-height kitchen and dining area, plus an additional bedroom, studio, and bathroom reside. There’s also a retail shop and a two-story four-bedroom maisonette. Quite striking, the house, on offer for £7,600,000, or about $10,261,000.
