This is already accepted. It also sounds really, really strange in English and quite dated. :)

Actually, that would be fine in English. It's not common, but someone saying this would definitely be understood.

    senin gelmen = your coming - That is a genitive construction.

    Why is "you can't come to this house" unacceptable? One frequently says "can/can't" for "to be allowed/forbidden" in spoken English.

    "You can't come to this house" has a similar meaning, but it doesn't use the gerund "your coming."
