Wildwood up for sale
Wildwood was one of Richard Horden's first projects, a house he designed for his parents that was constructed in 1974. The style was influenced by the Daphne and Rosen houses designed by the American architect Craig Elwood and is essentially a combination of three concepts. The sequential experience of architecture combined with enclosure in a clear walled courtyard and the early exploration of modular frame construction.
The property is situated away from the road, approached via a long driveway. A long white screen wall signals your arrival at the property. The pedestrian doorway leads through into the private walled courtyard garden providing the first full view of the house and the ornamental reflecting pool.
On the other side of the property is a large lawned garden, simply planted with surrounding Rhododendrons. The East-West orientation of the spaces in the house provides gently balanced light filtering through the property.
The courtyard house was awarded English Heritage Grade II listing in 2007.
