Guide Price:



Wildwood is an iconic Grade II Listed contemporary home designed by celebrated architect Richard Horden in the early 1970s for his parents. The architecture is as striking today as it was back then with a white steel structure and walls of glass connecting the inside to the green spaces surrounding the house. With contemporary white finishes inside it has a tranquil - even serene - quality and it could be described as an oasis of calm.

The house is tucked away at the end of a long drive, shared with Little Wildwood, culminating at the main entrance where there is a courtyard garden featuring a reflective pond, the whole of which is enclosed by a white wall. Wildwood is largely transparent from front to back so it offers glimpses of the rear garden with its understated lawns and a proliferation of Rhododendrons.

The living accommodation comprises a large open plan living and dining space, two principal bedrooms suites, a galley kitchen, utility as well as a large informal sitting area which could also be utilised as bedroom three. All the principal rooms connect to the grounds via large sliding patio doors. In addition there is a large detached garage.

This is a unique opportunity to acquire a historic house with a special provenance and no doubt it will appeal to anyone interested in or influenced by contemporary design.
