Arts and Crafts Houses in Surrey by Dr Anne Anderson
The railways tempted the nouveau-riche to migrate to Surrey. Who influenced the style of the houses they built and where can they be seen?
For the new arrivals Richard Norman Shaw, the master of the English Country house, reshaped the Surrey style. By the 1890s the architect of choice was Edwin Lutyens, who also offered his clients a picturesque reworking of traditional Surrey forms.
The more adventurous opted for Charles Voysey, often described as England’s Mackintosh. The talk will also cover the refined houses of a range of other architects and the beautiful Arts and Crafts gardens with which many were surrounded.
These stunning houses will inspire you!
