|Reddish House, Wiltshire
Reddish House resembles Thorpe House in that it is of brick and contains the same pleasing proportion and similar roof shape. Built by a local builder, it shows how design filtered out from the cities, slowly re-emerging in local forms. This village house was the home of Sir Cecil Beaton, 1904 1980. For many years he was both a royal photographer and theatrical designer of great distinction. Reddish House is close to the medieval cathedral city of Salisbury, a chalk landscape of rolling hills.
