About Timothy Richards
How to Buy
Reddish House resembles Thorpe House (also featured in this catalogue) 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.
