The Red House

Place  From 1860 

Categories: Architecture

Located in Bexleyheath, it was co-designed by Philip Webb and William Morris, to serve as a family home for the latter. Morris's passions for medieval-inspired neo-gothic styles are reflected throughout its design, and It was here that he began his earliest wallpaper designs. It remained a private residence and was lived in by the future architect Edward Maufe, when young. 2003 it was purchased by the National Trust and is now a visitor attraction with an accompanying tea room and the inevitable gift shop.

Not to be confused with the Red House at the Deptford Victualling Yard, nor with the Red House in Aldeburgh shared by Peter Pears and Benjamin Britten.
