An elegant detached residence which stands out as a landmark property.
The inspiration for Fairwood House came from Sir Edwin Lanseer Lutyens, the 20th Centurys leading British architect. Lutyens was commissioned to design many of the great English country houses as well being appointed by the government to design and build Viceroy House in Delhi, which has since become the residence of the President of India.
This imposing property enjoys a double plot, which measures around 0.6 acres, faces due south to the rear of the property and also backs on to Turners Wood a 7 Acre private bird sanctuary. In 2006, the property was completely rebuilt behind the original facade to create a house fit for the twenty-first century whilst ensuring that the layout remained loyal to the original that Lutyens created. All of the principal reception rooms on the ground floor are facing the extensive gardens, are inter-connected and at the rear of the property, providing excellent flow and family living accommodation.
The house is endowed with exceptionally high ceilings. Most of the rooms on the ground floor enjoy ceiling heights in excess of 3.3 metres and some rise to well over 4 metres.
The house is a true thoroughbred in the best traditions of past master builders, rarely seen today. The dignified but unconventional frontage is crafted of the finest handmade grey and red brickwork that gives life to the elevations. Imposing chimneystacks, two niches situated at ground floor level, and a swans neck pediment that stands above the front entrance complete the frontage of this imposing grade II listed home. The house wears its elegance lightly without striving for effect and without the need for superfluous columns or porticoes.
Lutyens was commissioned to provide drawings for the elevations by Reginald McKenna, Chairman of Midland
