The English Manor
Located in the UK sits a home designed and built in 1904 by architect Edwin Lutyens. The home is built of chalk, a material that has not been used often for the past two hundred years. When I saw this home I almost melted. Architect Edwin Lutyens did a beautiful job coordinating the facades white chalk with the hipped roof. I love how the home looks like it could belong in medieval England, yet its only 107 years old and built on a farm. I find the way the windows are positioned on this home quite unique. If you look at the first photo. The windows follow a certain symmetry, yet they are not perfectly symmetrical. This slight imperfection adds character to the home. If you look at the right side of the home, slightly below where the roof overhangs you see the rolling hills extend. This causes the viewer to be immediately drawn to the roof of the home.
