Standen is an Arts and Crafts house near East Grinstead in West Sussex. The house and its surrounding gardens belong to the National Trust and are open to the public. It is a Grade I listed building.
Between 1891 and 1894 the house was designed for a wealthy London solicitor, James Beale, his wife Margaret, and their family of seven children. The house is constructed in the Wealden vernacular style with sandstone quarried from the estate and locally made bricks and tiles. The interior is decorated with Morris carpets, fabrics and wallpapers and delightful furnishings, and the garden complements the splendour of the house.
The house had electric power from when it was first built, originally generated by a donkey engine in a shed by the old barn. The house still has its original electric light fittings.
After Beales death in 1912, Margaret Beale continued to live at Standen. When she died in 1936, their unmarried daughter, Margaret, succeeded her, and after her death in 1947, Standen came into the possession of Helen, their youngest daughter, also unmarried. On Helens death in 1972 the house passed by bequest to the National Trust for Places of Historic Interest or Natural Beauty.
The estate was formed from three farms which the Beales purchased in 1890. The Beales started planting a 12 acre garden almost immediately after they had purchased the land, using the site of an 18th century garden and orchard. In early 1891 trees were planted, a yew hedge established and the kitchen garden begun in earnest.
The family sought the advice of a London landscape gardener, G.B. Simpson, who drew up a layout that assumed that the new house would be located on the line of the existing terrace, but the house was to be constructed on the hillside. The proposed planting schemes were characterised by strict geometrical layouts of colourful flowerbeds and shrubs. The properties architect preferred a mixture of natural styles combining old fashioned formality and compartmentalised gardens. He also designed a number of other elements in the garden.
The resulting Arts and Crafts garden used local materials for its formal elements, and loose plantings amongst yew hedges, trellis and pergolas, emphasising natural colour schemes and subtle combinations of colour and foliage.
The National Trust acquired Standen Wood, originally part of the larger West Sussex estate at the property, in 2001. The wood had been owned and managed as a nature reserve since the 1970s and is a haven for wild birds.
