Blackwell's Arts & Crafts architect MH Baillie Scott who created this historic house

The Architect

Mackay Hugh Baillie Scott (1865 - 1945)

Baillie Scott had already made a name for himself when Blackwell was completed in 1901, by publishing his sketches and ideas in The Studio, a magazine read by everyone interested in architecture and interior design. Blackwell offered him the opportunity to put his ideas on the use of space, light and texture into practice on a grand scale and, perhaps, to experiment in ways which might not have been possible had the property been intended as the client’s main home, rather than a holiday home away from urban life.
