THE Landmark Trust is opening Anderton Houe at Goodleigh on Saturday and Sunday of next week as part of the free Heritage Open Days event
It will give people an opportunity to see inside this interesting building and learn more about its history. It will be open between 10am and 4pm on each day.
Anderton House is an unusually complete example of 1970s domestic architecture and is a Grade II* listed building of exceptional modern design.
Commissioned in 1969 by Ian and May Anderton, a chemist and his wife from Barnstaple, as a family home, it was designed by architect Peter Aldington of Aldington and Craig.
The inspiration for its profile was taken from the traditional Devon longhouses. Highly evocative of its time, Anderton House retains all its contemporary materials and features including the roof which appears to float above the open plan living room.
All are welcome to attend these open days and there is no need to book. A free information leaflet will be available which explains the building's architecture and recent refurbishment.
