This dramatic Arts and Crafts house was designed by the current occupant’s grandfather and namesake, Detmar Jellings Blow, who was a leading architect of his day.
Detmar Jellings Blow, was “discovered’ by John Ruskin and he drove the cart carrying William Morris to his grave in Kelmscott, dressed in a wagoner’s smock with twisted wheat sheaves on the cart.
In more recent times Hilles House was the home of Detmar and his late wife, Isabella Blow, who is an icon in the international fashion world, muse of Phillip Treacy and credited with having discovered Alexander McQueen, Stella Tennant and Sophie Dahl. The house has entertained many successful people from the art, fashion, film and music worlds, as well as royalty.
