House history

WESTON, built in 1927, is an Arts and Crafts, Grade II listed landmark building. One of Lutyens’ last commissions, the country house was built for Sir Alfred Downing Fripp, Surgeon to King Edward VII. Lutyen is more commonly known for his larger-scale projects such as the British Embassy (Washington) and Viceroy’s House (New Delhi).

Famous visitors to Weston have included Sir Lawrence Olivier and Vivien Leigh, who stayed at Weston during their honeymoon. A sympathetic restoration of Weston has recently been taken to its completion by the current owners Rufus and Sunita Knight-Webb, ensuring that Weston’s grandeur endures and can be appreciated for generations to come.

Enjoy the beauty of Weston’s recent refurbishment whilst also appreciating the magnificent details of Lutyen’s design, including a statement door with classic portico and Tuscan columns in timber, a spectacular scissor staircase and stunning open fire places.

Securing a breathtaking rural cliff top location, Weston house offers guests gorgeous views of the Jurassic coastline. Elevating to three floors with a garden that can be reached from both the ground and first floor, our Lulworth holiday home makes the most of the sloping hill on which it was built.
