Standen, is an Arts and Crafts house in Sussex. Designed by Philip Webb, who also built The Red House in Bexley, for William Morris.

I hope to return in the summer when there is more to see in the garden. The house has an excellent display of textiles, ceramics and metalwork from the arts and crafts period, lots from William Morris, some ceramics by William De Morgan and metalwork by W. A. S. Benson.

Standen was a family home for the Beale family. Built in the 1890's.
