Clive Aslet

Adviser on traditional architects and place making

Clive’s knowledge of the English country house and the related history of English architecture is simply unparalleled. He is also an authority on the American country house.

He was hugely successful editor of Country Life magazine for many years, also the author of many leading books on architecture and the wider heritage. His latest is The English House. He is a regular broadcaster and columnist for national newspapers.

He and his wife, with their three sons, divide their time between homes in London and Ramsgate.

Clive believes that ‘home is intensely important, a sanctuary whose soothing powers are all the more essential to inner peace as the world outside becomes daily more stressful.  The choice of sympathetic people to help you create this personal arcadia is critical to the result.  Get it right, and the whole process will be a joy.’
