Capel Manor House is a small modern steel-framed private house in Horsmonden, in Kent in southern England. It was designed by Michael Manser for John Howard, who had been a Member of Parliament and Parliamentary Private Secretary to Edward Heath. It was built between 1969 and 1970. The house was constructed on the site of, and within the remains of, Capel House, an earlier mansion built by Thomas Henry Wyatt in Italian Gothic style in the mid-nineteenth century and demolished in the 1960s. The architectural writer John Newman describes the Manser house as "a severe Miesian pavilion.":307 The colonnades of Wyatt's winter garden now enclose a swimming pool.:307 The house is an important example of modern architecture in Britain, and in 2013 was designated a Grade II* listed building.
