Summary. A programme of historic building recording was carried out by Colchester Archaeological Trust at Wild Oaks, East Hanningfield Road, Sandon, Essex. Wild Oaks is a sizeable, detached property built in the early Edwardian period. It is built in an Arts and Crafts style, which was popularised in the late 19th/early 20th century. The building exhibits several features synonymous with the Arts and Crafts style including an imitation timber-frame and a roof with various ridge lines. Since construction, the building has had a porch added as well as two extensions and a conservatory. The interior of Wild Oaks also retains some original features, such as the staircase, the cornicing and picture rails. An original timber arch is also present in the ground-floor hall.
