In a village on the edge of the South Downs National Park, Mr. & Mrs. Mitchell bought their property in January 2016 and embarked upon a renovation project.
“The previous owners had lived there for 35 years and property needed gutting – we could see the potential in the plot and the garden here”.
“The only thing that we kept were the bricks; walls were knocked down, the roof was replaced and the original windows and doors, that had secondary glazing were also replaced”.
The neighbours has alerted Mr. & Mrs. Mitchell to the location specific factors that affected their houses, “due to being at the bottom of a valley, we were told that houses were often draughty and cold, but we can assure you that we’ve not been cold at all with our new windows!”
“We made a visit to our local Timber Windows showroom in Horndean, we liked the products we saw and loved the idea of using a local, family run company”.
Flush casement windows were chosen in a dual colour finish, with French Grey externally and White internally with a dark lead finish. The front door and stable door have the same painted finish as the windows. The front door is a Staverton design, featuring Queen Anne leaded glass and a Shakespeare door knocker.
“We were impressed with the guarantees available on the products and we could get them in the colour we wanted – we are really pleased with the products, and they’ve let so much light in to the house”.
