This project highlights the successful collaboration with a property developer who sought our expertise in transforming a house of local interest into a heritage-inspired masterpiece. By utilising our extensive product range, including traditional box sash windows, french wooden doors, casement wooden windows, a bespoke wooden front door, and garage doors, we were able to deliver exceptional results that met the client’s requirements and satisfied the local authority’s regulations. We also supplied heritage Slenderpane glazing units as per the local authority requirements for this project of wooden windows and wooden doors in Harrogate.
House of Local Interest
The client, a property developer, discovered our services through the Accoya website. Recognising our expertise in wooden windows and wooden door solutions, they entrusted us with the task of enhancing the heritage appeal of their project. As the property fell under the category of “House of local interest,” our support extended beyond product delivery, as we provided the necessary drawings for the client’s planning application.
To maintain the historical integrity of the property while incorporating modern functionality, we supplied a range of products constructed from Accoya timber, known for its durability and sustainability.
Traditional Box Sash Windows:
We installed traditional box sash windows with a lead weight mechanism and astragal bars to preserve the heritage aesthetics. The windows were finished in a dual paint color scheme, precisely matched to Farrow & Ball’s Cornforth white on the exterior and standard white on the interior. To complement the overall design, polished nickel heritage locks, sash lifts, and angel vent locks were incorporated. The Slenderpane units were designed to meet the specific requirements set by the local authority. The Slenderpane glazing units featured slim profiles and authentic detailing, allowing for the preservation of traditional aesthetics while incorporating modern energy efficiency and performance standards.
Wooden French Doors and Casement Windows:
In the newly built orangery at the rear of the house, we installed open-out French doors and casement windows. The paint finish of these products was carefully matched to Farrow & Ball’s Cornforth White on the exterior and standard white on the interior. To maintain consistency, the espagnolette door and window handles were chosen from the FromtheAnvil Hinton range in polished nickel. Astragal bars were added to the French doors, ensuring a seamless transition with the original part of the property. Close collaboration with the builders enabled timely completion of the installation, aligning with the project’s construction timeline. Continuing the design language, the casement windows featured the same colour scheme as the French doors and were enhanced with astragal bars for a heritage feel. FromtheAnvil Newbury slimline espagnolette handles in polished nickel were selected to accommodate multipoint locks, ensuring both functionality and security.
Wooden Garage Doors:
For the garage doors, we utilized the Farrow & Ball Cornforth white paint finish, which perfectly complemented the property’s overall aesthetic. To evoke a cottage feel, we incorporated vertical groove insulated panels. Chrome strap hinges and a nickel handle provided an elegant touch, while a full multipoint lock system ensured optimal security.
Wooden Doors in Harrogate:
To create a captivating entrance, a bespoke front door was designed. The door featured a dual-color scheme, with Farrow & Ball’s Stiffkey Blue on the exterior and white on the interior. FromtheAnvil Newbury slimline handles in polished nickel, a polished nickel Dr Door knocker, and a large matching letterbox were carefully selected to enhance the heritage appeal. The customer collaborated with us to design a bespoke lead glass panel for the door and included a flat panel with a large bolection mould around the bottom panelling, adding a touch of elegance.
