Happy New Year! As 2017 draws to a close and an exciting year ahead beckons, we decided to take a look back at some of our favourite projects completed in 2017.
Higher Poulston Farm, Halwell
Situated in Halwell, Devon, Higher Poulston consists of a complex of renovated barns and new builds. The farmhouse in particular was an exciting challenge, as we had to maintain the character of the building. Therefore, we replaced the old tired softwood windows with woodgrain, White Ash, PVCu sliding sash windows. PVCu is a popular choice due to its properties of being maintenance free and durable. If you are looking for a traditional style, White Ash is often used as it resembles a natural painted finish compared to the usual Brilliant White PVCu. To finish the sliding sash windows, astragal glazing bars were used to give a thin glazing bar effect.
Nr. South Sands, Salcombe
Salcombe is the jewel of the South Hams with spectacular scenery. Perched on the hillside, this property couldn't be in a better location with stunning sea views and the mouth of the estuary. In this instance, frameless glass balustrade to the terraces and balconies was the only option. This created a seamless transition between the patio area and the surrounding views.
Our clients wanted a contemporary style property but with a heritage twist, blending with the buildings in the surrounding area. This new build bungalow in Strete, Dartmouth, has achieved this look by using Heritage Chartwell Green, woodgrain, PVCu. A light and airy feel to the home was accomplished by a wall of full height glass screens and sliding patio doors.
We hope to have given you a little insight and inspiration and look forward to seeing you in 2018.
With our very best wishes for a Happy New Year,
