Three New Build Properties, Shiplake
Built on the site of one original property, these homes were built and refurbished to a very high standard using our bespoke joinery components.
The original house still stands in the centre of the plot, with the two new builds flanking either side. The new builds are both contemporary in design, whereas the refurbished property was kept in its original form where possible.
This long standing client of ours carried out a distinguished job in refurbishing the original property back to its authentic state by keeping the original Sash Windows, but focused more on the stand-out features like the front door and the impressive Hardwood Orangery extension on the rear of the property.
This addition to the property extends the already generous kitchen into a large living area, awash with light from the large hardwood glazed conservatory roof and a wide expanse of bi-folding doors opening out on to the garden. The property was also extended into the loft, meaning the original staircase balustrade had to be matched to suit. A sample of the newel and baluster where brought back from site for us to replicate and reproduce on the new flight.
The two new build properties used our Part Q tested 'Concealed Balance Sash Windows' and 'Cheriton Front Doors'. The windows were fully finished in our standard White, whilst the doors were finished in a contrasting Farrow and Ball Down Pipe Grey equivalent.
The doors used our new security tested Georgian locks, providing the classic look of a traditional Night Latch but with the 21st century security features of a multi-point locking system.
These new build homes both had staircases extending from the Ground to Second floor, but were a more modern Stop Chamfered design balustrade on an American White Oak 'Closed String' staircase. The large feature newel posts also included flutes on the faces to give a little extra flair to these simple yet effective staircases.
