Conversion of former Chapel

As a former chapel, built in 1841 and converted for residential use in the 1990s, the charming home of Mr & Mrs Sherwood sits within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Yorkshire.

“We had a fairly blank canvas to work with owing to the inappropriate white uPVC windows that were to be replaced and our home’s unconventional history”

Mr Sherwood comments.

Winterbourne entrance door finished in a colour complementary to Farrow & Ball ‘Card Room Green’ with Etched Star glass and manufactured in Engineered European Redwood. The door also features a black Cottage handle, Doctors knocker and Blacksmith Traditional letterbox.

Stunning new timber windows and doors

The owners chose a collection of flush casement windows finished in French Grey externally and White internally, with 18mm astragal bars.

In addition, a striking Winterbourne front door was selected in a colour complementary to Farrow & Ball ‘Card Room Green’, coupled with black ironmongery.

“We made these choices to suit the history of the house and the stone finish.”


“We believe in doing things to a house that are in keeping with its history.”

“Visiting the Harewood showroom was a pleasant experience and we enjoyed making our choices.”
