Flavour of the past

Home to the Oakley family, this late 1700s Oxfordshire farmhouse has undergone a substantial overhaul.

Purchased from the original farming family three years ago, the Oakley’s set about making this outstanding home, suitable for modern living.

“The house has been gutted throughout, and the doors were the main items that needed attention due to their poor condition.”

Authentically Matched

Replacing like-for-like where older examples existed, the homeowners have ensured that their new doors, give the right flavour of the past while functioning to today’s standards.

The front door was selected with heritage in mind; everything from the bolection mould details to the bronze finished ironmongery give the perfectly authentic aesthetic.

“The old French doors had to go, they were uPVC, flimsy and simply not in keeping with the house.”

Chosen carefully to coordinate with original sash windows, all the items are finished in the shade of ‘Straw’ with appropriate hardware for that period, authentic feel.
