Listed Flush Casement Windows, Entrance Doors and French Doors
This Oxfordshire property is the spectacular home of the Noakes family, who have undertaken huge renovation works in their 7 years of ownership.
With the main house dating to the 1600s, it also has a Grade II Listed status.
When asked about the process of making such changes to the house, particularly the windows and doors, Mrs Noakes explained that having a good architect was one of the key components in the process,
“our architect worked very closely with the local planning officers to understand the requirements, and in the end approval came easily, through being able to demonstrate that we were going to use appropriate windows and doors, and they were products that would last a long time.”
Planning Permission Granted
Replacing old single-glazed windows and doors, the homeowners were successful in gaining approval for our ultra slim, double-glazed products, and as Mrs Noakes comments,
“the planners were very satisfied.”
Flush casement windows were selected throughout, from our Listed range, finished in colours complementary to Farrow & Ball ‘Hardwick White’ externally and ‘Ammonite’ internally, along with a set of French doors and a single entrance door.
Putty glazing and true bars with individual glass units are unique to our Listed range, and are some of the features that have made our products very successful in being accepted as replacements in listed properties.
“Initially we had a consultation at the house from a representative of Timber Windows, and we then made a visit to the Oxford showroom to pin down the details – it was all very easy and straight-forward.”
“Overall, we have been very pleased with everything.”
