Slim Box Sash Windows and Timber Entrance Door
Retaining the character and style of their Victorian 3-storey, semi-detached home near Worcester, was very important to Mr & Mrs Baker.
The house was built in 1886 and is very typical of Victorian architecture with ornate mouldings and details – the original windows were still in place after some 130 years.
“We’d lived with the original windows for a long time, however they were beyond bearable.”
“The bedroom window was so rotten, that every winter we used to go sleep in the spare bedroom on the top floor of the house.”
Matching the originals
The windows are an exact match for those that they replaced. The homeowners opted for slim box sash windows finished in White and manufactured in Engineered European Redwood.
“The front door that was here when we moved in didn’t even fit, it was really bodged together using odd bits of wood to keep it in place.”
Mr & Mrs Baker chose a Chadlington design door in ‘Oxford Clay’ with a ‘White’ frame featuring a sandblasted glass toplight and etched house number, along with chrome ironmongery.
“The door looks delightful, and is my favourite part of the changes”
Mrs Baker concludes.
