Mr & Mrs Pinder live in their historic home just outside of Harrogate, North Yorkshire; a property with a fascinating past. Starting life as 2 cottages and an undertaker’s workshop, they were built in the local red sandstone during the 17th Century. It remained as two separate properties until the late 1950’s when a wealthy mill owner bought and converted them to a very high standard, into a single home. A year later when the property was nearing completion, the mill owner’s wife decided that it was just too far from the city of Leeds and consequently they never moved into the converted property.

Exposed to the elements

“The house is south west facing and is very exposed to the elements. Over the years preceding the replacements, some of the windows were showing signs of wear and tear, and were constantly needing repairs and painting; they were rotting and were draughty” explains Mrs Pinder.

Throughout the property, a substantial number of flush casement windows, arched windows and those with gothic astragal bars, along with a new front door were installed, with the following second phase consisting of ten sash windows. All have been finished in a colour complementary to Farrow & Ball ‘Fawn’ externally with various other colour matches used internally to suit the décor of the individual rooms.

First Class Installation

The homeowners were originally recommended to visit their local showroom, and they have since suggested several of their own friends do the same,

“A friend recommended we look at Timber Windows at Harewood; we are glad that we did because they had the right products and we felt confident in the company’s ability to deliver a first class installation.”

“The windows and doors are all fantastic – we’re delighted with them. We’ve lived with some of them for 5 years and they still look and work lovely. The front of the house is on a fairly busy through road, and the noise has been reduced greatly by the windows.”
