18th Century Elegance Restored

Beautiful, bespoke joinery seamlessly combining modern innovation with elegant, authentic design.


Sympathetic and exceptionally skilled restoration skills were needed to bring this handsome, eighteen-century property back to life. The finest finishes, glazing and ironmongery were commissioned to ensure the new joinery was as robust as it was elegant.


Doorway design

The glazed door design was based on the existing door, modified in height to complement the adjacent window lines, and finished with a brass kickplate, threshold and locks.

Banham, keyed alike locks (allowing the use of one key for all locks) alongside Anti-Bandit Glass (a laminated glass designed to resist manual attack) were used to ensure that whilst the aesthetic finish was light and elegant, the door would meet exacting security standards.

Arched sash windows

Arched sash windows on the ground floor were replaced with new windows fitted with slim-profile double glazed units which provide all the benefits of modern double glazing whilst keeping the windows looking authentic.

Featuring smaller glazing bars (15mm as opposed to 22mm), a reduced overall glass cost and a longer-lasting glass unit with a lower U (heat loss) value, slim profile double glazed units are a wise choice for listed buildings as a sympathetic design means of introducing contemporary innovation to period properties.

Sash windows and window shutters

Upstairs, bedroom sash windows were diligently restored to their former glory, fitted with draught proofing and finished with new shutters, panelling and architrave.

To ensure authenticity, the shutter design was based on the original shutters from the living room and the mouldings and architrave took their cue from period details of the property. All were handcrafted in sustainable, modified timber, Accoya selected for its durability and dimensional stability, and spray painted in the client’s choice of colour, Brilliant White.
