Tucked away in the depths of the Somerset countryside, this former Sunday school has been converted for residential use by the Walker family.
Believed to be 100 years old, the building is on the grounds of a grand, Listed home and as such, is also protected with a Grade II listing. Alongside the former Sunday school, there is also a former workshop, garage and stable block which have also now been converted and restored by the family.
“We saw the opportunity to convert the buildings into a residential space for our family, which we now occasionally let out for holiday guests as well” Mr Walker comments.
With the buildings all protected with a Listed status, an architect was brought on board by the family to assist with planning and submitting the works, and gaining approval from the local conservation authority.
“Both ourselves and the architect researched potential suppliers for our new windows and doors, which was how we initially discovered Mumford & Wood. We were really impressed with what we saw, and thankfully, everyone came to the same conclusion that the Mumford & Wood products would be most suitable for our project” Mr Walker explains.
“The process set out by the conservation authority was very strict, and there were numerous rules we had to follow to ensure our works would be in keeping with, and preserving, both this structure and the main house on the grounds. But we were delighted when we gained approval for our new windows and doors from Mumford & Wood”.
Putty glazed, sympathetically designed flush casement windows and entrance doors in a stylish Green finish were specified for the property. As part of the building was the old stable block, the new doors have been designed with this in mind, with the panels and glass styled to blend in seamlessly with the architecture of the building.
“We were inspired by the colour from looking around at local properties who also have a similar colour scheme for their windows and doors. It seemed the most appropriate colour to go for, to ensure our property fitted in and enhanced the local area.”
“We have been really impressed with Mumford & Wood and love the helpful, customer focussed approach that they adopted the entire way through the process” Mr Walker concludes.
In London, this astonishing, new-build Georgian style home is the result of Mr & Mrs Gibson’s tireless efforts over the past 4 years.
In 2017, they purchased the original house on the plot and demolished it straight away. “We wanted to build a new family home for us and our young children” Mrs Gibson explains.
Mr Gibson is a professional property developer with an impressive portfolio of award winning homes across London, and has always placed a key emphasis on quality for his projects and in his work.
Following an arduous planning process with their architect, spanning 18 months, the Gibsons ensured that their new home was to their exact specifications throughout. The result of their efforts is a truly spectacular home, featuring beautiful ornate detailing and intricate stonework throughout the property further complementing the Georgian era the Gibsons were inspired by.
As a property developer, Mr Gibson knew exactly who to turn to when it came to ordering the new windows and doors for his home. “For timber doors and windows, Mumford and Wood are in a league of their own. The quality of the product is outstanding and their customer service is first class. A visit to the factory shows this is a long established, quality company with expert craftspeople.”
Towering sash windows finished externally in a colour complementary to Farrow & Ball ‘Mouse’s Back’ were installed across the home. French doors in the same colour finish, as well as impressive single entrance doors in a classic ‘Black’ external finish were also specified by the Gibsons.
“There are cheaper products out there and the industry is full of over promising and underdelivery. For me, anytime I want timber windows and doors it is an easy decision; Mumford and Wood every time. Anywhere else is a false economy.”
“Nowhere in the world makes sash windows and casement windows like the UK, and Mumford and Wood are class leaders!” Mr Gibson comments.
The Gibson family have been living in the home for less than 6 months now and are still finishing up in some areas, but to have achieved such an incredible result in a relatively short period of time, really is a testament to the efforts of the Gibsons and all parties involved in this stunning project.
Mrs Burgoyne is the proud owner of this beautiful Essex home, and shortly following her purchase of the property, has undertaken a large extension and renovation project to put her stamp on the new abode.
“The previous owner had the house for 60 years, so when it came to us, we felt it needed a full renovation and also saw the opportunity to increase its size at the back” Mrs Burgoyne explains.
The home is from the Victorian era, and when the Burgoyne’s began drawing up plans and designs for the works to be undertaken, a local conservation officer got in touch as the property is located in what was described by the officer as “an area of local interest”.
To assist with the various works that needed undertaking, an architect was brought on board by the Burgoynes. As the family were looking for new windows within the renovation, as well as for the new extension at the rear, Mumford & Wood were put forward by the architect.
“We explored a number of options for the windows, including looking at some local companies as well as considering a plastic alternative, but ultimately, we preferred the Mumford & Wood products.”
Given the location of the home, timber was also suggested to be the material of preference by the conservation officer, and so the Burgoynes felt confident in moving forward with the Mumford & Wood range.
At the rear of the home, the new, modern extension has merged seamlessly with the front; traditional features and the period façade have been retained for the authentic Victorian appearance.
Beautiful flush casement windows, including a number of bays and French doors from Mumford & Wood’s Conservation range were specified across the home in a timeless shade of White.
“We have been very impressed with the traditional styling of the new windows and doors from Mumford & Wood, I especially like the new bay windows!” Mrs Burgoyne comments.
“Since their installation and the renovation works have been completed, we have received so many positive comments from friends and neighbours regarding the house and the new windows!”
