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!”
On the site of this beautiful family home tucked away in the rural Essex countryside was previously an unused farm and cattle shed.
Mr & Mrs Mason bought the plot in 2012 with the view of converting a tired, old farm into something spectacular for their family. “From the very beginning of the project and what feels like ever since, we have had a torrid time overcoming objections from the local council regarding every stage of our project. It took us quite a while initially to gain approval for the build”, Mrs Mason explains.
To help design their dream home, the Masons brought an architect on board to assist with the plans and drawings. As this was their first project of this kind, having a locally renowned architect on board was essential in providing advice and expertise and gaining approval from the local council.
The land has now been completely transformed, the former farm now replaced with a beautifully proportioned, and excellently styled home, with a generously sized garden for their 5 dogs.
As the Masons had the luxury of designing their home from scratch, Mrs Mason ensured that her new home featured sash windows. “I’ve always loved sash windows, so this house had to have them!”
Luckily, the project’s architect knew precisely where the Masons should turn to for their new windows. “The architect told us, ‘If you want sash windows, then they have to come from Mumford & Wood, no one else can compare.’ Based on that firm recommendation, we felt confident in turning to Mumford & Wood.”
It has now been 8 years since the sash windows were installed in the home, but as Mrs Mason describes “I love the sash windows, they are just as good now as they were from day 1.”
Multiple sets of French doors to the rear of the property as well as a stunning front door complete the look of the new home. The windows and doors did not go unnoticed in the local neighbourhood either as Mrs Mason explains “The front door gives the house a softer look which we were aiming for, and our neighbour even came over to tell us the exact same thing!”
The property also has a guest annex, but with windows and doors sourced from a separate supplier. “One of our biggest regrets was not using Mumford & Wood for the annex. In hindsight, we would have done this in a heartbeat as the windows just do not compare to Mumford & Wood.”
As the Mason’s children have now grown up and have various commitments with work and university, the Masons are exploring the idea of possibly moving to Somerset in the future to downsize. “If we do make that move one day, it will be straight back to Mumford & Wood for the windows there as well!”
