Following the purchase of this grand private residence in the Cambridge countryside, the new homeowners saw the potential it had straight away and wasted no time in undertaking a complete remodel and renovation of their new home.
As part of the works, a large extension was added to the rear of the property, including a new kitchen, dining space and living areas that have dramatically improved the natural light flowing into the property, as well as greatly increase the square footage and overall value of the home.
Alongside the extensive works to the main structure, a new outbuilding has also been built and contains within it a games room and recreational space for the homeowners to enjoy and entertain.
“The homeowners brought us on board to help plan, manage and undertake the extensive works they specified. In total, this project has taken us around 18 months and I think we can all agree the end result is fantastic” comments William of RM Construction in Cambridge, the main contractors for the project.
“We have worked with Mumford & Wood a few times in the past and they are often specified by architects that we work with for other projects” William explains.
Across the new extension at the rear of the property and for the new outbuilding, a selection of Mumford & Wood French doors, flush casement windows and sash windows were specified. The new products are all in a similar style and colour finish to the originals in place at the front of the property.
“The new windows and doors arrive on site fully finished and ready for installation which saves a lot of time and we have always been impressed with this”.
“The clients spoke to us recently about how happy they are with the works that were undertaken and their new windows and doors. They particularly enjoy how their new French doors have given them better access and greater views of their stunning garden” William concludes.
This beautiful, large family home in Buckinghamshire is owned by an interior designer, who has spent a considerable amount of time extending and remodelling the property, to her exact specifications. “The idea for the new look started with the staircase; we wanted it to be the centre piece and so everything was designed and built around it” the homeowners explains. Originally, the property was of a very traditional style, a look that the homeowner was keen to maintain at the front, with a contemporary extension added to the kitchen. To assist her with the designs and works, construction specialists, Coleman Myers were brought on for the project. “The house had sash windows in originally and with the supplier of these having ceased trading and the products reaching the end of their life, I wanted to replace them as part of the works. I wanted the windows to be of the same high specification I had set out throughout the house, and so the builders connected me with Mumford & Wood, having worked with them previously.” Ensuring that the new sash windows were faithful to those they were replacing and complemented the traditional look the homeowner sought, they feature a traditional glazing bar formation, decorative sash horns and are finished in a timeless shade of White. A large set of French doors in the same style were also installed at the rear of the property, maximising natural light and opening their living space onto their beautiful garden. “I was initially concerned that the new windows and doors would perhaps be too plain, however, they look absolutely right, and I am delighted with them” the homeowner concludes.
These impressive, classically styled new build properties in Oxfordshire were originally a single cottage sitting on a large plot of land, that was purchased by developer, TwoTwo Projects Ltd in 2017. “Following the purchase, we planned to maximise the value and size of the plot, by replacing the bungalow with two generously sized family homes” comments Michelle. TwoTwo Projects are renowned across Oxfordshire, often in high demand due to their reputation for their high-quality work and attention to detail. Following the purchase they spent time ensuring their designs were exactly how they wanted them before submitting for planning approval. With Michelle also being a fashion designer, her attention to detail and stylistic approach has clearly shown throughout these new homes. Having specified Mumford & Wood on a previous project, TwoTwo were keen to return for this new development. As the most appropriate choice for this architectural style, traditional sash windows with fine astragal glazing bars and decorative sash horns were installed across both homes. Their timeless design is a perfect accompaniment for both the white render of the first property, and the traditional red brick façade of the second. Both properties were listed for sale in October 2019, with one being eagerly snapped up and occupied only 2 months later. The second property was also sold in July 2020 with the new owners moving in shortly after. “We have been very happy with the new windows from Mumford & Wood, as are the new residents? We will continue to use them on our future projects and recommend them to others.” Michelle concludes.
