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!”
