Situated on a private estate deep in the Kent countryside, this stunning new build property has replaced the original house on the grounds, and is the culmination of Mr and Mrs Cummings’ dedication and meticulous attention to detail over the past 2 years.
“We purchased the original 3-bedroom house on the site, and moved out of London to buy it. For a time, we lived in the old house, but then moved out for 15 months while the demolition and rebuild commenced” Mrs Cummings explains.
With the clear vision of how they wanted their new home to look from the beginning, Mr and Mrs Cummings brought an architect on board to assist with the drawings and fine details of the build to ensure they were to their exact specifications. For the works, locally renowned construction firm ‘Glenn Lines’ were specified. Holding a very high reputation in the area, the company benefit greatly from word-of-mouth recommendations and were ideal for their vision.
“From the beginning, we knew that we wanted to have sash windows in the new home. Once our builder saw the drawings from our architect, he said the sash windows had to come from Mumford & Wood” Mrs Cummings comments.
She goes on to elaborate “he told us at the time that Mumford & Wood’s sash windows were the best in terms of both quality and appearance, and they are worth investing in for that added quality”.
With this recommendation, Mrs Cummings’ felt confident in specifying Mumford & Wood for her new home. Throughout the property, beautiful Georgian style sash windows feature, as well as an impressive new front door. To the rear of the property, large sets of French doors maximise natural light flowing into the house, as well as the views and connection to the family’s generously sized garden.
“We are delighted that the new windows and doors have lived up to the high expectations set by our builder”.
Over the years, Mumford & Wood have proudly partnered with Chilstone on a variety of projects across the country. Chilstone are manufacturers of beautiful architectural stonework and ornaments, and their expert craft can also be seen across the face of the Cummings’ home. Impressive pillars adorning the new front door as well as intricate stonework and detailing have further enhanced the façade of the property and paid respect to its Georgian inspiration.
