What was originally a chapel built in 1841, Mr and Mrs Sherwood’s stunning home sits with an area of outstanding beauty in Yorkshire.
Though their home’s history dated back to the 1800’s, in the past its windows had been modified in favour of white uPVC windows which simply did not fit with the style of the home. As a result, Mr and Mrs Sherwood felt it necessary to replace the windows for something more fitting of its period. Mr Sherwood comments, “We had a fairly blank canvas to work with owing to the inappropriate white uPVC windows that were to be replaced and our home’s unconventional history”.
When it came to design, the couple chose a collection of stunning flush timber casement windows finished in the colour ‘French Grey’ externally, and ‘White’ internally, with 18mm astragal bars.
Additionally, a Winterbourne entrance door was selected in a colour complementary to Farrow & Ball ‘Card Room Green’, which was couples with black ironmongery. This was a striking new addition to the front of the home, and was noticed immediately by passers-by.
It was important to Mr and Mrs Sherwood that their new windows and door reflect the vibrant history of the house and our team successfully achieved that by working with the couple every step of the way to ensure their vision was brought to life exactly as they wanted it. “We believe in doing things to a house that are in keeping with its history and the final choices suit the history of the house and the stone finish”.
“Visiting the Harewood showroom was a pleasant experience and we enjoyed making our choices”.
