Set in the rolling downs of North West Hampshire, this stunning home has been sympathetically built with great attention to period detailing and offers wonderful family accommodation over four floors. Situated in an elevated position the house has far reaching open views across the idyllic Tess Valley countryside.
The bespoke window and door package supplied to this majestic property was supplied semi paint finished with two coats of waterborne microporous paint, spray applied for final paint finishing on site by the contractor. The sliding sash windows, all utilising the traditional method of hanging the sashes on traditional weights, pulleys and ropes are fully draught proofed. The casement windows and external doors use our standard flush fit window and door details. Traditional ovolo decorative beads dress the windows and doors with 20mm astragal glazing bars used to allow 24mm A rated double glazing to be fitted. This method of glazing enables our joinery to be high in thermal efficiency, achieving an overall U-Value of 1.3W/m2K. The imposing cut string staircase, spanning from the ground to second floor was crafted using solid high grade European Redwood with ornate decorative brackets fitted to the underside of each exposed tread. The ground floor flight has an ascending Sapele hardwood volute handrail with the remainder elegantly rising in a continuous manner to the top of the second floor landing. The newels and spindles, specially turned to exact details specified by the contractor, complement the classic interior design used throughout the house. The addition of a large spanning roof lantern above the stairwell acts as a natural lighting solution with centrepiece worthy aesthetics and excellent day-to-day performance. Solid internal doors were constructed for every room in a four and six panel design where applicable. Where fire regulations needed to be satisfied, relevant doors were constructed with a 30min fire resistant masterboard core incorporated within the flat panels.
Yet another masterful collaboration from Sherbourne Developments Ltd and Laburnum Associates, leading developers of classical and traditional rural country houses in Wiltshire and surrounding counties.
