Press Room: Westbury windows ensure Georgian home retains its character

Westbury windows ensure Georgian home retains its character

The owners of an elegant Georgian property turned to Westbury Windows and Joinery when they embarked on a complete renovation project that included replacing existing windows with more energy-efficient ones, without losing the period character.

Energy efficient sash window

The project to update the home included adding a large orangery extension to the rear and a set of French doors leading out from the large open-plan kitchen and dining area.

For the project, the client wanted high-performing, insulating timber windows that would stand the test of time. Westbury worked closely with the homeowner, offering a professional service and taking a collaborative approach to supply them with standard weighted box sash windows sat in recessed reveals.

On the first floor of the property, timber sash windows were installed at the rear with shaped, curved top rails. These rails cleverly follow the line of the existing brick arch in the wall above the window, ensuring that the design perfectly fits with the style of the building.

As well as the French doors added to the rear of the ground floor, two beautifully crafted, inward-opening Juliette French doors were also included to the rear of the property, on either side of the house on the first floor. These doors let in a great deal of natural light into the bedrooms, while bringing a classical charm to the property with a design that balances symmetry and proportion.

The French doors, orangery and sash window on the ground floor were all painted in New Salt Stone, creating a smart finish combined with the polished brass ironmongery.

The orangery was designed, made and supplied by sister company, Westbury Garden Rooms.

The owners can now enjoy their property for years to come while benefiting from modern windows made from the highest quality materials.
