New England Style in Essex Masterpiece

Product(s) used
Traditional Wooden Box Sash Windows
External Wooden French Doors Made to Measure

Made-to-order wooden windows and doors by Lomax + Wood have been installed in a beautiful new self-build bungalow in the Stour Valley, Essex, once a favourite haunt of artist John Constable.

Home to Rob and Sarah, the design of this single-storey property takes a New England design theme, a particular favourite of the owners. “We love the New England look and wanted to create a property that could accommodate traditional building materials while achieving a contemporary yet cosy and comfortable atmosphere,” says Sarah.

  • Edwardian-style double glazed box sash windows from the Kensington & Chelsea range
  • Co-ordinating open-out French doorsets
  • Higher thermal and acoustic performance
  • On-trend dual colour option
  • High levels of security that meet Doc Q of Building Regulations in new build properties

Security is a major issue for Rob and Sarah and it played a large role in the specification of the Kensington & Chelsea products. “Having been on the receiving end of an ‘unwanted visitor’ in a previous home it is an experience you don’t easily forget,” reflects Sarah. “We can keep the windows open a little without any concern as they have been designed with a self-engaging top sash lock and an angel restrictor. With so many windows and French doors, and all at ground floor level, this gives us great reassurance.” These premium quality timber windows and doors have been tested to meet the rigorous security requirements for Part Q of the new Building Regulations.

Products are delivered to site and factory-finished with three coats of highly durable micro-porous paint as standard, which is available in white and a choice of fashionable heritage colours, as well as stain and dual colour. “The dual colour paint option was a revelation for us and we chose RAL 9003 internally, for ease of interior decoration, and RAL 9001 in cream externally to coordinate with the timber cladding,” says Sarah. “We feel that our windows and doors are unique to us and we had no idea this service was available so we have Lomax + Wood to thank for this facility.”

Sarah concludes: “The service provided by Lomax + Wood was excellent and we are grateful to a friend who introduced us initially. The company provided lots of helpful advice and the few issues we had were dealt with quickly and professionally. We shall certainly recommend Lomax + Wood after the experience we received.”
