Red Lion Cottage – Sympathetic timber window & door replacement in Grade II Listed cottage in Amersham

We were recently contacted by the owners of Red Lion Cottage in Amersham, Buckinghamshire to undertake some renovation work at their home. The property is a Grade II Listed Building, so it was imperative that any renovation work retained the property’s character and style.

The project involved replacing all the windows and the entrance door with high quality timber alternatives.  The cottage is now benefitting from secure and energy efficient windows and a stylish new door, and has lost none of its traditional charm.

Project details

Project: Red Lion Cottage – Grade II period property

Products and services – Complete timber window and door replacement including removal of originals

Project overview

After discussing with the owners, we decided to replace the existing windows with traditional Yorkshire sliding sash windows and heritage Slimlite double glazed units.  The windows feature astragal bars which perfectly replicate the original aesthetic.  They function on a horizontal slide system for an easy action and wide opening capacity.  The heritage Slimlite units fit perfectly into the existing aperture without any need for altering the property’s construction.

The door was replaced with a European oak stable door also with heritage units.  The owners opted for a varnished wood finish which tastefully accentuates the natural wood grain.  They chose a stable door for its country cottage aesthetic and because this is what was originally installed when the property was built.  The stable door provides excellent levels of security and ventilation capacity, and is perfectly in keeping with the cottage’s design.
