Timeless Sash Windows were contracted by Pat Wigglesworth to restore the 53 windows throughout this property to their original glory.
“We had to do everything,” says Pat Wigglesworth, “We replaced the roof, all the heads above the doors, all the heads over the fireplaces. The central core was completely gone – in and around the stairwell. The original designed stairs were burnt and gone since 1910. We had to re-instate all of that, while protecting and repairing the ceilings. All the cornices have been repaired. The external brickwork has been repaired. The main entrance portico is being repaired. All the windows and surrounds have been repaired by Timeless Sash Windows – and are working. What astonishes people is that not only are the windows repaired and working, but also the shutters. We have had a few interior designers in and we were talking about hanging curtains, but the shutters are working so we don’t need curtains. In their day in the 1750s, they never hung curtains – they just used the shutters” says Pat.
