5 Metre Sliding Door Helps Dartmoor Property Enjoy the View Over the Moor


Located on the edge of Dartmoor. Originally built in 1992/93; sat an individually designed 5 bedroom home that was in need of modernising.

The Project

Whilst renovating the property, the new owners were looking to also make the most of the fantastic views out over the moors.

Having worked with Aspect Windows on other projects the builder recommended us to the homeowner for their glazing.

Upstairs the skylights were replaced by dormer windows. This not only created additional headroom in the bedrooms but also opens the upstairs up to the spectacular view of Dartmoor that the property enjoys.

Downstairs the small, dated garden room with restricted views, was replaced with a large glazed contemporary extension. Allowing views of the moor and the garden to be enjoyed from 3 sides.


Slim and contemporary aluminium windows were chosen for the new dormer windows. A picture window was chosen for the largest dormer window above the stairs. This frames the view perfectly as you walk downstairs. The other windows in the house were also replaced, ensuring a consistent and contemporary feel throughout.

The new contemporary extension features a large 5 meter sliding door, on a double track configuration. The sliding door provides minimal sight-lines, ensuring the view isn’t interrupted. The door can be effortlessly opened, thanks to the lift and slide opening operation, blurring the boundaries between inside and out.

On each side of the contemporary extension there is a mixture of full height windows and French doors, that can be opened fully back. Allowing the light to fill the room and the view beyond to be enjoyed from every angle. Creating a fantastic living area which can be enjoyed year round.

Solar control glass was chosen, which allows the sunlight to pass through the window whilst reflecting away a large degree of the sun’s heat, helping to keep the house cool in the warmer months.

The colour chosen for the windows and doors is RAL 7016 – anthracite grey. Creating a contrast with the white render, whilst the grey roof tiles help tie it all together, delivering a contemporary look for the renovated property.
