Aluminium Sliding Doors & Bi-Folding Doors Capture Panoramic Views of Dartmoor

A once in a lifetime three bed ‘Grand Design’ home, built to the highest standards, in an exceptional location on the edge of Dartmoor. Every part of the build has been designed to the smallest detail resulting in an elegant yet simple home.


This contemporary three bed house has been named Lowen by the homeowners Dave and Anne Barrow meaning joyful in Cornish.

The new house is a replacement for an existing two storey property that required demolition. In its place the Barrow family were wanting an energy efficient home which complimented its natural setting, making the most of its fantastic views over the moor countryside.

The Project

This exciting, interesting and individual new home is a single storey contemporary development which has been built over three levels. With virtually the whole of the front of the property being glass, the glazing scheme is a very important aspect of the overall design of the property.

The homeowners chose Aspect Windows as its preferred glazing supplier based on our reputation of carrying out bespoke quality projects and aluminium experience. We introduced the family to a high quality, high performance glazing solution, which we felt would be suitable for their property and requirements.


The high performance, minimal aluminium frames, with large glazed areas were used to capture the fantastic views. For functionality, and to open the home up to the outdoors, sliding and bi-folding doors were installed with matching door widths for a uniform feel.

A total of six sliding doors, one bi-folding door and 19 windows were installed throughout the property, by our highly skilled craftsmen. Manufactured in our own factory, which meant we could provide precision engineered products that not only look amazing but exceeded the required performance levels.

All brought together with frames, fascia’s and guttering of the same colour; RAL7022 matt, chosen to complement the stonework.
The new house and outbuildings are a blend of beautiful design combined with the demands for a modern, energy efficient home.

"The whole process has been excellent - I really appreciate the patience you've taken on what is a huge expenditure for a passion project, working with total amateurs! You've always taken the time to answer questions, explain options and crucially, make recommendations when nativity/inexperience clouds our judgement. A real skill and something I personally have really appreciated as I feel confident that we now have windows and doors that complement our house, design and style. Without that level of consultative engagement and relationship I'm confident I would have overlooked details and made a substandard decision. Thank you!"

Mrs Trestain, Padstow

"Just a quick note of thanks to the whole team for our fab windows and doors, we are delighted with both the product and also with the whole fitting process. The lads were brilliant (it's not often you get trades in the house who leave it cleaner at the end of the day than when they arrive in the morning!!) and just quietly got on with the job. Thank you again"

Mr & Mrs Leonard, Exeter

Mr & Mrs Miller, Exmouth

"I wanted to just send my thanks and appreciation. We had an install approx. 6 years ago including some bi-fold doors which in recent weeks appeared to have dropped and became very difficult to lock. I called the office on Monday and a lady took my details and quickly called me back suggesting you had an engineer locally the following day. He arrived and was extremely polite and efficient and diagnosed a broken hinge. He went back to the depot collected the replacement part, then returned to Budleigh and completed the repair. We really appreciate the speed and efficiency with which you dealt with the issue and the ease from a customer perspective. "

Mr Ashby, Budleigh Salterton

"I just wanted to say thank you for the excellent service you have provided in the planning, removal & installation of our beautiful new windows and doors. We were completely amazed & delighted at the speed of which the installation took place and the hard work put in by the installation team. They worked very efficiently and communicated with me at ease through the week so I knew their plans with each room for installation. All the windows & door look great and we have already had lots of compliments. "

Mrs Oakes-Ash, Exmouth

"We would like to thank everyone at Aspect Windows for the fantastic service that we have received on our project. From start to finish, you have been so professional and we are totally thrilled with our sliding doors and our side door. We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone thinking of undergoing a similar project."

Mrs Moores, Templecombe

"We would just like to say how excellent the service has been from Aspect Windows from beginning to end. The salesman could not have been more helpful, we felt completely unhurried and un-pressured. The fitter was also extremely good, he was neat, careful and very respectful of our property as well as being very sociable and polite. Congratulations Aspect Windows on a really good job I wish everything in life could be so straightforward!"

Mr Foster, Exeter

"I had chosen Aspect Windows in Exeter to supply the glazing as they had a good reputation and specialised in aluminium doors windows and curtain walling. Aspect were brilliant throughout the design and fitting process, working to incredibly tight tolerances especially on the curtain walling."
