This 5 bedroom farm house sits within a quiet spot within the Devon countryside. With easy access to nearby Exeter and local towns. Having been in the family for a number of years, the house was in need of modernizing and expanding to suit the growing families needs.
Sat on the footprint of the original farm house, the property was practically re-built. With the addition of a two storey extension to the front, a single storey extension to the rear and the existing heavy roof raised and replaced with an apex roof to create an additional third floor. Completely transforming the farm house.
Working with their architect large areas of glazing were incorporated into the design. Creating light airy spaces through and picturesque views of the large open garden from the living areas of the house.
Externally the front has been traditionally rendered, with vertical hanging slate on the 2 storey extension. To the rear of the property, the render continues along the first floor of the building. The single storey extension which wraps around the side and back of the house, has been finished in horizontal timber cladding, with solid oak cladding on the corner posts. The solid oak cladding have been made to look like structural oak posts. To match the oak of the existing barn conversion on the side of the house.
The farm house has been finished to a high standard throughout, with extra quality of life features added such as a controlled lighting system throughout the house and an instant boiled water tap.
3 sets of large sliding doors were chosen for the back of the back of the property. The kitchen features a 6 meter wide, triple track sliding door, which allows all three sliding panels to open, giving the homeowners flexibility with how they open the doors. The lift and slide opening mechanisms make the large panes of glass effortless to move.
The living area features two sets of sliding doors around a corner post. With the left hand door opening into a pocket on the external wall; creating a completely open space when opened.
Flush sash aluminium windows were chosen for the windows throughout the house. In a mixture of casement, top hung and fixed openings to suit each individual room. In the new extension to the front of the property a large bay has been created, upstairs and down, with windows on three sides of the room.
RAL 7032, pebble grey was chosen for the windows and doors throughout the property. Which blends perfectly into the building both inside and out.
Having been recommended Aspect Windows by their interior designer, the homeowners are extremely pleased with their new glazing and how smoothly the whole process went.

"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

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
