Single-Storey New Build in West Hill Countryside Featuring Bi-folding Doors, Gable Windows and Double Entrance Doors

Making the most of the beautiful Devon setting, by incorporating floor to ceiling glazing.


This beautifully unique home was created by Rural Development Projects, after being instructed by the homeowners, on a corner of the families farm land, in West Hill, Devon.

The Project

The single storey dwelling, has been designed to make the most of the views across a beautifully landscaped garden, out to acres of fields beyond.

In order to make the most of these views, floor to ceiling aluminium glazing was selected for the kitchen, living room and master bedroom, which occupy the symmetrical rear of the property.

On the exterior of the property the aluminium glazing is teamed with a mixture of tier stone walls and chestnut timber cladding, with a zinc roof, creating a contemporary look whilst blending into the properties surroundings.

The glazing accounts for a large proportion of the back of the house, therefore the homeowners were looking for a company that would be reliable, knowledgeable and produce quality products that would compliment their brand new-home. The homeowners choose Aspect Windows after being recommended by their developer.


After a visit to our Exeter showroom, the homeowners were able to experience the different products on offer. Based on their requirements, budget and advice from Aspect Windows consultants they decided upon the products they wanted for their new home, which included; two sets of bi-fold doors, large fixed windows, two gable windows, two sets of French doors, a lantern roof light and two residential doors, one being an impressive double entrance door.

The two sets of bi-folding doors, in the living room, with three-panes in each, allow the family to extend their home out onto the patio area and the views beyond. With a lantern rooflight sitting above, the home is filled with light. One gable window was fitted in the master bedroom, along with a set of French doors and large fixed windows, meaning that the bedroom benefits from a lot of natural light. Allowing the couple to enjoy countryside views from their room all year round and open the French doors in the summer to let in the fresh air. The second gable was fitted in the open plan kitchen/ diner as well as French doors and fixed windows, making this space perfect for entertaining all year round.

The elegant and modern main double entrance door, makes quite the first impression. A second single entrance door, sits on the side of the property, complete with a panel of frosted glass. Traffic Grey – RAL 7043, was chosen for the windows and door frames to complement the stone walls and zinc roof.

Overall, the family have achieved the exact look they envisaged, and absolutely love their new windows and doors.

Our Product Range

"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

"The pocket sliding door and gable look amazing, it’s an impressive bit of kit and it’s a revelation to be able to open the space up! I have to say we’ve been very impressed with all your teams positivity, professionalism and workmanship, from start to finish - so a big thank you…"

Mr Marsh, 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
