Harewood Estate farmhouse in Chapel Wold in Kearby, Yorkshire has been sympathetically restored and converted into a luxurious family home by a local developer, Andas Homes. When it came to the vertical sliding windows for the project, there was only one choice: the Vertical Sliding Sash Window System from Epwin Window Systems fabricated by leading award-winning Yorkshire manufacturer Quickslide.
Andas Homes has worked with Quickslide on several premium, heritage projects for a number of years, so the company was the obvious choice for this project too. The aesthetically authentic, yet highly efficient Vertical Sliding Sash Window System from Epwin Window Systems brought the heritage and luxury that such a prestigious project required, while Quickslide’s expertise and experience brought even more value.
Andas Homes’ designer Holly Simpson said. “Chapel Wold is a luxury, sensitive renovation, which draws out the character of the existing buildings and breathes new life into their timeless traits. We love the quality and performance of Quickslide’s sliding sash windows, in particular the run through sash horns which make the frame so authentic.”
Andas Homes opted for a bespoke colour frame for the project. Quickslide worked with colour coating specialists Kolorseal, to achieve the required hue, which was a specific shade of light grey that would complement the pinky tones of the property’s traditional Yorkshire stone walls and slate roof. Kolorseal’s expertise ensured outstanding colour quality and accuracy on every frame.
Ben Weber, Quickslide’s Managing Director, said: “This luxury development at Chapel Wold is just the latest example of how our sash windows are transforming home design. Glazing elements are now so much more than just building products. They add value and personality to the very fabric of home building and are an integral and crucial consideration in the internal and external design of a home.”
Katrina Earl, Sales Director at Epwin Window Systems, concluded: “Our Vertical Sliding Sash Window System is renowned in the industry for its ability to combine outstanding heritage aesthetics with modern-day thermal efficiency and security. This project epitomises the quality of our system combined with the manufacturing expertise of the Quickslide team to transform this stunning property.”
