Striking double front door for former Edwardian pump house

Timber Polstead double front door with sidelights and toplight, featuring 18mm astragal glazing bars and Samuel Heath antique brass unlaquered furniture.

This former Edwardian pump house on the Suffolk coast had sat derelict for many years, before being lovingly restored and converted to a residence 30 years ago.

Now home to Mr & Mrs Baines, we were delighted to be commissioned to replace the entrance doors on such a beautiful and historic building.

With a brief to pay tribute to the industrial past of the building, we designed a double front door to do just that, whilst at the same time increase the light and ensuring a high level of security and thermal efficiency.

Before door

The new installation is a timber Polstead double front door design with toplight and sidelights, finished in a colour complementary to Farrow & Ball ‘Studio Green’. To complete the design, 18mm astragal glazing bars were incorporated and a Samuel Heath antique brass unlacquered ring knocker, contour shoulder handle and medium sized letter plate was chosen.

Of the result, Mrs Baines said:

“I adore the fact it lets in so much more light, and it’s much easier to use now too.

Overall, I am delighted to have been able to enhance my home, and give it the character it deserves!”

In addition to their striking new entrance, we enhanced Mr & Mrs Baines’ property further still with French doors, French windows, a casement window and a stable door, all from our timber range, as you’ll see in the gallery below.
