Beautiful sliding doors bring the outside into this charming country home

Iain Jamie has worked in the property sector for many years, so he had a good idea about how he wanted to improve his gorgeous 18th-century country home.

The Suffolk house has beautiful gardens with a far-reaching rural outlook, and his new ground-floor extension needed to make the most of the views.

A stylish and contemporary extension was built on the back of the home with a seven-metre wide opening leading straight out to a delightful patio and the rear garden.

Iain approached The Burgess Group to discuss his options for making the most of this feature.

The result? Our secure, slimline aluminium sliding doors with three large panes glide effortlessly along a triple-track system. With this option, two-thirds of the space can be fully open at any time, depending on your preference.

“We’re absolutely thrilled with the result,” explained Iain. “The panoramic views over the garden and surrounding countryside, the quality of the doors, and their appearance looking back at the property.

“They have the real wow factor.”

Flooding the home with natural light

As these charming photographs show, the result is incredible, truly bringing the outside into Iain’s home so that the garden can be enjoyed no matter the weather or the time of year. In the summer, it seamlessly extends the living space into the garden. But in the colder months, the doors keep the inside toasty warm while flooding the interior with natural light and providing a beautiful outlook.

Such was the success of this project that Iain’s property was featured in an issue of the glossy Suffolk Magazine.

Our aluminium sliding doors are increasingly popular, as is the selection of bi-fold doors that makes the most of your views outside.

We have numerous styles, including ultra-slim doors with incredible sightlines and pocket sliders where the doors slide away, hidden inside the wall for that truly open space feeling.

We even provide open-corner doors, which give the appearance of a never-ending room and are a super idea for new builds or extensions (we’re used to working alongside architects and interior designers on out-of-the-ordinary projects).

Are you looking to improve your home with beautiful new windows or doors? We’d love to see you. Our team can offer advice about styles and colours, and if you visit our showrooms, you can experience the quality of our products for yourself.
