A project steeped in history
Quickslide recently supplied heritage windows and doors for the redevelopment of the historic Featherstone Hall, the last of four great houses that once dominated the Yorkshire village of North Featherstone near Pontefract
Over the past two years, Featherstone Hall and its surrounding grounds have been transformed into 15 contemporary family homes, each reflecting the prominence and grandeur of the historical area. The hall itself has been converted into three period family homes, while the sympathetically restored coach house is now a detached three-bedroom home.
And there are 11 new, detached family homes, each designed in keeping with the same classic feel.
Quickslide provided 222 products for the development, including PVCU sash windows, sliding patio doors, bifold doors and Solidor composite doors, all in anthracite grey for a contemporary twist on the period look.
Developer Brebur chose Quickslide because it offered the best quality products within the right price range, when compared to similar products on the market, the company said. The developers particularly commended Quickslide’s sliding sash for being robust and exuding style and quality once installed. Brebur also praised Quickslide’s easy and helpful buying process.
“A project like Featherstone Hall showcases all the things we excel at,” Ben Weber, Quickslide’s managing director, said. “Quality, contemporary windows and doors that bring all the benefits of modern PVCU to the traditional, beautifully aesthetic window designs of the past.
“We launched our flagship Legacy VS in 2019 – a window that set new standards of authenticity and quality for PVCU vertical sliders – as part of our £2 million investment programme to ensure we can continue to look forward to offering our customers more of the innovative, stylish products that home owners will delight in.”
