Gorgeous Grade II Listed

Childhood home of L.P. Hartley

Built between 1841 and 1847 this Grade II Listed property was the childhood home for novelist L.P. Hartley whose most well-known novel is 'The Go-Between'. The traditional brick building is spread over many levels, has high ceilings and a number of different sized original single glazed windows throughout the house, which rendered it thermally inefficient, cold and draughty. A technical advisor from Selectaglaze visited to make an initial assessment of all the windows that needed to be treated. It was not going to be an easy task, due to the number of different sizes and the composition of the original windows; some metal frame, some wooden. A total of 40 windows have been treated thus far using a selection of three window styles; hinged, sliding and lift-out, in three different colours. A number of windows with working shutters were treated with Selectaglaze's ultra slim Series 47 hinged system which was able to sit tight behind the shutters allowing continued operation. The result is a work of art and is also saving the family money, as Selectaglaze's secondary glazing markedly reduces heat loss and high performance seals almost eliminate draughts leading to lower heating bills.
