Jacobean House

Former Jacobean School morphs through the centuries into an energy efficient family home

Client: Mr and Mrs Welch

The Jacobean House in Burton Latimer, Northamptonshire is a stunning seventeenth century Grade II* Listed building. The primary windows on both floors were draughty and unable to retain heat efficiently. Some of the original ovolo-moulded stone mullions and leaded light casements still remained; so providing a bespoke and sympathetic solution, in keeping with the period features, was paramount. Sightlines were extremely minimal, thus ensuring units were as unobtrusive as possible. A total of 13 secondary units were installed using a combination of the 2 pane and 3 pane horizontal sliders from Selectaglaze’s Series 10 range, which is a discreet solution ideal for heritage properties. Since work has concluded at Jacobean House, the Welch Family have noticed a big difference in the Listed property.  “The secondary glazing units have been a great solution to acoustic and thermal lapses in our home. We have been delighted with the work of the Selectaglaze team throughout the whole process. No job was too big or complicated and the installers did a fantastic job in fitting the glazing. Comments Stuart Welch, proprietor of Jacobean House.
