The Priory

Medieval household hiding ancient priory ruins enriched with secondary glazing

Client: Mr and Mrs Saunders

The Priory is a beautiful Grade II Listed residence in the village of Blythburgh, a settlement of probable Saxon origin.  The task of making the Priory a comfortable home for the Saunders family was paramount. One issue was heat retention as most of the primary windows were draughty and allowed heat to escape. Selectaglaze installed 15 units comprising of the Series 10 - 2 and 3 pane horizontal sliding units, finished in either walnut or black matt. The Chapel windows were treated with white Series 45 single side hung casements with a gothic arch to match the opening. The Saunders family were so impressed with the secondary glazing, that they ordered more for The Priory.  A further 16 units were ordered and installed – a combination of the Series 10 - 2 and 3 pane horizontal sliding units.  The Saunders family are extremely happy with the upgrade in thermal efficiency in their home. “It can be a fine balance preserving the heritage of the house whilst making it a comfortable family home. Selectaglaze has helped make this possible and we were grateful to be draught free when the Beast from the East hit us earlier this year.” Chiara Saunders.
