Alderney Road, Pimlico
Located in the center of Pimlico this beautiful Victorian property featured single glazed windows that desperately needed attention. Originally the client was looking into repairs but after a number of expensive quotes they decided to go ahead with full replacements. The property fell into a conservation area so the client assumed replacing their windows and doors may be tricky. With a wealth of experience in London conservation areas Sash Windows London were appointed the work. After a number of conversations with the planning department it was agreed by all the heritage range options would be the best suited for the project. Our heritage range timber sash window, with its classical flush line appearance has been specifically designed for listed buildings, Edwardian country estates, Victorian townhouses and where conservation approval is required so the perfect choice for this property.
The Heritage Sliding Sash is sympathetically designed to maximize glass areas and retain the properties historical internal features. The Flush French door was chosen for the rear of the property to compliment the sash windows selected.
The large pane sash windows and doorsets are totally authentic of traditional Victorian window design and their floor-to-ceiling heights meet the immense scale of these spectacular rooms. An elegant double French door with overhead fanlight leads to a picture-perfect balcony all adding to the natural light throughout the property.
Sash Windows London’s windows and doors are manufactured from sustainably sourced certificated timber which is engineered for maximum strength and stability. They are fully factory finished with three coats of water-based, spray applied, micro-porous paint or stain as standard which contributes to longer maintenance cycles, and are available in a wide range of RAL and heritage paint colours. A duo-colour finish is also available. Products are internally glazed for improved aesthetics and security and many products are Secured by Design.
The history of Pimlico
According to tradition, it received its name from Ben Pimlico, famous for his nut-brown ale. His tea-gardens, however, were near Hoxton, and the road to them was termed Pimlico Path, so that what is now called Pimlico was so named from the popularity of the Hoxton resort.
