CONSERVATORY ON GRADE II LISTED PROPERTY IN WALES

Client's Comment:

The whole build process went smoothly and David Salisbury were always on hand to speak to. If we move, we will definitely have another one. I cannot recommend them enough: a quality product from a quality firm.

This typical stone period property in southern Wales provided the perfect backdrop for this traditional painted conservatory, designed by one of David Salisbury’s most experienced sales designers, Rupert Miller.

The new conservatory has completely transformed the back of this customer’s grade II Listed home, bringing them a light living space, for enjoyment throughout the year. But the design needed careful consideration and to work in harmony with the immediate environment.

“As our home is Listed, we were worried the local authority would not approve our idea – fortunately, David Salisbury dealt with the planning process on our behalf and obtained the relevant permission, which made it a lot less stressful,” as the customer noted.

Replacing a pond, which took up much of the area at the back of the house, the new extension was built with an adjoining ‘dwarf wall’ in matching stone – with the new timber and glazed conservatory added on top.  The garden table and chairs complement the patio area, which can now be easily accessed via the French doors opening out from the conservatory.  

The glazed roof, a particular feature of a conservatory (as opposed to the perimeter flat solid roof that is a hallmark of an orangery – read the differences between these types of our structures in this previous Blog post) featured solar controlled glass, meaning the room can be enjoyed no matter the time of year.

As the customer noted, “we love our David Salisbury conservatory. It’s the best room in our house. Built 3 years ago now and we use it nearly every day. I can still remember it being done - no fuss and David Salisbury were excellent. Mike Chinn (project manager) was great and so was all the other staff involved from beginning to end. The whole build process went smoothly and David Salisbury were always on hand to speak to. If we move, we will definitely have another one. I cannot recommend them enough: a quality product from a quality firm.”

Here at David Salisbury we have always taken great pride at manufacturing what we firmly believe are the finest quality timber conservatories and orangeries available in the UK. But we also always strive to deliver great service every step of the way.  The “no fuss” comment from this customer was particularly gratifying as this fits well with our objective to deliver excellent service on every project we work on.

We appreciate a decision to invest in a building extension is not one taken lightly – but if you’re considering a new garden room or oak framed building, put your trust in the industry leading team here at David Salisbury.
