Time Well Spent in this Oak Orangery

With views like these across the rolling Gloucestershire countryside, who wouldn’t want to spend time in this large oak orangery?
A generous and well-proportioned design by Simon Martin, David Salisbury’s most experienced sales designer, this timber extension has added substantially to the overall footprint of this period property.
Providing abundant space for dining on one side of this oak building extension, a comfortable breakfast or lunch for up to ten people are just some of the possibilities.
At the opposite end of the orangery is a corner sofa group in a contemporary shade of grey, with contrasting grey scatter cushions – just the spot to enjoy the views of the garden and the arable farmland beyond.
Double French doors, manufactured from premium quality oak, provide easy access to the paved patio area, which looks particularly appealing on a sunny day like in these photos.
Oak is such an enduring material that it was first used for constructing buildings in this country in the 1500s – with many of those properties still standing now, that’s testament to the durability of this timber.  You can read more about our love of oak by going to one of our recent Blog posts.
The double lantern roofs – a feature of our orangeries and something we specialise in here at David Salisbury – allow in abundant natural light.
The result is a wonderfully light and relaxed area, with plenty of flexible living space, some wonderful views of the surrounding countryside with the additional benefit of bringing the owners that much closer to their garden. 
Sounds like the perfect outcome for an oak building project – or any extension, whether it be a conservatory or orangery. As Simon noted, “the clients are over the moon with the oak extension and can't believe the difference it has made to their lifestyle. This project exudes quality and is a true testament to what the David Salisbury team can deliver from initial concept to the completed project!”
