A noteworthy project, Doorsan embarked on an ambitious development in Richmond, North Yorkshire. It comprised of multiple outbuildings and the main manor house, all featuring Kensington 6 Panel Traditional Custom-made Oak doors. As a whole, this estate has undergone extensive renovations, which included stripping the main building back to its bare shell. The residence was then restored back to its former glory with all period features replicated throughout. Looking at much of the interior throughout the main home, there has definitely been a traditional approach to the design. Four metre high ceilings command recognition as do the extra deep skirting boards and solid oak parquet flooring. Other mock period features of the main manor house include the striking log burning fires. The oversized bathrooms also appear just as authentic with their decorative paneling or wainscoting as it is widely known.
The doors selected for this project do not let it down, particularly the raised moulding of the Kensington 6 Panel. The American White Oak doors were also pre-finished using Doorsan’s standard AC matt lacquer and over time this will allow the doors to naturally darken and settle into their period surroundings. Florentine bronze flower knobs then complete the effect with locking doors having matching swinging escutcheon plates. How could we also forget the heavy white painted architrave with high plinth blocks to suit the oversized skirting boards?
