Sash Windows in Wentworth, Virginia Water

Wentworth in the village of Virginia Water is home to some of the most exclusive properties in Surrey. The collection of homes from 1920s that make up the Wentworth Estate sit nestled within woodland surrounding the Wentworth Golf Club – the home of the first Ryder Cup.

Homes in the estate are a mix of architectural styles spanning from Neo-Georgian to ultra-contemporary homes, with key influences from the Arts and Crafts movement also evident. These include features such as tall chimneys and handmade bricks and tiles.

The Arts and Crafts movement was most prevalent between 1880 and 1910 – a time where sash windows also took pride of place in homes across the UK.

For homeowners in Wentworth who are keen to bring their homes into the 21st Century while still weaving influences from the architectural past, installing new sash windows could provide the ideal solution. Here’s why:

New sash windows can pay homage to the old

While your new sash windows will be created using the most up-to-the minute specifications in terms of design, safety and security, they can also be designed to mirror the era of your choice.

Sash Windows in the latter part of the 19th Century were influenced by both the Arts and Crafts movements and The ‘Queen Anne’ movement – a revival of the English Baroque style that was prevalent under the reign of Queen Anne (1702 – 1714).

Key features of sash windows across both periods included:

  • Painted sash windows in boxes flush with the wall
  • Oak frames
  • Small pane sash windows

Sash windows are a stylish addition to any home

With their traditional design and classical proportions, sash windows can act as the perfect stylish addition to both heritage and contemporary homes. Bespoke detailing also means that whatever your interior preferences you can craft a sash window look that is just right for you.

With 7 square kilometres of woodland and housing to admire across the Wentworth Estate sash windows can also act as the perfect frame for your picturesque surroundings. What could be better?
