Set in the grounds of the former Manor House in West Malling, this stunning new development from Taylor Wimpey has plenty of wide-open spaces for residents to take advantage of. From the renovated walled gardens to the nature walk and playgrounds around the development, this prime location has it all covered.
Whilst predominantly a modern new build development, the site contains a number of historically significant Grade II Listed buildings which are being retained and converted into new residential housing. The existing buildings including the Clock Tower, Gardeners Cottage, and the stunning Manor House are to be reimagined internally creating stunning exclusive residential homes. As a condition of planning consent and in line with local conservation conditions, these buildings are to be brought back into use and repaired in a sympathetic manner, ensuring that the original character and heritage of the buildings are maintained.
Arden windows, as a key part of Taylor Wimpey’s supply chain for timber windows and doors, were approached by Taylor Wimpey and their architects with the brief to develop a truly bespoke window solution. One that not only meets the conservation requirements in terms of aesthetics of the windows and doors, but that also meet the current UK building regulation requirements and NHBC standards. Working from the architect’s detail drawings and photographs of original fenestrations and section details, the Arden design team were able to recreate an almost identical window and door solution fully meeting the conservation aspects of the project. The final product reflects the intricate profile sections and glazing bar details whilst also achieving the thermal and security requirements of the project.
Arden manufactures windows and doors from engineered softwoods and hardwoods at their state of the art factory in Coventry. The 73,000 sq ft production unit incorporates leading-edge fully adaptable CNC machinery alongside time served skilled craftsmen, a winning combination that allows them to produce fully bespoke products on a volume scale.
