Stanton House - Derbyshire
Stanton House, built in the early 1990’s,
was carefully constructed in a traditional stone style
incorporating interesting features such as internal gutters
to improve the external appearance.
The house uses local Derbyshire stone
throughout the interior, on walls and floors, beautifully
enriched by the interior entirely fitted in mahogany.
Wheathills were asked to provide an appropriate
and sympathetic finish to all internal timberwork giving
maintainable lustre and depth designed to suggest a greater
age without the need to distress the timber.
The work involved traditional finishing
to mahogany including architrave, kitchen and bathrooms,
doors and floors – all made from English Oak sourced
from woodland on the estate.
The finishing process required the use
of traditional earth pigments to create a natural colour,
lemon shellac to polish the woodwork and clear beeswax
