Stanton House - Derbyshire

Period Property Restoration Of Stanton House

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.

Traditional finishing In Period Property RestorationThe 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.

 Period Property Restoration Of Stanton HallThe 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 to finish.
