Mr & Mrs Munt, Ashvale in Surrey

Mr & Mrs Munt have lived in their chalet bungalow for nearly ten years. They always felt the ground floor didn’t offer enough living space and when the time came to replace their doors and windows, they also chose to install a glazed extension from Sherborne Windows.

“When we moved in, the doors and windows were very old fashioned,” explained Mrs Munt.
“Sherborne Windows were recommended to us by a neighbour. We contacted them and chose white windows and a matching new front door to freshen up the whole house.”

The couple also wanted to add to the ground floor footprint and create a sense of open plan living with a glazed extension. “What was our dining room window was removed and the wall knocked down to make way for an extension, giving the whole house a sense of space,” described Mrs Munt.

“Now the ground floor has been opened up, it feels a much more sociable house. I used to feel cut off when I was in the kitchen for example, but with the new layout now the living space works really well.”

The couple have set up the conservatory as a second lounge, which they enjoy using together and separately, when they want to watch different things on the television or have a friend over for a coffee, without disturbing each other.

“The extension is something we are really enjoying in our retirement,” said Mr Munt. “If I’m not out in the garden, I’m in the conservatory admiring the view of my garden. It’s a wonderful entertaining space we can use all year round. It’s reat that in the winter the glass holds the heat in, and in the summer it keeps the heat out – amazing really. Our favourite time of year is the Farnborough Air Show – the planes come right over the house and we
get a fantastic view through the glass roof.”

Mr & Mrs Munt have been delighted with the service they received working with Sherborne Windows. “We’ve already recommended Sherborne to lots of people,” Mrs Munt told us. “All our friends compliment us on the improvements we’ve made to the house, in particular the impact of the glazed extension. It’s all down to the team at Sherborne Windows – we gave them a rough idea of what we wanted and left the rest to them. The fitters were brilliant and we could tell they took pride in their work. What we’ve ended up with is a beautiful home and a spacious living area, we’re
very pleased.”
