It is also one of Balcony’s largest curved patio doors installed in the UK and amply demonstrates the spectacular appeal of the product.
“It certainly achieves what we wanted; that is to make the most of views to the garden and we have brought the garden into our home,” said David. “The door is a focal point in the living room where it forms an entire wall at one end. It’s so striking and everyone likes it!
“Now we have fitted the decking the curved patio door really comes into its own. It is never too hot or too sunny and the pleasure of the panoramic view of the garden cannot be over emphasised.”
The door, finished with a RAL 7038 Agate Grey powder coating, was installed as part of extensive renovations to the 300-year-old property, which now comprises three former farmworkers’ cottages in one.
Measuring 9.81m by 2m, the door forms a circular glass ‘wall’ flooding the living room extension with light. Directly above is a bedroom topped with an Oast House-effect pointed roof with glass apex that casts light into the room below.
The circular shape was originally designed with oak uprights, but the plans changed once the couple saw Balcony’s curved patio door at the Grand Designs show and that sealed the deal for them.
“The price was right - and quite competitive - for what is a totally bespoke job,” added David. “The door is so dramatic and there really is nothing quite like it on the UK market.”
David and Lynn are now planning to fulfil their dream of a complete new self-build project and have put their four-bedroom home on the market at £675,000.
