History of property

“Old Teign Harvey” is the name of this rather charming family home which was originally built as three adjoining cattle barns in the early 1400s. Owned by a farmer the property had limited accommodation above the barns that were built on a hill but on two levels. In 1975 this quaint thatched property, set in seven acres, was converted fully into a cosy residential accommodation.

Reasons for replacing windows

The original windows were inadequate, not fit for purpose and did not enhance the property. Twenty-two traditional flush casement windows, in dual colour paint finish i.e. white inside and black outside and with period black iron monkey tail handles were installed in the property.

Reasons for choosing Orchard Conservatories, Windows & Doors

Mr & Mrs Bovington carried out extensive research by obtaining six quotations, making enquiries by e-mail and attending various exhibitions. They wanted to employ a reputable company that could not only supply and install their windows but also offer service and support. They also wanted to obtain a particular design of windows that would be in sympathy with the style and age of the property. In Orchard Conservatories, Windows and Doors they found that all their requirements were met in full.


“I found the service and support provided by Orchard from start to finish brilliant. The team of installers arrived on time, on the appointed day and commenced their work so quietly that I hardly noticed that they had started. Nothing was too much trouble for the installers who were very accommodating and who worked with us to ensure that our requirements were met. Orchard did an excellent job and we are very pleased with the windows and workmanship.”[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
