Solid Oak Framed Ledged Doors finish an interior in style at the Burghley Estate

A no expense spared restoration of a 19th century dairy building into a stunning holiday home

The Customer

The Burghley Estate is one of the largest and grandest houses of the first Elizabethan Age. Run by the Burghley House Preservation Trust Limited as a charity since 1969, income is raised from charging an admission fee to visitors and running events and other commercial activities at the House.
The project involved a restoration of 19th century dairy building and giving it a new lease of life as a unique and luxurious holiday house. No expense was spared in converting The Dairy into a property capable of accomodating up to 20 guests.

The Dairy has been designed as a comfortable and adaptable living space, a refreshing modern twist on an authentic country house atmosphere.

The project involved a complete structural renovating and refit including only the finest materials.

Heritage solid oak framed ledged and braced doors were chosen, as a great balance between the quality of solid oak, and the period correct styling of the framed and ledged style door.

Bracing packs were added to each door to complete the look and each door was prefinished in clear satin hardwax oil and fitted with high quality hand forged hardware.

Inner boards were specified in the bead and butt profile to give an extra visual dimension and to add interest to the doors.
Refitting an old property means dealing with some unusual doorways sizes. Door were supplied in various custom sizes up to 1115mm in width. All of the doors are a standard 40mm thick, with 2 part laminated frames to ensure complete stability.

Heritage framed ledged doors are made with mortice and tenon joints as standard, the highest quality joint that can be used. Each door is also hydraulically pressed to ensure it has an incredibly strong frame, designed to last for generations to come. Only the best for this project.
