Located in the London Borough of Hillingdon, the prestigious Northwood was voted one of the top 20 wealthiest suburbs in the UK by The Daily Telegraph.
Backing on to Northwood golf course, Kings Oak House is immaculately finished, boasting 7 bedrooms, 8 reception rooms, gym, sauna and cinema room.
Graefe bespoke internal doors were chosen throughout the property, adding to the elegance and grandeur. Handpicked by the client, the different veneer species and finishes reflected the style of each room.
Julian Smith of Kingshall Estates managed the project. Julian chose Graefe for the project because, ‘They (Graefe) looked like they could achieve the design and finish we were after that fit within our budgets.’
Producing premium real wood veneer products since 1837, Graefe’s skilled craftsmanship and use of the highest quality raw materials has earned them a reputation for unrivalled quality.
American White Oak in three different finishes was chosen for the property in a mixture of single, double and sliding doors. The basement doors leading into a lounge/bar area, cinema room and gym were in Graefe’s Pembroke design which features a recessed central panel and raised beading, painted in grey with the beautiful wood grain visible through the paint.
Bedroom doors were also in Graefe’s Pembroke design. Crown cut veneer was book matched with recessed panels and styles and rails to put a modern twist on a traditional panelled door. The doors were whitewashed to a luxurious finish which was mirrored throughout the entire top floor.
Various connecting doors, including those for the bathroom and laundry room were flush, painted in either white or grey.
The doors were the finishing touch to the lavish modern build. Julian concluded, ‘We were very happy with the finish, the overall quality was very good. I would recommend Graefe as a company and will use their products again on further projects.’
