An attractive detached house dating back to the 18th Century, situated on the edge of this historic village of Hurley-on-Thames is one of the latest properties in the UK to benefit from a truly bespoke staircase from British Spirals & Castings; in fact not just one staircase but four!
The homeowners first came across British Spirals & Castings at Grand Designs Live when they started looking for their perfect bespoke staircases and commented “We met Richard, the Managing Director of British Spirals & Castings at the show and very much liked him, and felt confident that we could work with him well. He quickly understood we wanted something truly bespoke, and that we already had a lot of ideas which he assured us he could help develop.”
Richard Harding of British Spirals & Castings commented “They were lovely people to work with who had some fantastic ideas about what they wanted, and with our experience and ability to create something truly unique we created four different staircases for them; The main stairs (straight with a kited bottom section with enlarged dias bottom step), a squarial (spiral but with treads running into the corner of the walls) leading to the master bedroom, a second spiral leading to the home office and finally a straight stairs down to the basement.”
“There were a number of challenges when designing these staircases, as some of the original ideas did not comply with building regulations and it was a very difficult design due to the headroom on the stairs that ran underneath the main stairs. We worked very closely with the owners to get a design which complied with the building regulations yet visually gave them the wow factor they were looking for in their dream home.”All four of the staircases were made from Solid Oak, some featuring glass balustrades supplied by VISTA GLASS, and incorporated a variety of designs including straight, kited and spirals to suit each installation area.
