Yesterday we shared the news of an exciting new build home in which The Shutter Studio team were fitting plantation shutters in Keston Park, the exclusive private residential estate enviably positioned between the local towns of Bromley, Orpington and Biggin Hill. Today we are delighted to share some stunning images of the work we carried out at this magnificent new property.
Our first meeting with the client enabled us to gather a detailed description of the type of shutters they were looking to install. Having received this information our Managing Director, Adam Allsop, took their ideas and developed a shutter solution that exceeded expectations. Due to the scale of the windows at the property, our structural engineer specifically designed the shutters to span the complete width of the windows without a single break, allowing nothing but louvres to be seen from the exterior of the building.
Keston Park is a gorgeous property development that dates back to the 1920s, when visionary property developer Frederick Roger set out to create a residential development on a large section of woodland purchased from the Earl of Derby’s expansive estate near the Kent village of Locksbottom. Rogers’ vision for the development was based around restrictive covenants that would ensure the size and design of each property and the landscaping of the land they sit on would respectfully complement the surrounding landscape.
The desirable private estate still adheres to the covenants Rogers set out when establishing Keston Park and the gorgeous properties on the site today are some of the most desired in Southeast England. Our plantation shutters make a stylish addition to these already elegant homes, keeping rooms bright and airy during the day, providing security and keeping out unwanted light overnight.
