Stoneyhill House is a listed building dating from the mid/late 18th century and is described by Historic Scotland as ‘a small mansion with high walled garden to south and west, access through segmental arched vehicular and foot gateways with high walled garden to south and west with access through segmental arched vehicular and foot gateways with solid timber doors’.
Given the historical significance of this building we were delighted to be commissioned to replace the gates. MadebyOrocco were very successful in creating replicas of the existing gates which are very much in keeping with the historical nature of this property.
The gates were constructed from finest Accoya timber which is a high-performance modified wood that was chosen for its exceptional quality in widely varying environmental conditions around the world. It is checked and trusted not to visibly swell, shrink or distort, with minimal movement. It is kind to the environment, is highly resistant to rot and is tougher, cleaner and less toxic than many other timbers which may have been treated with generic wood treatments that contain harmful chemicals. Highly durable, it withstands the test of any climate. Our clients can expect to enjoy their Accoya wood gates for many years to come.
All the existing and original ironmongery was stripped, all rust removed, sealed with rust inhibiter then painted black.
The doors were painted in Valtti opaque colour TVT K484 which retained the classic, historical and natural appearance of the original.
