Stella Specified for Barn Conversion at Poldhurst Manor

The Project

Poldhurst Manor is a stunning country residence in Harbledown and Rough Common, Kent. Part of the main residence dates back to the early 16th Century.

The estate includes a number of grade 2 listed barns, which have all been converted for office and leisure space.

A new upstairs areas has been recently introduced into one of the barns, creating a useful space which the owner intends to use a gymnasium.

A Stunning Look Inside and Out

In order to create a light, airy and well ventilated space, the owner commissioned four Stella bespoke conservation rooflights, that now flood the large open upstairs space with natural daylight. The perfect environment for those morning spin sessions!

Stella designed and manufactured the opening rooflights to fit an internal rafter size 550mmx850mm, each with a single glazing bar. Internally the rooflights were finished with a stylish American Ash liner to achieve a high quality finish and excellent thermal performance.

High Performance Rooflights

The rooflights were manufactured using Marine Grade 316 stainless steel and finished with a C5 powder coating offering excellent protection against the elements with minimum maintenance.

The glazing consisted a 4mm toughened Bio-Clean Natural self-clean and solar control outer pane with a 16mm black warm edge spacer filled with Argon gas and a 4mm toughened Planitherm Low E inner pane.

The 4 opening rooflights are manually operated using high quality solid brass winders.

Another Satisfied Customer

"We spent a long time researching the various conservation rooflight products available and we really liked the look and the high specification offered with the Stella Rooflight option.

We were able to design the rooflights exactly how we wanted them and Paul and the team were extremely helpful throughout the entire process.

The fact that the rooflights are designed and manufactured in the UK also appealed and you can really see the quality in the finish and design. We have been very impressed with the Stella team and we love the appearance of our new rooflights. We will be back for more!"
