Case Studies

Timber Frame Brick House

Timber Frame Brick House

A new build with a touch of class.

This newly erected property in the heart of Mid-Wales is constructed by a local firm to such a high specification that it called for a quality ironmongery finish.

The owner chose to fit all areas of the property with a suite of From The Anvil Pewter door, window and cabinet fittings to compliment the quality workmanship within.

As you can see from the images the timber frame of the property gives a beautiful richness to the home and a warmth only achievable with English Oak beams. Compliment that with the contrast of pewter finish ironmongery then there is an ideal match.

Border Oak Cottage

Border Oak Cottage

A beautifully constructed timber frame cottage from the well respected Border Oak company. Nestled near the Welsh/English Marches this timber clad property shows quality throughout which is only enhanced with a full range of From The Anvil door and window furniture. Pewter Patina finish was the choice of owners Emma and Simon which as you will see looks fantastic against all the exposed oak wood work.

Stone Cottage on the Hill

Stone Cottage on the Hill

An excellent conversion of an old stone barn has been given a new lease of life with timber clad extensions and outbuildings. Perched on top of a hill in Mid Wales the barn overlooks beautiful rolling hills and stunning green valleys which is reinforced with a quality build and a range of From The Anvil products which adorn this wonderful property.

The Lion Inn

The Lion Inn

Set in stunning surroundings in the picturesque village of Leintwardine, South Shropshire, a short distance from Ludlow, the Lion Inn with its bars, restaurant and rooms is the perfect place to unwind. Situated on the banks of the lovely River Teme it is a stunning location to relax and see what the area has to offer.

The Lion has recently undergone a complete makeover with the owners needing a choice of ironmongery to match the quality and style of the restoration, they chose From The Anvil. The main restaurant, bar & breakfast room has been lovingly decorated in quality finishes throughout and then adorned with our Pewter Patina Window Furniture in the Monkeytail Night Venting Fasteners & Monkeytail Stays. This style of ironmongery has helped create a beautiful finish in what has become a sympathetic restoration, exactly what a quality building like The Lion needed.

The Old Post Office

The Old Post Office

This beautiful Grade 2 Listed building nestled in the heart of Pembridge in Herefordshire was once the village post office and stores and therefore at the centre of the local Parish.

The property is currently near completion and has been lovingly and sympathetically restored by its passionate owners and their experienced building team. Over the last year or so they have been creating a family home and business from the shell of what is essentially a 14th Century timber-framed core. The building has also been extensively remodelled throughout the 17th and 19th Century and is now getting a new lease of life to take it long into the next century.

The renovation called for a style of ironmongery that gives a perfect enhancement to the development and allows the quality of workmanship to shine through. The owners chose From The Anvil products to amplify the character of the building.

Their home has been fitted throughout with the stunning Pewter Patina finish, from the traditional Thumblatches you’d expect to find in a building of this age through to Fishtail Bolts, Shakespeare Knockers and the Cromwell range of lever handles. The perfect accompaniment to a listed building with so much character and history.

Ireland's Mansion

Ireland's Mansion

Irelands Mansion is a listed Tudor building situated in the centre of the historic town of Shrewsbury. It has been converted into a modern office block that accommodates various local businesses.

From the Anvil provided a full ironmongery specification and worked closely with the joiner and architects during the project. We provided all locks, latches and ironmongery and our Pewter products have been used throughout. The door closers were also sourced by From the Anvil and finished specifically to match.

The building has been transformed with care, skill and an understanding of its history. The charming entrance way is an example of this sympathetic work. Its exposed beams take centre stage, complemented by new solid oak glazed doors and our Pewter Avon on Rose Handles.

The original windows on the façade of the building are adorned with our Pewter Peardrop Night Vent Fasteners and Stays. The central sweeping staircase leads to each floor through off white doors which are also fitted with our Avon Handles.

A high-quality finish has been achieved and the contemporary fixtures and fittings used contrast brilliantly with the building’s original features.

All joinery work has been carried out by Netley Joinery (www.netleyjoinery.co.uk) and all design and fittings supplied by Netley Interiors (www.netleyinteriors.co.uk) using From The Anvil products.

Classic Contemporary

This large period property in South East England has undergone a two-year renovation. The owner has project managed throughout and created a modern family home whilst retaining the building’s original character. A contemporary extension has been added to house an indoor swimming pool and allow for 21st-century living.

The home owner, a self-confessed perfectionist has paid huge attention to detail during the project and spent time and effort sourcing quality fittings. From the Anvil products have been used throughout the property in both original and new spaces. Our Beehive Mortice/Rim Knob Sets fit perfectly on the internal doors of the first floor. The spacious kitchen oozes quality and craftsmanship and has been finished with our Natural Smooth Octagonal Knobs and Drawer Pulls. The contemporary yet characterful look is continued through to the lightflooded extension which has been fitted with a selection of our Pewter and Natural Smooth door furniture.

The Hundred House Inn

The Hundred House Inn

The Hundred House Inn is a quintessential village pub, packed full of history and charm. Located in Bleddfa near Knighton on the Welsh border, it was built in 1524 as a Radnorshire Courthouse. After years of service it first became a free house in the 1850s when the court moved to the nearby town of Presteigne.

In May 2015, the building changed ownership and underwent a complete transformation. In addition to the extensions and renovations the current proprietor’s primary goal was that the frontage be restored to how it would have looked five hundred years ago. This included replacing the building’s UPVC windows with oak frames, raw iron casements and heritage leaded glass.

The characterful interior has also been carefully updated and includes many authentic and quirky touches. “As we near the completion of the renovation we have gained great satisfaction with the results, which have been significantly enhanced by sourcing quality ironmongery and fittings throughout.” – Mr Jones (Proprietor).

The Hundred House Inn will re-open this spring and its gourmet pie kitchen is definitely worth a visit - hundredhousebleddfa.wordpress.com
