Restoring Grandeur at Bourne Hill House

Refurbishments Case Study


At Tailored Wood, we have had the privilege of undertaking a truly monumental restoration project at Bourne Hill House, a revered Grade 2 Star listed property owned and occupied by Wiltshire Council. As a flagship building for the council, Bourne Hill House holds a special place in the region’s architectural heritage, embodying a legacy of elegance and grandeur.

The Project

Our partnership with Wiltshire Council began with a clear mission: to restore and refurbish the 67 original box sash windows that grace the façade of this iconic building. Recognizing the significance of this project, we approached it with the same meticulous care and attention to detail that defines our work.

Our Process

While our restoration process mirrored the tried-and-tested methods we employ in all our projects, the sheer scale of Bourne Hill House demanded additional measures to ensure the success of the endeavour. With 67 windows to restore, each presenting its own unique challenges and intricacies, we implemented extra processes to guarantee that no detail was overlooked.

From the outset, our team of skilled craftsmen meticulously assessed each window, meticulously documenting its condition and identifying areas in need of attention. The restoration process followed our established protocol: disassembling the windows, treating the timber, repairing any damage, and applying multiple coats of paint to restore their original luster.

However, given the size and significance of Bourne Hill House, we went above and beyond to ensure that each window received the same level of care and craftsmanship. Our dedicated team worked tirelessly to maintain consistency across the project, adhering to strict quality standards and timelines to deliver exceptional results.


Through our unwavering commitment to excellence, we have successfully revitalized Bourne Hill House’s iconic windows, breathing new life into this historic landmark. The restored windows now stand as a testament to our dedication to preserving architectural heritage and upholding the legacy of Wiltshire Council’s flagship property.

As proud custodians of Bourne Hill House’s history, we are honoured to have played a role in its preservation. If you have a restoration project of similar scale and significance, we invite you to partner with us and experience firsthand the craftsmanship and expertise that define Tailored Wood.

Together, we can ensure that cherished landmarks like Bourne Hill House continue to inspire awe and admiration for generations to come.

    What People Say...

    We needed restoration work as well as complete replacements for some sash windows, and I have to say I now can’t tell which is which. Many of the period details had been removed from the building by previous owners but with the help of Joel and his team we managed to restore the soul of my home. From start to finish such care and attention goes into their work it was a joy to work with them.

    I cannot recommend Tailored Wood highly enough. Really good local business with highly motivated staff. Not only superb craftsmen but also keen to renovate rather than replace where ever possible. Always on time, kept mess to a minimum and fantastic after sale service on any snags. If you are considering any door or window projects I would always include these guys in your round of quotes.

    WOW! Joel & his team completely transformed our rotting single glazed windows in our period terrace home. Using a combination of refurbishment and new windows we now have beautiful wooden sash double glazed windows entirely in keeping with the property. Joel’s attention to detail, great communication throughout the project, and thorough cleaning down each day made it a whole lot less stressful than we’d anticipated. Joel & his team were an absolute pleasure to work with and have in our home, we would highly recommend them.

    We are absolutely delighted with our new hardwood sash windows! They are so beautiful and we are so pleased to have been able to retain as much of the original wood as possible. They look exactly like the originals and it is almost impossible to see they are double-glazed. We are so glad we did not go for the more expensive PVC wood imitations. Excellent skilful fitter too.

    After meeting with Joel, his personable approach, and excellent advice and ideas, were our reasons for choosing Joel and his team to make and fit our windows. The windows have transformed the front of our house. The craftsmanship is excellent and the attention to detail regarding decorating and finish is second to none. The after-service was excellent.

    We’re now getting Joel and his team back to install a skylight. Thank you to Tailored Wood. Highly recommended.
