The sleek slimline aesthetics of Stellar aluminium windows and doors from Epwin Window Systems were selected for a complex refurbishment of a Grade II listed high-end pool house for a home near Crediton in Devon.  The Stellar windows and doors were manufactured and installed by Devon and Cornwall Windows Ltd.

However, the homeowner was keen to create a high end, functional space that maximised natural light throughout the room.  We suggested replacing the existing windows and wall with full height windows and doors from the Stellar aluminium range to deliver the light-filled sophisticated space the homeowner specified.”
