Projects Featuring Carron Radiators

Stunning Kitchen Extension, Beckenham

Stunning Kitchen Extension, Beckenham

This stunning kitchen extension to a fine semi-detached home in Beckenham, was created by Earl and Calam Builders of Essex. The architect's clever design extended, updated and modernised the existing living space transforming it into a functional and inviting ‘heart of the home’.

Carron’s Victorian 4 column cast iron radiator was chosen for this project and was supplied through The Period House Store

The client took advantage of our bespoke colour matching service and chose to have the radiator painted in a colour that complements the overall design palette. One of our most versatile designs, our Victorian 4 Column radiator adds a traditional twist to this contemporary living space.

The attention to detail ensured outstanding results; opening the back of the house to the garden and providing much needed space for contemporary living while maintaining the client's desired aesthetic for a comfortable, functional family kitchen.

Carron were enormously proud to be approached by quality furniture retailer Mulityork Furniture Ltd, and earlier in 2015 we loaned a Duchess radiator to be used in the Spring TV advert for the furniture company.

Our Duchess cast iron radiator looks right at home in this classical decorated space, with metal rimmed coffee table and deep purple sofa.

Townhead, Slaidburn

Townhead Project

Passionate and delicate restoration in a Georgian Country house in Lancashire where Carron were fortunately chosen to supply the heating solutions throughout the house. Here's Townhead's story:

Townhead is an 18th Century grade II listed Georgian country house in the Ribble Valley, Lancashire. Up until 2009 it was derelict, unloved and on English Heritage's 'Buildings at Risk' register. In 2010, Robert Staples bought the property and began a 4 year journey of bringing it back to life.

Built in 1732 by the Wigglesworth family, the house has undergone many alternations and extensions. Over the years it has had a number of different uses, including a shooting lodge and a home for evacuees in World War II. In the 1970s, however, the property was abandoned and left to fall into disrepair.

Mr Staples bought Townhead with the intention of restoring it to its former glory and breathing life into it once more to serve as a family home. With a detailed conservation plan drawn up with the consultation of English Heritage, Mr Staples set about a sensitive restoration of the entire property.

Where possible traditional methods and materials were utilised but with the requirements of a modern day home, and that's where Carron came in.

Our range of traditional cast iron radiators were perfect, keeping to the decor of the house but they could be run off the ground source heating system installed in the property to maximise efficiency and minimise the use of modern heating systems not designed for older properties or in keeping with the aesthetics of the period property.

In total over 80 radiators were installed throughout the house, with many different designs and sizes used. The work met all of the relevant guidelines and used traditional methods and materials to retain the integrity of the period property.

The restoration project was such a success that Townhead was named winner of Restoration of a Georgian Country House in the 2013 Georgian Society awards.

The Lingholm Estate, Keswick

Lingholm Estate Project

Carron were lucky enough to be approached by the new owners of the Lingholm estate in late 2013 to supply the cast iron radiators throughout the house, a job we were only too happy to oblige!

Here's Lingholm's story:

Situated on the Western Shore of Derwentwater, the idyllic Lingholm Estate is graced with some of the most extraordinary and impressive views of the Lakeland fells. The ever changing landscapes are one of the hallmarks of the Lake District, famed for its sheer beauty and for the historic estates that are located throughout the countryside.

The Lingholm estate is located in the Northern Lake District with the market town of Keswick just 3 miles to the East. The crowning glory of the estate is a superb grade II listed Victorian house, built circa 1870 and frequented by world famous children's author and illustrator, Beatrix Potter.

Between 1885 and 1907 Potter spent her summers with her family and friends, walking, writing and drawing in the grounds. The surrounding woodlands and forests are said to be the inspiration behind 'The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin'. She also made several sketches of the kitchen garden at Lingholm, believed to be the idea of Mr McGregor's garden in the 'Tale of Peter Rabbit'.

After a period of consultation, including several onsite visits to establish specific requirements and what radiator/s would be best suited, we supplied a full suite of cast iron radiators.

Once installed the owners have had nothing but positive feedback regarding the radiators supplied and comments about how nice it is to see the Estate keeping true to the character of the house with historic decor

We are immensely proud and privileged to be part of this project and hope anyone who visit is suitably impressed.
