Keylite roof windows brighten the newest addition of Surrey’s private Wentworth Estate

  • 22 Nov 2022

The latest addition to the Wentworth Estate is a bespoke family home, designed and built by luxury homes specialist, EAB Homes. Ultra-slim profile aluminium windows, doors and Keylite roof windows feature on all aspects of the property.

The property boasts 6,500 square foot of statement architecture, contemporary designs, and stunning traditional interiors.

The Wentworth Estate is a private area of properties and woodlands dating back for centuries, having been home to many historical and famous faces, the estate holds its fair share of history.

Peter Warren, Director at EAB Homes has been following this project from the beginning, working closely with the now homeowners to deliver the family home they’d been dreaming of.


Peter comments: “The aesthetics of the home were extremely important in this build. Within a location renowned for its neo-classical Georgian style architecture, this property pushes the boundary of design by using a sleek and contemporary mix of materials alongside traditional methods of construction.”

With no less than 56 corners of brickwork in total, the front of the property creates a stunning multifaceted entrance, but it’s the rear of the property that really brings the ‘wow-factor’.

Three statement gables crown each segment of the back outer walls, encompassing floor-to-ceiling length windows on each floor that look out onto a large heated outdoor pool with a covered entertaining area, gas BBQ and cooking station, and a wide expanse of manicured lawn and planting areas.


Peter continues: “As a family home built to be structurally as well as aesthetically timeless, it was important that we incorporated features that would ensure the property could stand the test of time, in which natural daylight and ventilation are two huge factors.

“Ultra-slim profile aluminium windows, doors and Keylite roof windows feature on all aspects of the property, maximising the light that flows throughout the space. The use of Keylite roof windows allowed our architects to let loose on the property design, without having to worry about whether the build would get the ventilation it needs, or whether certain building regs would be covered.

“You can find the roof windows in the master dressing room, cinema room and one of the second-floor bedrooms, but it’s in the master bedroom where they truly take centre stage and are used as a feature, as well as a necessity.

Keylite is the first-choice manufacturer for roof windows in many of our projects, including this property. The materials used and the fact the windows don’t come prefinished means our contractors can finish the windows in the exact style as the rest of the property to really tie everything in – this is just something you can’t do with most other manufacturers.”

The property’s modern architecture reflects the modern lifestyle of its homeowners, using a home automation system and electric Keylite roof windows and blinds, which allow the homeowners to open, close, vent and lock their windows and blinds at the click of a button.

The Wentworth Estate is well known for its stunning properties and peaceful surroundings, and this home is certainly no exception.
