Bath Stone Portico, Somerset.
Pinckney Green Stoneworks recently built a Bath stone portico for a period farmhouse in mid-Somerset which is attached to a small chapel. Our client wanted to create a grand entrance for their front door and loved the colour of Bath stone so we used Bath stone block which was in keeping with the character of their property.
The project involved first removing a low stone garden wall and laying foundations before building the portico and installing oak framed windows and an oak-clad ceiling.
Our masons carved a stunning stone door surround which adds real flair to the entrance while the portico’s arched roof reflects the shape of the dormer window in the roof directly above aswell as the existing kitchen porch.
We were also asked by our client to commission a bespoke oak front door which was completed with stunning wrought iron furnishings. The portico interior also featured a beautiful wrought iron pendant light and a blue lias stone floor.
The finished portico makes a delightful and polished entrance to the front of the house.
