Knock twice for the Wizard
June 2019

The grounds of the Tudor Gothic mansions Knock Castle and Knock Old Castle in Largs, on the West Coast of Scotland, have been enhanced with the addition of the Wizard’s House, a garden room featuring aluminium glazing from SIDEY.

The garden room was built by Marti McVey, a designer, builder and bespoke furniture maker, to make the most of the stunning views of the Scottish Isles. Sidey was chosen to supply aluminium windows and doors for the build of a bespoke garden room named the Wizard’s House.

Grey aluminium fixed casement windows and aluminium sliding patio doors were manufactured and supplied by Sidey. All featuring low-E toughened glass. The doors feature two centre sliding doors with two external deadlights.

The profiles offer U-values as low as 1.2 W/m2K for essential energy efficiency and the windows are tested to meet performance and security requirements of BS7412 and PAS 24.

Marti McVey said: “The Wizard’s House is the second garden room I have built in the grounds of Knock Castle, the first being the Witch’s House. It was built to provide a space to enjoy the stunning grounds and views.”
