FLUSH CASEMENTS WITH RECESSED SASH DETAIL - ARTS AND CRAFTS HOUSE, NEWCASTLE
There are a lot of properties dating back about 100 years or so that have windows with quite a pronounced external frame. The sashes sit deep within the frame - sometimes opening inwards, sometimes outwards. Many of the properties are built in the 'Arts and Crafts' style so the heavier transom and mullions reflected the old stone window framing of a few centuries earlier.
This variation on a flush casement window in Newcastle replicates the look really well and looks perfectly appropriate for the property despite offering all of the benefits of double-glazing and multi-point locking security. The colour (Light Ivory) matches the creamy mortar used between the bricks.
