‘You can see all the way to the horizon!’

Situated just metres from the Irish Sea, this completely renovated 1970s home on the Wirral benefits from spectacular unbroken views as far as the eye can see.

Glass Balustrade


Balconette supplied and installed the Frameless Glass Juliet balconies and an external glass balustrade at the front of the property that bring in light and retain unobstructed views, while providing an excellent protective barrier from breezes.

For owners Steve McGlasson and Penny Howat, the products are the perfect fit for their project, as Steve explained: “Our original plan was to install a full balcony overlooking the rear garden to make the most of the clear sea views. You can see all the way to the horizon. In the end, we’re glad we opted for the Juliet balconies that are exactly what we were looking for.”

Extensive refurbishment of their home included enlarging the rear windows for access to an external balcony. “As it can get rather windy, we decided a better solution would be to have Juliet balconies that provide more shelter,” continued Steve. “We’d already committed to the alterations to the windows to have sliding doors on the first floor rooms, so after some research I contacted Balconette.”


Frameless Juliet balconies

Balconette’s technical team liaised with Steve’s architect and builder to take the idea forward. “The Juliets were the ideal solution – without a doubt! They give us the barrier while keeping the light. The good thing as well is, on reflection, it doesn’t take away any light from the rear of the house downstairs, which a full balcony would have done.”

Commenting on the products, Steve said: “They look clean, neat and spectacular. Two of the windows are more than three metres wide and we wanted a single piece of glass to span the openings. Balconette was able to accommodate that. I’m impressed with what the products can do and the finish is superb.”

Recommending both Balconette’s products and their installer, Steve added: “Being close to the sea having a low-maintenance balustrading system was important as it’s not going to corrode. I would thoroughly recommend it to anybody.”
