Castle Door And Transom Inspired By Hever Castle In The United Kingdom
These simple and rustic entry doors are inspired by Hever Castle in Kent. Hever Castle, originally constructed in the 12th and 13th centuries, is best known as the childhood home of Anne Boleyn, the second wife of King Henry VIII; however, each of the thirteen families who owned it over the centuries added on to the original structure. The Boleyn family owned the castle in the 14th and 15th centuries during which time Anne received love letters there from the King in 1528. After Anne’s and her father’s deaths, James Boleyn inherited the castle and sold it to the crown. King Henry VIII then gave the castle to his fourth wife, Anne of Cleves, after their divorce.
After many more changes in ownership, William Waldorf Astor, the richest man in America, purchased the castle in 1903. By this time, the castle had started to become run down, so he worked on restoring the castle as well adding another wing and constructing the lake and gardens. When William Astor restored the castle he worked very hard at recreating the Tudor style accurately. The interior of the castle is mostly lined with wood paneling in the Tudor style, some still original and some that Astor hired experts to recreate. This door would not look out of place anywhere in the castle. The dark finish and rustic texture give this door the appearance of an antique and can add old world charm to your home. The transom with the glass panel will allow light into your home if used as entrance doors or use them as interior doors to add some drama. The choice is up to you.
