    As Peter opened the door

    I am wondering if my sentence is grammatically correct.

    As Peter opened the door of the derelict house, the pages of old papers left on the table fluttered in the draught, and layers of dust swirled upwards.

    I would remove the pages of. You have pages in a book, but not individual papers, which come in sheets not pages.
