Private Residence: Leicestershire
Stone Type : Stoke Hall Sandstone

Description of project

The scheme required a full ashlar plinth course around the entire footprint, with a large chamfered top aris, including cut out air vents. There are full stone surrounds to each of the windows, the simple square face detail gives a contemporary look. The study bay window has a feature stone surround with rusticated ashlar, where each course has a masoned rebate to the top aris giving a contrasting traditional look. The front entrance has an arched stone surround to the porch, with units cut with upward radius.

API Stone produced all the technical setting out drawings for the scheme as well as procuring the Stoke Hall block and taking care of all finishing masonry work.

Stoke Hall is a very clear buff Yorkstone, a dense and robust stone, suitable for all applications, with good bed parameters, it can be used for ashlar, cladding, architectural masonry, and is frost resilient so can be used on the ground for steps and paving.
