Persimmon Specify Tobermore’s Charming Yet Cost-Effective Natural Stone Alternative

21 Dec 2016
Case study

Persimmon Homes recently launched The Links, a select new development situated in Llanelli on the picturesque west coast of Wales. The choice of building materials was hugely important to the highly renowned housing developer as the stunning homes were designed to the highest specification and with the aim of complementing the local environment. Persimmon Homes chose a combination of stone, brick and render finishes for the properties and Tobermore provided a stylish solution for the stone requirement on site in the form of Country Stone Walling – a concrete product that is manufactured to produce a weathered stone appearance that evokes vintage style and charm.

The combination of finishes for the external design of the properties at The Links was the perfect choice for the projects serene beach and countryside setting. The developer’s decision to specify Tobermore’s Country Stone Walling was due to the aesthetic qualities and ease of installation that the product promised, making it an ideal choice for housebuilding. In addition, Country Stone Walling is a cost-effective alternative to natural stone products whilst offering a similar rustic appearance as that of natural stone.

The nostalgic aesthetics of Country Stone Walling is increasingly sought after by home buyers and there is no doubt that the visual appeal of a home is a crucial decider when selling properties. Therefore, it is more important than ever for housebuilders to meet the expectations of the modern home buyer.

Persimmon Homes specified Country Stone Walling in the colour of Slate which consists of a subtle blend of grey tones. Persimmon Homes colour choice provided a beautiful accompaniment to the grey slated roofing, white render and golden brick on site.

The Links is now available for homebuyers, offering a choice of two and three bedroom stylish semi-detached homes and three and four bedroom spacious detached homes. The developments tranquil location offers a relaxed lifestyle and is equipped with all the conveniences of modern living.
