There have been some beautiful, bespoke Yorkstone features reinstated at this impressive four story Surrey home.
Despite being built in 1861, the house oozes Georgian elegance with its well-proportioned, red-brick facade featuring classic Georgian period six over six sash windows.
Manor Sawn Yorkstone was chosen as the best match to existing stonework and to tone in with the buff coloured pointing which had been recently been carefully refreshed. Six bullnosed steps with matching risers were commissioned to exacting specifications and installed at the entrance door. Two flat pier caps in the same stone were also cut to top the matching pair of low brick pillars at the entrance’s foot.
Framing the gates to the grounds, two tall brick and stone pillars were in a sorry state of disrepair and had to be rebuilt. Sadly, only one of the original pier caps with spherical capitals had survived, though it too was threatening to crumble away! From the design and dimensions of the old pier cap, two new Manor Sawn Yorkstone pier caps were masoned and installed by the new owner of the property, determined to showcase this house at its very best.
We applaud the care and attention our clients have paid to this house, their home. It looks great!
