Hardie® Plank: Making bold design statements in South Chiltern Village

Hardie® Plank: Making bold design statements in South Chiltern Village

When Vision Development South Ltd looked to create new build residential accommodation in the desirable area of Woodcote, South Oxfordshire, differentiation was key

As a luxury property selling at just under £1 million, an appropriate mix of high-quality building materials and on trend finishing was essential to appeal to prospective homeowners.

For the interiors, this translated to a range of premium touches across more than 2,500 square feet of accommodation; including Porcelanosa tiling, solid oak doors and glass staircases, to provide discerning purchasers with the high-end specification desired.

On the property exteriors, a red and grey brick facade is complemented with Hardie® Plank fibre cement cladding in Iron Grey cedar texture, to make a dramatic design statement.


Lucy Karpinski, marketing manager at Vision Development, says: ‘We felt using Hardie® Plank cladding really accentuated the design and gives the property a modern twist, completely transforming the external face of the house without the need for additional decoration.

‘As a responsible developer, our reasons for using Hardie® Plank cladding were not only aesthetic, however. We also wanted a design solution that would give all the natural beauty and illusion of being a wood finish but without the ongoing maintenance for homeowners.

‘The product being stocked locally in the UK was a big plus for us too, no long lead times so we were able to complete the build without any delays. We have tried other cladding materials before but Hardie® Plank cladding was far easier to work with and there was minimal waste on site. We would definitely use again!’
