HardiePlank®: Luxury Living at Lime Grove

When considering what materials to use on luxury new build development Lime Grove, premium developer Peter David Homes knew they wanted something to set the scheme apart from the competition.

Lime Grove features a mix of seven unique four and five bedroom houses, situated in the picturesque village of Little Hadham, Hertfordshire. The home designs are contemporary and bold, featuring a mix of application styles, which see both vertical ‘hit and miss’ installation complemented by a horizontal shiplap design.

HardiePlank fibre cement cladding® was used in cedar texture, in both Iron Grey and Boothbay Blue. Houses were a half wrap design, featuring the cladding plus red and yellow brick.

“During the design stage of the project we reviewed numerous alternative cladding products with our contractor, Oak Developments, but from our initial meetings with James Hardie it was clear the product was superior to the other alternatives we were looking at” says Glen Eaton, Director at Peter David Homes.

In terms of installation, the on-site team also found the James Hardie ‘toolbox training’ session beneficial. “This gave the installers the confidence to fit the product to the best possible finish” Peter Kerin from Oak Developments adds.

Once the product was delivered to site we were not disappointed, from the planks themselves to the corner trims and ventilation trims, the quality was of the highest standard.”

“On completion of the project”, Glen concludes, “the use of HardiePlank weatherboard gave the homes a distinctive, maintenance free, high quality appearance that we and our customers were extremely satisfied with.”
