A natural finish for new housing project


FORTICRETE’S popular Anstone® Walling Stone and highly durable Minislate® roof tiles have been selected to complement the local vernacular for a striking new residential development in the heart of the prestigious Roundhay district of Leeds.

Devonshire Park, the new housing project from Amberstone Developments which comprises eight three and four-bedroom town houses, was carefully designed to blend with its surrounding area and adjacent Roundhay Conservation Area.
Project architects, ACER Architectural, specified the Anstone® Walling Stone in Olde Heather Black, and lightweight Minislate interlocking roof tiles in Slate Grey, which were installed with the company’s Dry Fix System which is designed to provide a maintenance free detail at the ridge, verge, valleys and hips.
David Morgan, Director at ACER Architectural, said, “This attractive housing project had to be carefully designed to blend in with other established properties. The Forticrete Minislate with its thin leading edge and small element size provided the ideal solution to ensure the development was in keeping with the character of the existing properties.
“Forticrete’s Anstone® Premier Range Walling with a pitched finish enhanced the kerb appeal for this quality development.”
