The sympathetic and contemporary redevelopment of these magnificent buildings has been hotly pursued by purchasers, who are able to choose their interior finishes from a carefully selected range of products, from the finest of manufacturers.
For the floor coverings, Storey Homes looked no further than Karndean for superior quality luxury design flooring that would compliment the sweeping hallways and traditional Victorian architecture.
Karndeans Art Select range is specifically designed for the most aesthetically demanding of projects. Perfectly replicating the beauty, geometry and craftsmanship of real hand-worked timber, Art Select also features bevelled edges and authentic graining and knot detail for a truly original finish.
Gareth Jacob, Head of Sales and Marketing for Storey Homes commented: With such an illustrious history and bags of original design, we needed a floor covering that would combine the tradition of the Victorian architecture together with the contemporary redevelopment style we had chosen. Karndeans premium quality, hand scrapped wood effect flooring was ideal to suit the daily needs of a busy family, whilst looking aesthetically beautiful in what has been an exciting project for specification.
Redeveloping Lansdowne Villas into a range of large family dwellings, Storey Homes chose Karndean not only for the stunning finish of its products, but for the durability and ease of maintenance that it can offer any new homeowner.
Gareth continued: The Lansdowne Villas cost in excess of half a million pounds each so we have to be confident that every material we use is of the highest quality. Karndean flooring lends itself perfectly to the redevelopment of old and new buildings alike and provides a character-full, practical and beautiful alternative to natural materials.
