British Gypsum’s Gyproc Habito Super Strength plasterboard and ThistlePro Magnetic plaster have been specified by Thomas England Ltd for a luxury development, Drakelow Gorse Farm.
Drakelow Gorse Farm is a collection of seven restored and new-build properties which all sold off-plan. Each home is unique and built to high specification, with onsite tennis courts and stables.
Patrick Seed, Managing Director of Thomas England Ltd., pictured above, commented: “This is luxury living as its best and only the best building materials made it onto the specification list. You don’t have to go far in Cheshire to find beautiful, well-appointed properties, but we wanted to take our development beyond luxurious aesthetics, we wanted to ensure the fabric of the properties was far superior to anything else on the market in the area.
“We gave a lot of thought to how our homebuyers would live in their new properties and what they would want from these elegant homes, beyond the usual upscale kitchen and appliances. When we came across Gyproc Habito, it was obvious Super Strength plasterboard and Magnetic Walls would sit perfectly alongside our more typical top of the range features such as underfloor heating, log burners, superfast fibre optic broadband and Cat 6 data cabling.
“Our customers have all been impressed with both Gyproc Habito Super Strength plasterboard and ThistlePro Magnetic plaster. Everyone loves the idea of Magnetic Walls – being able to personalise the space without damaging the walls is a real attraction. And when you tell people they can screw directly into the walls with just a screwdriver and hang a 15kg weight from one single woodscrew without power tools, it reinforces the notion that the home they’re buying is well-built, solid and built to last.”
Sarah White, Residential Sector Manager, British Gypsum sees Drakelow Gorse Farm as a strategically important development, given the sought-after and high-end nature of real estate in Cheshire. She commented: “Our innovative products like Gyproc Habito and ThistlePro Magnetic plaster are perfect for luxury developments. And as the building industry as a whole increasingly focuses on creating homes which meet homeowner needs, developments like Drakelow Gorse Farm send a strong message that this is the future of housebuilding.”
