SureSet Remodels Former Celebrity Home!

Beach House Quay is a luxury home situated on the edge of an estuary in the beautiful town of Salcombe, Devon. Previously inhabited by Michael Parkinson, it had since been sold and was undergoing a complete renovation and re-design. SureSet were specified by the Architects and contacted by the contractors; Heron Building Contractors to transform the external surfaces.

Solution

SureSet were specified to surface the extensive outside areas. The product was chosen as it provided the high quality, aesthetically beautiful and durable surface that was needed. The areas included a large slip-way and several ramps. These led from the private boat house down the water and required a hard wearing surface that could cope with vehicular traffic and also give a smooth surface for the boat trailers. It was also chosen due to its ‘Green’ credentials as it returns water to the natural water table without any need for extra drainage.
3mm Norwegian Pearl was chosen and laid at a 16mm depth. It was a technically challenging project due to the varying inclines that the product was installed on. However, due to the skill of the Installation Team, the areas were all completed to an extremely high standard.

Result

The finished surfaces were worthy of a luxury home and blended in seamlessly with the existing building and landscaped areas. It is also fully permeable meaning that in heavy rain there will be no puddles or standing water.

The Architects and Contractors were overjoyed with the result and felt that the SureSet product had given this incredible development the luxurious finishing touches that it needed.
