Inspired by the architecture of Campbell College, Lacefield draws it's name from the intrinsic link with the schools founding father, Henry James Campbell, the 19th century linen trade magnate. Designed in an early Victorian style the architecture and finish at Lacefield pay homage to gothic revivalist styling, reminiscent of the era, reflected in the antique red brick, granite features and sharp pitched roof lines. Bay windows, high ceilings and generous proportions give the homes at Lacefield an inimitable feel of pre-war housing and modern layouts have been cleverly combined with quality interiors to offer all the convenience desired for contemporary living.
The Main Structure:
Walls are of traditional, tried and tested cavity construction. Red brick and/or plaster render painted grey are used for the external finish topped by black coloured uPVC square fascia, barge and soffit where applicable. External timber features are painted gloss black to match where applicable. Granite sills, pillars and window facades recreate the class and charm of the era. The roof will have a contrasting black coloured slate finish. Black coloured uPVC moulded guttering with round antique effect uPVC downpipes compliment the external trim. Cream colour energy saving uPVC double glazed windows, white on the inside, with locking latches (except those deemed emergency escape routes) are standard. Matching uPVC sliding doors are fitted where applicable. A low maintenance GRP front door completes the external elevation.
All garden areas will have a lawn front and rear unless otherwise specified orshown on the site layout. Flat top garden edge and treated rail fencing willbe erected where applicable.

This will incorporate a boiler providing underfloor heating on the ground floor and radiators to all main rooms on other floors. The system can be remotely controlled using a 'smart*' phone to ensure a performance suitable for most individual requirements and to provide you with a separate hot water supply. Your new home will have a pressurised water system.
