The Cascade cast iron style rainwater system has provided exemplary period detail and long-term performance as part of a stunning new housing development by Miller Homes within an exclusive country estate in County Durham.
One of County Durham’s hidden gems, the extensive Lambton Estate occupies 600 hectares of farmland and woodland in the northeast of the county. As part of a long-term restoration scheme to help fund the conservation of historic Grade I and Grade II listed buildings within the estate, the first phase has seen home builder Miller Homes complete 64 new properties for the new Eastern Village. Thoughtfully designed to be in keeping with the heritage of the estate and entirely bespoke, the homes have Victorian design features including red brick detailing, sash windows and decorative ridge tiles and chimneys. With the aesthetics and long-term performance such important drivers of the scheme, Newcastle-based POD Architects turned to Brett Martin when it came to the specification of rainwater systems.
To meet the stringent design requirements across the homes, POD Architects specified the Prostyle 106mm, Round 68mm downpipes and Ogee hoppers, all in classic black. With the first phase of the exceptional development now complete, Brett Martin’s Cascade rainwater system is undoubtedly playing a key part of developer Miller Home’s commitment to high specification and exceptional detailing.
