A stunning private residence in the South Downs National Park, West Sussex, features our white lias building stone. 

The project involved the demolition of existing semi-detached properties, both poor quality, and the construction of a split-level residential property designed by the owner. The external building is finished in our white lias natural stone complimented with a blend of grey brickwork and natural Siberian larch cladding. A contemporary design in complete harmony with the natural landscape; making the most of the views of the countryside. 

White Lias is a particularly fine-grained, high quality, form of limestone, varying in colour from white-cream to pale grey, and is traditionally only quarried in Somerset and occasionally in Warwickshire. White Lias makes an excellent building stone and can be seen in the towns of Midsomer Norton, Radstock and Wincanton.
