​Simon and Fran Ackerley set out to design a traditional farmhouse with a modern twist for themselves and their 3 sons on their 200 acre farm in the stunning rural location at Kilnwick Percy, near Pocklington in Yorkshire.
 
The main designer and contractor was Anderson York Ltd., this relationship proved to be a great team in making some exciting material choices. Including premium blue Welsh natural roofing slates and a contemporary galvanised steel gutter system which were provided by Burton Roofing Merchants.
 
The merchants remarked that the Lindab rainwater system, "makes a striking statement but ultimately benefits very low maintenance".
Owner, Simon commented that the long term view has ruled in most instances as they didn’t want any regrets.
 
The finished project is a real pleasure to see and has had a lot of press coverage.
