A huge mural has been unveiled at a new housing development in the Warwickshire village of Lapworth.
The painting, which is almost 30 metres in length and up to four metres high, is part of the re-development of Aylesbury House, an imposing 18th century manor house, by Cameron Homes.
The company is refurbishing the Grade II listed property into five townhouses and building an additional 12 new homes in the grounds.
Artist Fran O’Boyle was commissioned to undertake the project and spent a month weeks creating the work.
“This was my first building site mural and I enjoyed it a lot,” said Fran, who also illustrates books and puts on exhibitions, as well as making murals for restaurants and bars.
“I got great feedback from the guys on site who expressed a lot of interest at seeing what I was doing as it took shape. I think it was a novelty for them to have an artist working in their midst.
“I have been asked to create community-related murals in public places, indoors as well as outside, in Ireland and the UK and the demand is steadily growing,” he added.
Beverley Coleman, head of sales at Cameron Homes said the firm was delighted with the finished artwork.
“This a very exciting new housing development and we are expecting it to generate a lot of interest - we could not be more pleased with the stunning mural Fran created,” Bev said.
A selection of three, four and five bedroom new build homes and the renovated two, three and four bedroom townhouses in the manor building will be available at Cameron’s Aylesbury Park development, The first phase of properties is now on sale.
