The project brief was to demolish an existing workshop and create a new dwelling in keeping with the form and character of the area. The site is set in a quiet lane just back from the main road through the village. The design would need to provide a detached double garage, fire appliance turning area, plenty of amenity garden space and generous accommodation.
The final design was a five-bedroom detached chalet style bungalow of brick and cavity wall construction with cedar cladding at the rear. The dwelling and two bay detached garage were positioned at the front to prevent overlooking and overshadowing the adjacent neighbouring properties. There is an ample rear garden amenity space to the west of the dwelling and plenty of turning access to the front of the garage.
