Hemmed in on all sides
The backland hidden site consists of a row of single storey garages and adjacent hard standing opposite a four track railway. A recently reconstructed single storey substation takes up the southern part of the site.
The designs were developed through extensive consultation with the local authority and the local community. The scheme has been carefully designed to preserve the amenity of residents in neighbouring properties, with no impact on privacy, outlook or sunlight. Each home has a distinct repetitive form providing both individual identity and character as a grouped terrace of houses.
Rooms with a view
The scheme will provide six terraced three bedroom homes in a single block with their own car parking spaces, front gardens and dedicated and lockable bike storage. Roof mounted solar panels will generate on-site electricity.
The three storey homes have two external terraces including one above the first floor with high level screening and planting to one side for privacy. The other open side affords attractive views over the railway to the Cobbs Corner Conservation Area.
On the ground floor there is a dual aspect living, kitchen and dining space, with access to the terrace from the living room. There is also a bathroom and dedicated storage area beneath the stairs.
On the first floor, a central corridor leads to a double and a single bedroom and additional study bedroom designed for occasional use. Stairs to the second floor lead to another large double bedroom with sliding doors to the terrace and an en-suite bathroom.
