Detailed planning permission has been granted under reference 14/01305/FLL with development having been confirmed as ‘live’ from 2017. The proposed new house comprises a two storey detached family home with 4 good sized bedrooms, together with flexible and generous reception and family living space. The designed layout will provide an opportunity to create a stunning home with a sitting room, an open plan kitchen with dining area and family room, utility, pantry, wc and ground floor bedroom with an en-suite shower room.
The first floor accommodation proposals include a master bedroom suite with dressing room and en-suite bathroom, two bedrooms each with a dressing room and en-suite bathroom, plus a linen cupboard and a study area. The design concept will maximise the impressive position of the plot, taking advantage of the wonderful views over countryside and will offer the benefits of modern living with a rural lifestyle.
The views over open countryside have been taken into account during the design stage to allow maximum light into the house together with taking full advantage of the south westerly views. The site is surrounded by fields to the south, east and west with the public road running past the site to the north. The extent of the land within the plot will provide scope to create paddocks or extensive landscaping to compliment the house.
