A unique opportunity to build a detached modern property and garage within the heart of this picturesque historic town.
This 3 bedroom, detached property has been traditionally designed to sit comfortably within its historic setting, yet offering a contemporary layout synonymous with modern living. The majority of the building has been designed to be screened from view of the lane, ensuring a good amount of privacy and seclusion with large windows cleverly placed to maximise the amount of natural daylight within the property. A simple palette of materials has been proposed including a mix of brickwork, stone and timber cladding to the elevations under a natural slate tiled roof, all helping to blend the property with the surrounding landscape, which includes an attractive natural stone wall to the North West boundary.
The plot is accessed via a short right of access from The Butts and is proposed to have wooden gates opening to a parking and turning area to the front of the detached garage. The majority of the garden is sited to the South West of the plot with a terrace accessed from the kitchen/dining room. The grounds are slightly sunken from the surrounding properties, creating a sheltered and private space in which to relax and enjoy the sun through the afternoon and into the evening.
