New Home Approved

We were recently granted Planning Approval for a new one-off substantial home in North Cheshire.

The site is formed from a portion of a sizeable existing garden and sits comfortably between existing residential properties with aspects out onto open countryside bordering the North Cheshire Greenbelt.

The house has been designed to make the most of the countryside views and is laid out around a glazed atrium forming the entrance and main circulation space. The two wings enclosing this have glazed gable features to the rear, looking across a large private garden and beyond to the open fields.

The property is circa 600m2 and comprises 5+ bedrooms (including extensive master suite and semi-independent guest accommodation), lounge, kitchen/ dining/ family room, study/ office, media/ cinema room, glazed sun room/ dining area, breakfast terrace with panoramic views, utility/ boot room, double garage and garden store.

The project is of special interest as it one of the first to test the recent relaxation of the Warrington Borough Council “Moratorium” on new dwellings under housing supply policy. In addition there are numerous Tree Preservation Orders on the site (including in direct line of the new access which required very particular design solutions to obtain support for a new driveway over the root protection area) and potential tandem development policy which necessitated extensive pre-application discussions with the LPA. Careful design and the clients’ willingness to compromise with the LPA and neighbour comments have resulted in a successful application and a bespoke design solution.
