In the picturesque peninsula of Rutland Water our client had a plot of land in the village of Hambleton that they wished to build their own home. Whilst having a permission the client wanted to make alterations to that permission. The difficulty was that the site was on the fringes of the conservation area and neighboured a Grade 2 Listed Cottage. Working extensively with the Local Planning Authority we were able to produce a scheme that caused no increased harm to the listed property than the previous approval. We were retained on the project for the duration, producing the planning drawings, achieving a successful planning permission, producing the detailed design and buildign regulations approval and continued liason with the builders as they were on site. At times we were required to produce bespoke constructyion details to assist with the construction.
Featuring a basement, an isolated flat roof (surrounded on all sides by pitched rooves) and a large (over 10m wide) bi-fold unit, this high quality unique property was not short in tricky unique details and elements which once worked out allowed the construction of a fabulous property.
