Efficient, modern design
The site's former use was as a Garden Nursery. To the south-east of the site are views over open countryside. These views have been maintained, and to the west of the site is located the Millennium Green, Scout Hut and Parish Hall. We have included the creation of a new converted farm style building, with car parking to the rear. We have retained the existing mature trees and endeavoured to create a development with its own aesthetic identity, that will contribute to the existing diversity of Blakedown village. A simple material palette of bricks and render, with simple brick details, will help to create focal points, and a sense of place.
The build so far
Build started in autumn 2012 and the sales centre and stunning new show home opened in May 2013 with a further show home opening later in the year. The first legal completions were in December 2013.
