About this property

  • This represents a rare opportunity to acquire a plot with full planning consent for a unique, contemporary home.

    This three bedroom home has been designed by LBA Architects, with the concept of forming a secret garden, tucked behind an existing brick wall in the Eskbank and Ironmills conservation area. It sits within the grounds of Mayfield Lodge, an existing C Listed property. The new dwelling has been carefully designed to respect its surroundings, whilst offering a new contemporary home discretely nestled in the garden grounds.

    The house is designed to have areas of living and sleeping accommodation which are connected by a circulation link which consists of a dual-sided fireplace and built-in snug. This link opens out onto the rear courtyard, forming an extension to the living space.

    A series of external courtyard spaces, each directly related to an internal area offer different outdoor environments from private gardens to social entertaining spaces. An angled timber cladding wraps the facades with moments of foliage woven through providing a textured backdrop engaging and enlivening the interior spaces.

This is a fantastic opportunity for someone to create a stunning contemporary home - I love what the architects, LBA, have come up with!
