The proposed properties have been designed by an award-winning architect and are sensitive to their surroundings, adopting the forms and materials of the local rural vernacular, characterised by elevations of local brick and timber weatherboarding, clay tiled roofs and timber or aluminium clad timber windows. The site extends to about 1.5 acres, with each property having ample parking, a private garden and an attractive rural outlook with far-reaching countryside views.
