New Build Warrington

Our client had the rare and exciting opportunity of purchasing 1 of 3 plots of land that had recently come to the market, situated in Bold Heath just outside Warrington. The generous plot, set back from the A57 Warrington Road, overlooks Mersey Valley Golf and County Club and benefits from clear unobstructed views to the side and rear – a perfect location for a new build property.

We worked closely with our clients in the first instance, to ascertain their brief and detailed requirements, which comprised of a large open plan kitchen/dining/snug area providing family and entertaining space, with direct access to a utility and Ground floor WC. A secondary reception room is provided directly off a large a welcoming hallway. The open stairs lead you to a first floor which is occupied by 3 large double bedrooms, one of which is guest room with en-suite facilities, the master bedroom is complete with walk in wardrobe and a large en-suite. The master bathroom is situated just off the main stair core. The Second floor is occupied by two large double bedrooms and a further bathroom. In order to maximise natural daylight throughout the house, full height atrium glazing is incorporated, spanning the full height of the house, this coupled with two large roof lights directly above the atrium provides masses of natural daylight and a welcoming, warm and inviting entrance area to the new build dwelling.

As part of their detailed planning submission we introduced a planning consultant, that we have a longstanding working relationship with, to the project. His expertise ensured that our collective design covered all aspects of what could be a tricky application given the constraints put upon a new build property within greenbelt.

By considering all aspects of the new build application at an early stage, this ensures that the relevant information is submitted to the local authority in the first instance, which helps to achieve a decision being made within the statutory time-frames, which in turn enables our client to start works on site sooner rather than later.

Our design is sympathetic in relation to providing a modest 5 bedroomed detached new build dwelling, complete with standalone 2 and ½ car garage/workshop. The external appearance looks to create a modern dwelling via the use of dark grey window/door frames and fascia’s and soffits, large rear facing sliding doors, a contemporary flat roof system that allows the use of two large roof lanterns directly above the open plan kitchen/dining area, and an external Olde English buff brick that combines a modern contemporary look with the retained character of the surrounding farm house buildings.

A planning decision is expected in October 2019 with works due to start on site early in 2020. Refer to our regular news feed for progress updates on the new build.
