Take a look at a selection of our diverse range previous developments!
Castle Fields in Bardsey is an impressive development of 14 new build detached homes of varying types and sizes. The land was allocated by Leeds City Council for housing purposes having formerly being used as agricultural land and yet considered suitable for housing in view of its connection to the built environment of the village.
Following the agreement of an option with the land owners we undertook a period of local consultation and discussions with the local planning authority and engaged with the Leeds City Council Asset Management in order to secure the land which would provide the access.
After protracted negotiations with the Local Planning Authority which included the re-designing of a number of the proposed new homes consent was eventually granted for the site to deliver a choice of semi-detached and detached family houses in a enviable position with two sides of the site adjoining fields.
Six of the properties were pre-sold off plan, construction on site progressed well in spite of a challenging series of levels and the remaining sales followed in quick succession.
This development of five new build detached homes occupies an original farmyard setting off Littlemoor Lane on the edge of the conservation area in Thorner.
The land was bought from the Thorner and Mexborough Estate and involved one new build detached home which was to take the form of an existing barn on site together with four more traditional new build homes 3 of which adjoined the open countryside with the benefit of a landscape area beyond the south facing gardens.
As is so often the case in such an enviable semi-rural setting a number of sales were achieved off plan prior to construction beginning on site.
Keswick Vale consisted of 5 new build detached homes in a fantastic semi-rural location on the edge of the village of Bardsey.
It wasn’t always the case that this had been the proposal. Before our becoming involved planning permission had in fact been granted for 6 detached properties but it was our feeling that this resulted in a site which was too cramped and required the construction of a much wider adopted highway. We therefore returned to the drawing board and redesigned the scheme to provide just 5 houses with far more appropriate spacing. Consent was duly granted for this scheme of reduced density.
The planning application was complicated by the fact that there was a need to reduce any risk of flooding in the area and as part of the approval consent was granted for the construction of a flood compensation scheme, a lengthy bund to protect nearby homes and a raising of the levels on the site to avoid any problems in future.
All five properties are substantial family houses in excellent gardens with open views. Four of the five properties sold off plan and the fifth quickly followed.
The original property involved in this substantial and mature development site in the heart of Weetwood was known as Runnymede, a large traditional detached family home situated to the western end of the site, the position of which largely freed up the remainder of the site for further development.
At a glance it would appear that the site could have accommodated a substantial amount of housing but on further investigation it was apparent that just two substantial detached houses could be achieved in that there were a substantial number of large protected trees on site, the positions of which clearly had to be respected.
Two development platforms were identified on the site and planning permission was applied for in relation to the construction of the two detached homes of significant size.
The properties enjoy garden grounds in excess of half an acre on a sloping site with interesting topography and relatively level areas for families to enjoy the everyday outdoor space.
Both of the properties were sold off plan, the development delivered two outstanding new homes and the renovation of the original mature detached house.
This parcel of land delivered the construction of three separate and individual detached homes on land formerly owned by Moor Allerton Golf Club and which had become redundant in that MAGC required a new and more modern facility closer to their club house and car park.
Each of the properties came to us at a different moment in time and all were stand alone projects in outstanding locations. All three plots had at least one boundary adjoining the grounds of Moor Allerton Golf course.
The first property replaced an original farm house, the second property replaced a small bungalow, and the third property replaced a proposal to convert an original storage building into a single dwelling albeit in a slightly different location.
All three properties were completed for private clients and now form a delightful enclave in a setting which is probably second to none.
Ultimately this project delivered four new build detached homes which parcelled together land from four separate owners.
The topography of the site generally sloped up from front to back and each parcel of land was from part of the gardens of properties which were primarily to the rear. Initially two houses on Wood Lane approached us to say they had no use for their large sloping rear gardens and asked us to determine whether or not we would be able to obtain planning permission to redevelop them in one form or another. We began the process to acquire planning permission for 2 detached houses and part way through that process we were approached by one of the adjoining neighbours with a similar enquiry and as a result their land was bolted on to the first two plots and the application changed from two houses to three.
That wasn’t the end of it, a fourth property to the left of the development site then approached us in that they too had unwanted garden and asked similar questions. The planning application was extended to include a fourth dwelling and it was that scheme for four houses which was ultimately built out and successfully sold without delay.
Situated in a prominent Green Belt location, this project originally had planning permission (obtained by others) for the conversion of a series of farm buildings to form three linked barn conversions.
The layout of the 3 homes immediately struck us as leaving something to be desired, as each home overlooked the next, the garden spaces lacked privacy and parking facilities were congested.
On the basis of “less is sometimes more” we went back to the drawing board in order to reconsider the scheme – the intention being to deliver greater land value and at the same time respect the existing farm house so that the next generation of the owners could move back in.
Our planning application successfully delivered permission for elements of demolition, substantial extension and a large degree of conversion to form two large 4 or 5 bedroom detached barn conversions. This excellent planning permission improved the land value and the completely redesigned homes quickly attracted genuine interest.
The site was finally complemented by the decision on the part of the owners to employ us to thoroughly renovate their farm house from head to toe and the entire site now boasts three very significant rural homes.
This rural development site consisted of a derelict farmyard with a range of rundown agricultural buildings together with two neglected farmhouses. Then we came along.
Situated mid-way between Bramhope and Eccup with outstanding elevated views, the potential was apparent from square one and our feasibility study was quickly completed allowing us to assess the existing value and agree terms with the owners.
A planning application was submitted requiring consent for the change of use of the existing redundant agricultural buildings to form four detached barn conversions together with the alteration, extension and renovations of the two existing farmhouses. In addition we sought a minor diversion of an existing public right of way.
Each element of our planning application was approved and the completed development has now settled comfortably into its open rural environment.
This naturally linear site just off High Street presented a series of challenges that needed to be addressed before any meaningful development could commence.
The complications included the proximity of a nearby listed building and the need to ensure that its appearance in the conservation area was not affected. The existence of a tree preservation order, the actual location of the site in the heart of the conservation area, and a sub-standard private access road which had been unofficially used as a “rat run” connecting Bridge Avenue and High Street.
Following an extensive study of the mature specimen trees both on and off site, and after receipt of highways advice, a planning application was submitted requesting consent for two detached 5 or 6 bedroomed Georgian style limestone village houses.
Planning permission was duly granted and the two properties were quickly sold off plan. Along with the completion of the construction programme, a comprehensive package of tree works was implemented and traffic calming measures installed.
We were approached by a family who had recently inherited a small three bedroom detached house standing in large gardens in a very popular village.
The existing house occupied a fraction of the whole site and the garden had the benefit of outline planning permission for the redevelopment of a small corner of the site, the permission allowed for just one further small new home.
In preparing a feasibility study of the site, which was located on the edge of the village in a conservation area, we had to consider our options. Access was of limited width and the number of houses on the site could not reasonably be increased, as such we had to determine how best to maximise the value of the land on behalf of the family owners.
Improving and extending the existing house, together with the construction of the small approved dwelling which had outline planning consent seemed to us to be very poor use of this large plot, so we took the opportunity to “start from square one!”
Our planning application sought the demolition of the existing house followed by the redevelopment of the site to accommodate two very substantial new build homes of considerable size. After consultation with Leeds City Council Conservation Officers a series of revisions were implemented and Planning Permission quickly followed.
We were delighted to unveil two fantastic new homes which were pre-sold during the planning process and, following completion, received the Premier Guarantee Excellence Award for the Best Small Development in the UK 2012/13!
This development of three substantial new build detached homes was a challenging project from the outset.
The properties required the extensive redevelopment of the gardens associated with a large traditional detached home. On the one hand, delightful gardens which extended down to the banks of the River Wharf, and on the other partially occupied by a large quarry which required significant filling in and retention works before development could begin.
A complication of this nature would deter many developers but we were ready to take on the challenge. Our engineers and piling contractors designed a robust form of foundation and the development quickly came together with all three plots sold off plan.
Over and above our commitment to the development of these three great new homes, we also completed a substantial two storey extension on behalf of the original land owner and that extension now co-exists successfully with the original dwelling.
This development of three new build detached homes was formerly occupied by a traditional 1930’s detached property standing in generous corner gardens, which were much larger than many of its neighbours. It was clear that the gardens could comfortably accommodate additional housing.
At the request of the family who owned the property we quickly completed a feasibility study and it was apparent that the potential development value of the land would significantly exceed the value of the original house in its own right. With this in mind, the owners made the decision to work with us and allow a planning application for three detached homes to replace their home which had been in the family for many years.
Each of the proposed new homes were carefully designed and positioned in order to provide excellent family space, and to reflect the character of the area in relation to the surrounding gardens and dwelling sizes.
Although the initial planning application was disappointingly refused permission, consent was subsequently granted at appeal. Following a thorough archaeological evaluation of the site (which did not reveal anything of value) work began in earnest and all three dwellings were quickly sold.
This site was formerly occupied by a detached bungalow built in the 1960’s.The property was situated between two storey dwellings to each side, and it stood in gardens of exceptional size which adjoined the open countryside.
Following a thorough appraisal of the site, it was apparent that the value of the land with planning permission for two substantial four bedroom semi-detached family homes was in fact well in excess of the value of the original property and the owners therefore agreed terms with us.
We successfully promoted the planning application and consent was duly granted, with both properties selling off plan during the process of the planning application. The icing on the cake was when the owners of the original property agreed to buy a smaller new build 3 bedroom detached home in Collingham from us, the sale of matter duly completed and our clients successfully moved in.
Although these two developments are neighbours, the land associated with each project was introduced to us separately. We had for some time identified Burley in Wharfedale as an area in which we would like to be involved as the demand for housing is driven by the quality of this popular market town.
Our initial acquisition related to Underwood, a detached house in gardens which were easily capable of accommodating additional housing. This purchase was followed by the acquisition of Underwood’s neighbour, Glenelg, a rundown detached home which once again stood in a significantly underdeveloped site.
The two existing dwellings were demolished and the two parcels of land together delivered nine new homes all in which were designed in the style of late Victorian or early Edwardian family homes reflecting the dominant form of architecture which dictated the character of the area. The nine homes were carefully positioned alongside a running stream, sheltered by a group of delightful mature trees, which were protected by a tree preservation order.
The construction of these two projects was successfully completed and they are now a very highly regarded part of the street scene in Burley in Wharfedale.
