3 New Houses at Tanglewood, Silchester Road, Glenageary
Client: Elton Primus Ltd.
The development consists of the construction of three new houses to the rear of Tanglewood, a large semi-detached Victorian red brick style house situated on Silchester Road in Glenageary.
The first two houses are over 2000sqft in size, while the third has an area of 2750sqft; all three contain 3 bedrooms and a study. The houses are each laid out in an L-shape around a southwest-facing garden, onto which open up the kitchen, dining and living areas.
They are designed in a contemporary modern style, with an emphasis on a clean aesthetic and careful attention to detail to suit the speculative market. A restrained selection of materials is proposed comprising render, zinc and beige brick, selected to contrast with and clearly distinguish the new houses from the original red brick used on Tanglewood.
Vehicular and pedestrian access to the houses is provided along a shared surface avenue which runs along the east boundary of the site. A new garden design is proposed for Tanglewood, with a dining terrace and landscaped area benefiting from direct sunlight throughout the day.
