Packhorse Lane is a residential development that was designed and constructed in two phases. Two 5-bedroom detached houses were designed as phase 1 and then a smaller detached house was developed for phase 2. The aesthetic of the dwellings was selected to complement the form, style and materials of the more traditional buildings in the village. The massing of the dwellings is broken up by their clever design, which includes varying eaves and ridge heights and building spans, gable projections, dormer windows, chimneys and external chimney breasts, and the use of brick mixed with some timber boarding in the external walls.
In summary, the designs followed the traditional vernacular with contemporary layouts and detailing to create an effective and site enhancing development.
