Housing. Draethen, Nr Caerphilly.
3 no. 5 bedroom houses [320 m2 per unit]. Owner developers.
Owner developers. The land comprised of a pair of small disused quarries with derelict commercial kennels . Location on the outskirts of a very picturesque village, with lovely panoramas over the Rhymney valley. The owner developers negotiated conservation area consent and development approval.
Designs conceived with houses positioned in the landscape according to the height and profile of existing quarry tops nearby, with existing mature trees screening the development from in front and giving a green backdrop behind.
I recently saw for sale and passed by; the site has been developed with significant differences to my original site layout and landscaping, so that the development is much more prominent in the landscape, when was originally conceived to sit more modestly.
