The development

This development is situated across two walled gardens; The North Walled Garden contains eight, four bedroom semi-detached properties that have been designed to a contemporary finish, incorporating large south facing windows maximising capture of natural light. The Southern Walled Garden contains a further six, five bedroom semi-detached properties. These properties have been finished in a more traditional style in order to complement the surrounding dwellings.

The Setting

The Walled Garden originally served the 18th Century Brandling Hall and was, more recently, home to a garden centre and aquatics retailer. Its sale for redevelopment has supported the much vaunted improvement programme at Newcastle Racecourse. In an area renowned for its landscaping and wildlife, the homes will be built sympathetic to their surroundings with plenty of natural light and open, green spaces.

To retain the natural look of the site when viewed from a distance, the homes in the north garden will have sedum (grass) roofs, while the six, five bedroomed properties in the south garden will have zinc roofs, resembling those of greenhouses.
