A very private and isolated site, near Mylor Harbour on the south coast of Cornwall. Westcountry Land Director, Justin Dodge, purchased a former cattery and 1920’s bungalow to build an exemplar environmental replacement dwelling. Located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in open countryside, Justin designed his own replacement dwelling using the latest environmental building systems to create a low-impact, Carbon Neutral house. The site extends to 1.5 acres, planning permission was granted in summer 2012 and construction work commenced in Spring 2013 and was completed in time for Justin’s family to enjoy Christmas 2013 in their new home.
This scheme will be a long-term family home for Justin, but this project illustrates the capabilities of Westcountry Land and the range of projects that we will undertake, from one-off luxury houses to major mixed use developments. This project also showcases our planning and site specific design skills together with our construction capability. The project has been featured in several publications and was shortlisted and highly commended for an international design award
