Appledore Development, England

The Appledore Development site is located along the bank of the Royal Military Canal overlooking the canal and adjacent National Trust land with rural views beyond. The Canal runs for 28 miles along the south coast and was constructed as a defence against a potential Napoleonic invasion. The Canal itself is designated as a Scheduled Ancient Monument, and the land surrounding it is classified as a Site of special Scientific Interest.

The Grade I Listed Parish Church is directly to the rear of the site with a mature tree lining which forms the edge of the historic village of Appledore. The site plan consists of 4 detached 4 bedroom houses each with private gardens overlooking the canal and National Trust land. Full planning approval was granted in late 2018 to replace the redundant warehouses with the new development, along side the restoration of the original Victoria Mill.

On the first floor there are 2 double bedrooms, one with en suite along with one single bedroom and on the second floor there is a large master suite with walk in wardrobe, en suite and a balcony terrace overlooking the canal.

The houses have been designed to reference traditional materials commonly found within the Historic village, but detailed and executed in a contemporary way. Kebony timber cladding has been used, along side hand made local clay tiles and bricks. There are green glazed brick details to the front doors with projecting canopies.

The houses have been constructed using an off site pre fabricated timber frame system as a structural frame, with a highly insulted and sealed envelope. The buildings are heated via Air Source Heat pumps.
