Gartnavel bungalow to make way a 6-bed villa
November 11 2022
Planners are being asked to give their consent to the demolition of the 1960s villa on the corner of Leicester Avenue to make way for a larger home that more than doubles the built footprint to 300sq/m.
Finished in blonde sandstone, off-white render and black concrete tiles the new home takes its cue from the more substantive Victorian villas further along the street and includes parking for five vehicles in an attached garage.
In a design statement, the applicant wrote: "The proposal has been designed in a modern contemporary architectural language borrowing from the scale and architectural character of the neighbouring Victorian sandstone villas within the Glasgow West Conservation Area, in particular the vertical proportion and alignment of the windows, materiality, pitched roof and dormers.
"The external ground level has been excavated up to 1.75m and the proposed finished ground floor level has been lowered 1.36m to reduce the visual impact of the building within its context."
Plans are in place to develop land at Bingham's Pond, opposite, to provide 49 apartments.
