Mains of Balgay farm conversion on track
July 10 2017convert and extend an existing barn and workshop at mains of Balgay, Dundee, to form five family houses.
This work will entail removal of a row of lock-up garages and a majority of redundant farm structures, excepting an existing barn which will be converted for residential use, to make room for three brick-clad new build homes, each with their own double garage, solar panels and large south facing gardens.
In their design statement the architect said: “The existing barn would be converted into a two storey dwelling containing three bedrooms. This house would retain the traditional stone walls and slate roof of the existing building and insert contemporary composite aluminium/timber windows and doors into the fabric. The existing openings in the boundary wall to the house at 42 Elliot Road would be built up in stone to preserve and enhance the neighbour’s amenity.”
