Historic Annan burgage plot provides 27 homes
March 4 2020
Cunninghame Housing Association has taken possession of 27 new homes on the site of a former agricultural supplies depot within the Annan town centre conservation area, Dumfries & Galloway.
Delivered by Manning Elliott Partnership the development includes conversion of a late Victorian shop and associated storage to form 5 homes, alongside a further 22 new build properties including terraced housing and flats in place of cleared warehousing.
Occupying a historic burgage plot the linear scheme is constrained by retained boundary walls with houses positioned to maximise views and openings to the front.
In a statement, the architects wrote: “Following a review of the feasibility options, it was agreed to progress the layout on the basis of creating a streetscape with houses facing onto front gardens with in curtilage parking spaces perpendicular to a shared access road.”
Conservation properties benefit from new openings formed using reclaimed stone salvaged from down takings.
