Keymer Road, Hassocks
Scale: 3 houses, 1 bungalow
Status: On site
Due to this safe and desirable location a scheme for residential dwellings for families was planned. The site is located between a car park and residences, and was formerly occupied by a single storey commercial unit and 4 garages. Yelo were tasked to create contemporary residential units that would sit well in the local scene and mitigate any overlooking issues from the neighbouring properties.
Three 2 bedroom houses and a single bedroom bungalow are being constructed, each with private gardens. Due to concern shown in the pre-application report, the south side of the site has been designated as the garden area and the north side is the new access road & private parking spaces, as to avoid overlooking and not to be overbearing to the residential properties to the west & north of the site.
The building is a mixture of red and dark brick designed to sit comfortably within the existing urban character of the area. In addition to rear garden space the bungalow will feature a green roof. All the properties will benefit bin and cycle storage.
