Stephenson Bell wins planning for Cheshire home - images

  • Comment
Stephenson Bell has received planning permission for this £1.3 million contemporary house in the heart of the Cheshire countryside.

The site in Bowden, Altrincham, is currently occupied by the private clients' 1960s house, which will be demolished to make way for what the practice has said is a building 'of the period in which it was conceived and constructed'.

Once completed, the large family home - to be known as Paddock House - will contrast sharply with other homes in the street, which the Manchester-based practice describe as 'mews-like'.

According to Stephenson Bell, the four-storey proposal 're-instates the high back of pavement wall which existed before the 1960s development took place'.

The building will boast a 'natural, chlorine-free pool' which will use plants to clean the water; a sedum-clad roof; and a large underground rainwater run-off storage tank.

A launch meeting is planned for next week and the practice expects work - scheduled to take 18 months - to start by the end of the year.
