Niven were commissioned in 2008 by the owner of the site to develop designs for a residential building plot in the rear garden of an existing house in a Conservation Area at Middleton St George, near Darlington.
After exploring several options for the site, the best design emerged as 2 detached 4-bedroom homes. Both houses , approx. 2,500 sq ft in size, were designed with the existing properties in the local Conservation Area in mind, the external materials and decorative details reflecting those of the existing house on the site.
In 2017, Atha Developments bought the site and approached us to redesign the houses with the aim of increasing their desirability and value. The revised design included a complete redesign of the internal layout together with the addition of a garage and large garden room on the ground floor. This increased the living space and created two properties with a mix of open plan space on the ground floor and 5 bedrooms above.
