Each house incorporates a private balcony on first or second floor respectively offering views to the surrounding countryside and a private terrace adjacent to the living space on the ground floor giving on to the communal courtyard.

At the heart of the development is a communal courtyard designed to foster a real sense of community. The space incorporates seating, lighting and a selection of specimen trees.

There is defensible planting to the street frontage of the houses and planting to front gardens.
