This scheme, described by the Historic England Inspector as enhancing the aesthetic appreciation of the listed building, reinstates the integrity of Preston Park House through the removal of later unsympathetic additions and restoration of its original plan form and use.
The scheme provides one three-storey dwelling in the main part of the house and a part-single part two-storey dwelling in its Edwardian garden room, supplemented by a contemporary two-storey element overlooking the spacious south-facing lawn.
Also included in the scheme are three new build dwellings – one single-storey 2 bedroom ‘lodge’ and two substantial two-storey detached 4 and 5 bedroom houses. Overall, the approved scheme delivers five well-appointed dwellings with high quality garden spaces and allocated off-street parking and garaging, in this much sought after part of the town adjacent to Preston Park.
South Somerset District Council ref. 16/01620/FUL & 16/01621/LBC. Planning permission & listed building consent secured 21st June 2016.
