The development of this new house build in Ayrshire involved the replacement of an existing dilapidated house.
The rebuilding of the house facilitated the repositioning of the building to achieve an enlarged and more useable rear garden area, which will maximise the sunny southerly aspect. The repositioning of the new house created a building line which was more consistent with the rest of Ardlochan Road.
