House on the Moor, Chagford, Devon
Meldon heights sits high on the Moor above the village of Chagford. Our clients were lucky enough to find a poor quality bungalow on a large plot with incredible views. The plan is to demolish the existing building to foundation level and rebuild on the same footprint, saving on groundworks but also on VAT, new-builds being rated at zero. Exposure to the elements is a big issue this high up so the emphasis is on robust materials and large overhangs to create sheltered spaces. Currently at pre-planning stage.
