An exciting new scheme with a mix of 50 one and two bedroom retirement living properties designed and coordinated alongside McCarthy Stone.

The On Team were involved on Eastry Place from conception and planning through to providing the technical package and final completion.

The proposed building is a mixture of 2.5 storey and 3 storey development, with care being taken to ensure that the development sits comfortably within the street scene and reflects the character and scale of the neighbouring development. The New Dover Road elevation has been carefully designed to ensure that the development reflects the important historical nature of the road.
The proposals break down the development in to a series of separate elements with deep linked recesses, which when viewed within the street scene will have the appearance of four individual plots.
The proposal seeks to respond to the established scale and architectural character of Victorian and Edwardian frontage buildings (villas) which dominate the east side of New Dover Road (within the northern section of the conservation area).

It is designed to read as four high-quality villas set within individual plots. The scale, height and mass is in keeping with the scale of the adjacent surrounding buildings, with the adjacent Edwardian and Victorian residential storey heights being greater than modern day domestic storey heights. The building has been positioned and designed to minimise any potential impact on neighbouring properties.
