This development of fifteen dwellings with associated constituted the final phase of development on the Limes site which Hinton Cook and previously worked on.

A symmetrical layout centred upon the main access into the site is proposed. The scheme is made up of individual blocks, some of these are terraced, and others detached or linked with parking off street. Dwellings are orientated such that the principal entrances overlook the street and gardens located to the rear.

The dwellings exemplify a traditional aesthetic very much in keeping with Ampthill’s rich architectural heritage. Sash windows, stone window sills and banding set against a quality brick make up the main façade elements. Walk-out balconies with vertical railing are proposed to add some amenity space and animate the street scene.

Building frontages are set back from the inner edge of the footpaths by some two meters allowing sufficient space for privacy and landscape opportunities. The access way is terminated with a turning head at the Eastern end allowing vehicle manoeuvrability and access to the car ports.
