House Extension, Broughty Ferry

The proposal consists of a pantry and utility room extension to the western gable of a one-and-a-half storey, B listed detached dwelling, built circa 1875. The design features a new external door for access from the driveway and a new opening created in the gable wall to join the extension to the house.

The extension has a modest footprint and offers a covered external area acting as a junction between the northern driveway and the southern garden. It presents a low eave and ridge level and mimics the existing house’s proportions in a reduced scale to appear as a natural prolongation of the building.

Aiming for discretion with its shape and size, the extension is subservient to the main building, while high quality materials and carefully considered detailing elevate the historic character of the property.
