The existing house on which this house is to be built was built in the 1930s on the southside of Strathearn Road, Broughty Ferry. As with all the other properties on Strathearn Road the house is set back from the road with the traditional south facing front garden and the larger north facing rear garden that is 1.5 metres below the front and entrance level.
The existing form of the house and the rear garden facade fails to make the most of either its level change and the large rear garden. So, we proposed to demolish it and build this new modern home instead.
