The new development, to be built by Churcham Homes, will regenerate a redundant brownfield site and former business park located in Ullenwood.

Architects coombes:everitt have designed the properties at Ullenwood Court, which will replace a range of disused buildings which currently sit on the land.

Working to the height of the original buildings, the new houses are based on a large ground-floor footprint with a smaller second storey. Many of them have living areas upstairs to make the most of sweeping countryside views.

There are 14 different variants of home ranging from 2,500 to 6000 square feet, but each is tweaked and bespoke to its individual plot to create 26 unique, contemporary homes.

Some of the larger properties feature a swimming pool and gym.

These new homes set in open parkland are likely to be in high demand when building by Churcham Homes begins.

Green roofs and natural stone will be widely used to ensure that views into the site from the Cotswold Way, which runs along the side, are not negatively affected.

John Everitt, director at coombes:everitt architects

John Everitt, director at coombes:everitt architects, said: "Working on such a spectacular site in this AONB to design a development in keeping with the surrounding landscape was a challenge we were thrilled to take on.

"Every plot has its own orientation and topography, and it has been exciting to adapt and design the properties accordingly.

"Each home has been positioned and then re-configured internally to relate to the outlook and setting that it sits within.

"We're confident these high-end, contemporary, family homes will nestle neatly into the surrounding countryside with minimal disruption, and we're pleased that this has been backed up by planning approval by Cotswold District Council."
