Hedgebank Para 79

Named after a principal defining characteristic of this part of Devon and the Dartmoor National Park. Hedgebank grows out of the landscape, like the hedges that frequent this beautiful area.

Cleverly nestled within its 5 acre site, the new Para 79 dwelling enjoys expansive private south facing views, articulating itself cleverly to preserve the open rolling pasture the site currently presents.

A series of solid angular walls facing west prevent light pollution facing the road, while picking up on the distinctive local rock forms that pepper the low lying valleys and significant areas of extended woodland will further improve the ecological biodiversity.
