New plans have been submitted to replace the existing house at No.8 Cliff Parade, Penarth with a new ultra-modern two-storey detached house with flat-roof terrace.
The design for the new house is by the distinguished award-winning local architect Chris Loyn, who is president of the Penarth Civic Society.
The development involves demolishing the existing No. 8 Cliff Parade – itself worth £850,000 – and replacing it with a single detached ultra-modern house which is “modern, ‘clean’ and unfussy, with references to the art deco style” and is to be “visually warm, not clinical, with high levels of glazing ” .
Primary living space and master bedroom will be on the first floor, the kitchen will be on th ground floor
The new planning application to the Vale of Glamorgan Council follows an earlier application made in 2015 which proposed to build 2 – rather-more – “art-deco” detached homes on the same site. That scheme was recommended for refusal by Penarth Town Council’s planning committee and was withdrawn before being considered by the Vale of Glamorgan Council’s planning committee
However some people considered that those [never-built] art-deco houses – with their curved lines – matched and complimented the design of “Sea Roads ” – the 1939 Grade II Listed art-deco house now owned by soccer star Joe Ledley which is just across the road and is in the process of refurbishment.
The existing No.8 Cliff Parade is a modern (1986 designed) detached timber-framed house and garage set on a corner plot at the southern end of Cliff Parade. This now – once again – faces demolition.
Both the existing No.8 and the proposed new house will stand just a few yards from the cliff edge – separated from it by only a narrow public footpath and grassed verge .
