The Vale of Glamorgan Council’s planners are considering a scheme which involves flattening this house overlooking the sea in Plymouth Road – which was sold last year for £740,000 –  and building a new one in its place

A luxury detached house overlooking the sea and Cliff Walk – which changed hands last year for £725,000 –  may be demolished under a planning application now under consideration by the Vale of Glamorgan Council planning department.

The house is No 149 Plymouth Road – which is one of a series of large detached houses standing in their own grounds – many of which have been recently renovated and extended.

The proposed design of the replacement house which would be erected on the site of the original home is being considered by the Vale of Glamorgan Council. A Penarth Town Council planning officer has informed the Vale Council that Penarth Council has no objection to the scheme

A earlier planning application had been made to renovate and extend the original house but this scheme was withdrawn in December and now a new proposal has been submitted  to completely demolish the original house and replace it with the design above.

    I must say if I had spend three quarters of a million on a house, the last thing I’d do is knock it down, but each to their own and the new design looks good. Great place to live with those views.

    I do wonder sometimes how modern houses, heavily insulated with foam and the like, and thrown up very quickly will stand the test of time compared to more traditional construction.

      they’ll stand the test of time like any other, no reason to be ‘thrown up very quickly’ 😉

      trouble is those expansive stark bright white rendered surfaces are more prone to weathering and staining more than anything else.

    A new “Scheme?” I suspect you mean “Planning Application”.

    Back to form already.

  3. sjleworthy says:

    Why not, it’ll certainly fit in with the increasingly popular style of architecture thats happening up there.

  4. PB says:

    new builds don’t pay vat of 20%, extensions and renovations do. so it might make sense to demolish and rebuild in some cases

  5. Craig says:

    Apparently all this to build a “gym”

  6. Oh dear says:

    Certainly not sustainable development.
