The Paddock, Witton-le-Wear

18 Dwellings in the Heart of Historic Village


This residential development of 18 no. dwellings within the heart of the historic village of Witton-le-Wear was commenced on site in 2006 and has recently been completed.The site is located within the conservation areas of Witton-le-Wear and adjacent to a number of listed buildings.

A highly individual scheme was produced to compliment the surrounding area, reflecting the distinctive historic townscape of the village and taking advantage of the extensive views to the south of the site.

A range of natural materials were used in the construction reflecting those found in the local area including random rubble external walls, slate roof finish and natural sandstone paving. A highly insulated timber frame construction system was used to minimise running costs for the residents. The development went onto to be become a finalist is the LABC Awards.
