We have secured Planning permission for a new house near Newport upon Tay, overlooking the Firth of Tay and across the water to Dundee. The house is positioned in a gently sloping parkland setting, against a backdrop of trees, sinking slightly into the slope. On approach the house is overtly closed down and private, and built up in stone reclaimed from nearby ruins. On the other side the house is more open and luxuriates in the open views.
