The Boatyard development offers 26 apartments and 4 town houses in a conservation area, characterised by open spaces. A sensitive design approach was utilised on the scheme, incorporating existing trees and landscape elements into the design. Screened by tall trees, the remarkable development is set in its own private grounds with many of the apartments offering views over the canal from individual balconies and terraces. A communal secure play area for young children is also provided along with a dedicated parking space for each home

The new homes are built to generous space standards with modern, energy saving fixtures and fittings.  BPTW was retained by contractor Bugler for the delivery of the technical design phase.

The scheme was shortlisted in the First Time Buyer Readers Awards for the Best Medium Development category.
