Home Group, working in conjunction with North Yorkshire County Council, redeveloped the site of a former elderly persons care home for general needs, affordable housing comprising 14 two bedroom and 13 three bedroom houses.
The site is adjacent to Ripon conservation area and contained numerous high quality specimen trees which were retained within the development. The existing stone boundary garden wall was retained and the dwellings were designed to reflect the local vernacular style with a variety of roof and wall materials. The development integrates well with the local urban grain and scale. The scheme received a commendation from the Ripon Town Council.
