We are pleased to announce that we have submitted planning for a single storey rear extension to a property within the Progress Estate Conservation Area in Eltham.
The Council designated the whole of the Progress Estate as a conservation area in 1971. In so doing they set the area apart as a unique residential area with certain common characteristics between many of the properties, including the use of clay roof tiles or natural slate, and white pebble-dash render to the exterior. These common characteristics give the area a fairly uniform appearance.
It is a 2 storey house with entrance within the front elevation. The house forms part of a terrace of properties constructed in the early 20th Century to house World War 1 munition workers.
The house is within the Conservation Area, some grouped around ‘village greens’, have a variety of styles. The architectural unity of the houses on the estate contributes to its distinctive character. The estate overall is residential in character.
