So we are back down to just one option under consideration, one of two plots on the new housing area on the edge of town, near the bus stop.
The two plots are more or less the same width and length, with one being a corner plot (with a road on two sides). In addition, because they have built a chicane in the road to the side, the back of the plot is also partly road.
(Please keep in mind this is a housing development,and that neither of these roads are main roads – the only people who would be driving on these roads are the other residents).
The roads provide additional distance from other houses, and also on the south side, a play area (a few swings and a slide etc.) is being built, so no house overlooking the garden from that side.
For these, and various other reasons we never considered the other plot and started thinking about houses!
