COUNCIL officials are being asked to approve plans for a house on stilts at a sloping, undeveloped plot in Gourock.
A two-bedroom property is being proposed for 1 Turnberry Avenue.
Planning permission was previously granted for a house at the site but consent is now being sought for new designs.
A statement submitted to planners by Nicholson McShane Architects explains: “The new proposal is for a two-storey detached dwelling house comprising 160 square metres of internal floor area.
“Due to the sloping nature of the site, the dwelling house is positioned on stilts and accessed via a bridge which also incorporates off-street parking.”
The statement continue: “The house is designed to be unassuming from the street and modest in scale. The north elevation of the house incorporates large areas of glazing to maximise the views across the River Clyde and beyond and includes a series of outdoor seating spaces and access to a patio area at garden level.
“The materials will be of a high quality befitting the location of the site and the variety of modern buildings in the area.”
The application is pending consideration by Inverclyde Council planners.
