With regards to single storey, the maximum you could go was 21-22sq house. Eden Brae has about 4 designs that are by far the best I could see. We decided…

Have you checked Marina 35/37 from Eden Brae? Or Impression 33 from wisdom homes?

I'm guessing it's a double storey, how big are you thinking?

We live in a 30sq home, no point in upgrading if less than 35.

Couldn't find Delta, but Metro won't fit because of its depth. The regulations mean they cannot be more than 19.5m
