Development details

Social Rent / Start-up Homes
4 x1 bed mews
Capsel Homes


This development was funded by Welsh Government’s Innovative Housing Funding stream and delivered in partnership with the Welsh School of Architecture.  The concept was to create a development that was specifically designed to match the ‘wants and needs’ for under 35’s.


Firstly, we undertook a survey that included interviews, focus groups and telephone surveys. The young people told us they wanted 2 storey modern, mews-style properties.  Location, gardens, driveways, and privacy were their top priorities with storage, office space and environmental considerations also important.


Cwrt Llwyfen is located on a former run-down garage site in Caldicot and is built to the highest development standards using local skills and resources wherever possible.


Each home has been built to sustainable energy efficient standards with an impressive SAP (Standard Assessment Procedure) energy rating of over 100.


Extra height enhances the feeling of spaciousness in these airy, eco-friendly homes, designed for relaxed, modern living.


The homes feature a large en-suite bedroom, with an elevated area perfect as a study, overlooking a large open plan living and dining room.  Large French-doors lead from the lounge onto a good-sized private garden.


A separate, fully fitted kitchen overlooks the street and designated parking space.


Cwrt Llwyfen was the winner of the 2020 ‘Innovation’ award at the prestigious Constructing Excellence in Wales awards in recognition of our unique ‘start up slim down concept’.
