I think that you should maybe look to make the style more transitional. Silverhill is inspired by Avignon which has elements of French and Italian whereas your app is mainly Italian and would maybe fit more in costal or central parts of the WL.
Right now I think it clashes a lot with Varner and neighbouring Reach ones.
Maybe look at Plumm which is a great transition castle between the Reach and Western lands style.
It's nonetheless nice to see you apply for this project and hope to see it started soon!
When I decide to come on, I can work on making the north-western areas of Varner be a little more Westerlands-y if that helps create a more smooth transition.
Considering Doggett, Bettley and Kyndall are part of a salient into to the Riverlands I don't think an Italian style would fit that part of the Westerlands.I agree with Nuggs that this application might (in its current state) better fit a house in the coastal or central parts of the Westerlands, such as Garner, Doggett, or Kyndall, to name a few.

As for the location of this application, I think it would be a nice fit for Garner or Greenfield.
1.The mountain border isn't that steep between the current blackwood vale and Bettley/Kyndall/Doggett and more so the border is formed by the streams of Eagles Claw.
EStoop, couldn't an italianate then slowly more swiss influenced style work for that northern coast, before eventually becoming more Germanic near the riverlands work?
I'd like to see some more variation of house style if it is to be northern coast or southern westerlands as currently it seems too much like the Central Westerlands Megabuild to me. There's a lot of potential with the westerlands palette, you can experiment more with shape and form of structures though. Maybe think in terms of evolution to a building like extensions, staircases, dormers and covered balconies.
Yes, I want to make the land hilly. The roads are straight in the plans because I don't know yet where exactly the hills will be so I left them straight for now and will later make them go through the "valleys" (I don't know how its called).I also like the new tests.
However, I don't see much in the way of hills in your plan, which looks to me like its relatively flat with those straight roads. Are these going along ridgelines? I mention this because Varner to the south is getting a few steeper hills in its western corner and Hamell could continue that.
