Remodelling of a detached house, Leckhampton, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire

A tired split-level detached 1970s house was completely revamped by cladding the old brickwork in render and timber shingles, replacing all the windows, and creating two new oriel windows. A proposed first floor extension over the garage was not carried out. The internal layout was modified to create a better use of space, forming an open plan kitchen dining area open to the lower level sitting room and linked by a short flight of stairs.
