Planning & Listed Building Consent Granted in Cheltenham!

KODA architects Cheltenham have the pleasure to announce that planning permission and listed building consent application in Cheltenham for an extension to a grade II listed property.

The grade II listed, villa style property is located within the Cheltenham Central Conservation Area, close to the town centre. Built in the early 19th Century as part of a new urban extension to the town, the generous housing plots are dominated by grand regency style properties along tree lined rods. The front façade boasts fine Cotswold stone ashlar set over two storeys with cellarage. Commanding the front façade is a decorative porch with classical proportions and Doric columns.

The property had been previously altered and adapted to suit the needs of the previous owner however this did not lend itself to a new family environment in the 21st Century.

KODA architects Cheltenham were approached to carry out a series of sensitive repairs to restore the building back to its prime. In doing so to relocate the existing bathroom which subdivided a principal bedroom.

A small but carefully considered extension was proposed to the first floor to rehouse the main family bathroom aswell as a new ensuite to serve the master bedroom. The extension is proposed to be clad with a contemporary red zinc to show a clear difference between the existing and historic fabric. Both ensuite and bathrooms are to be lit from a perimeter roof light

The permissions were the result of long and detailed discussions with the planning and conservation officers at Cheltenham Borough Council. As part of the discussions, Conservation architect Fred Hamer detailed the development of the building throughout its history mapping the various alterations since the building was first built. It was here we could demonstrate that the building had once been L shaped but later an infill rear extension was added.

The project is set to commence onsite later this year – watch our instagram  for progress throughout the process.
