Planning consent has been given for a new contemporary home on the Battledown estate in Cheltenham. The site, called Sunnyhill, has been designed to capture the renowned and far reaching views that Cheltenham is famous for. The new home’s panoramic design means it can take in views which range from the Malvern’s, across Cheltenham and all the way across Cleeve hill. It replaces a 1960s bungalow which made little use of the views the location commands.
John Everitt from Coombes Everitt Architects commented on the design:
“Set in a fantastic location the original property is quite poorly located within the site. In the new design, we’ve moved the building forward to capture the stunning views and give the home more private garden space at the rear of the property.
“Battledown has quite an eclectic mix of building types and the client was keen for something modern and contemporary. With a triple height glass atrium, a lower section of Cotswold stone and Ashlar stone cladding to frame the balconies and give the building more definition – it will complement the estate and surrounding properties.”
