Cheltenham Civic Trust Awards 2008

New modern classical villa in Cheltenham received a commendation in the New Building category of the Cheltenham Civic Trust Awards 2008

This new house designed by Hugh Petter replaces a mid-twentieth century building within a line of listed Regency villas. The property sits comfortably within the Conservation Area setting, referring to local architectural traditions without being a copy of an historic design. There are 6-bedrooms within the property and a swimming pool set within a raised terrace at the rear. Rooms are arranged around a central, top-lit, cantilevered staircase in cast stone, minimising the need for corridors and retaining open vistas through the house. It is decorated sparingly with detailing limited to restrained Greek mouldings.
