If your home’s exterior needs a bit of TLC, take inspiration from these incredible exterior transformations that have massively improved the kerb appeal of these properties.
Self-designed: Unrecognisable as a once boxy, red-brick Georgian home, this property in Shropshire oozes character thanks to its new Tudor-style façade.
With the majority of the building work carried out by the homeowner, the house now features two side extensions constructed in timber frame with infill panels. Twin gables add both width and height to the structure while providing increased accommodation internally.
Tony Holt Design: This dated bungalow is now an impressive contemporary family home, and features a symmetrical twin-gabled design, while crisp white render under a slate roof evokes modern style. Slate-effect cast concrete tiles and timber are used as interesting cladding materials to help break up the elevation and add warmth. Full-height glazing allows light to flood the interiors.
New England-Style Remodel
WSW Consultancy: This East Coast-inspired home, based in Hampshire, takes its cue from houses across the pond thanks to an extension and remodelling scheme. Replacing the dated and discoloured render and brick, the exterior is clad in timber and fresh render, while the new oak frame porch adds character.
Inglis Badrashi Loddo Architects: This 1960s semi has been extensively remodelled into a home akin to a South Beach villa. A rear extension, new storey with roof terrace and white cladding add to the home’s sleek new style, while large glazed bi-folds enable light to enter this once dark home.
Cameron Webster Architects: Previously a semi-derelict commercial building on an awkward plot, this building has been subject to a dramatic transformation. Clad in timber, the upper level appears to float over the predominantly glazed ground floor thanks to concealed steelwork.
