Victorian Detached


Completely transform this unique detached Victorian property to provide increased living space and a comfortable home for a professional couple.


Fully project managed by Upright Construction the build consisted of a re-design internally, new 2 storey rear extension, loft conversion, complete home refurbishment and external landscaping.

Due to the location and elevation of the property being 2.5m higher than the pavement level a scaffold loading bay was installed within the drive.  This provided clearer access to the house and an increased area to work, whilst also ensuring the safety of our team.


Over a 16 week build period, the house gained 30 square meters.  The rear extension boasts under floor heating and full glazing with french doors leading to the newly landscaped garden.

The homes elevated plot has been maximised by installing full-width glazing to the loft bedroom, providing fantastic views over Reigate and the Surrey Hills.


“We were keen to work with a local builder and were impressed with Upright’s comment that they ‘cannot afford to do a bad job as Reigate/Redhill is a small place’.

Upright worked closely with us from the outset to identify opportunities to reduce cost without compromising what we wanted to achieve from the project. The work started on the committed dates and we were impressed from the outset with the energy the Upright team brought. We saw tangible progress every day and the work finished on time. The project manager was on site every day and always available if we had any questions. We chose to stay in the house whilst the work was done, the Upright team respected it was our home and worked hard to keep noise and disruption to a minimum. We are very pleased with the finished project and are grateful to Upright for making it a success. We have no hesitation in recommending them.”

We have engaged Upright on a number of occasions for extensive extension and remodelling projects at our property in Reigate. The most recent project comprised of a very large 2 story extension & remodelling project incorporating an annex for a family member. Upright have carried out similar projects for a number of our neighbours in the road & have certainly built a good reputation in this area.
