A Wiltshire property increased in value by over £100,000 after its extensive renovation was featured on BBC’s Homes Under the Hammer.

The house, located in Chippenham, was visited by presenter Martin Roberts after being selected for the popular daytime show on BBC One.

The episode tracked the renovation of the house over six months from when it was bought at auction by Trudy and husband Andrew.

When the three-bed semi-detached home went “under the hammer”, in May 2022, the guide price was £195,000.

But after Trudy and Andrew snapped it up for £237,000, the house underwent a £75,000 transformation which saw its value rise to between £315,000 and £320,000.

The main change was to knock down a wall between the kitchen and dining room to create an open plan home.

The bathroom was also extended while significant work was put into redecorating the house and landscaping the garden.

Chris Brooking, of Strakers Estate Agents, estimated the property had a letting value of £1,100 a month.

He said: “I think the property has been very nicely refurbished.

“Taking the wall out between the kitchen and the dining room is definitely a good move, it’s something you need to do and something people are looking for.”

Trudy and Andrew will let the property to their friend Alisson and her husband long term.
