Despite a year long battle with the planners to get the design right, Andrew and Toni Leese have built a stunning Cotswold stone home in Wiltshire.
Having always dreamt of building their own home, Andrew and Toni decided the time was right to search for a plot following 16 years of living in a detached estate house.
"We found an old police station on Rightmove which was being sold as a development plot for two houses. It came with outline planning, however none of the neighbours wanted houses on the plot" explains Toni.
