The property has been sympathetically extended prior to the current ownership, in more recent years a double garage was built to incorporate an upper level storage/workshop facility and off street driveway parking. Furthermore, with ample room available in the side courtyard, there is the option to extend the kitchen creating an open plan kitchen/diner area subject to planning permission.
