Future Potential

Whilst the property offers substaintial accommodation as it stands now, similar homes have had very large extensions to provide exceptionally extensive multigenerational homes. There is ample scope to the rear and huge loft space that could be used for adding additional living rooms and bedrooms. There double garage could be used for a 'granny annex' style set up, and homes of this calibre have had basement areas excavated providing leisure and entertainment facilities. Of course, any improvements of this nature would require the relevant local authority planning and building regulation consents.
