Planning consent: Planning consent was obtained in February 2020 for the demolition of the existing garage, together with the remodelling of the ground floor, first floor bedrooms and extensions within the main dwelling.

The garage block is to be demolished and moved 45 degrees to provide two double bedrooms with en suite facilities and, at garden level, a sitting room/party room, gym and wine store area, opening onto the garden.

Within the main dwelling the existing kitchen is to be knocked through into an existing inner conservatory creating a substantial kitchen/diner.

At first floor there is to be the creation of a large double bedroom over the conservatory below, the creation of an additional fourth bedroom/dressing room and the reconfiguration of bedroom two to include an en suite shower room.

Outside there will be a new two car garage.

In addition there is scope to extend the outer conservatory further into the garden in the form of an Orangery, creating substantial sitting/dining accommodation.

Outside: the gardens are lovely and mature with a large terrace to the rear of the house leading down to a large lawn and further stone terrace and then to a decent sized vegetable garden which has another access out to the road. There is a summer house, two good sized sheds and two greenhouses.
