  • Bedrooms: 5

There is great potential to re-model the property to form a self-contained annexe by converting the existing integral garage into a lounge, the dining room into a bedroom with an en-suite, and there are facilities available for an independent door access. This would provide accommodation for a dependant relative or potential home and income.
