The planning demolishes the existing conservatory and ground floor additions at the rear of the house, to replace with a more contemporary single story extension, which would form an open plan reception room, with views over the open fields beyond, plus a third bedroom with an en-suite.
This would complement the existing sitting room with inglenook, and kitchen, plus the first floor bedrooms, but would change a dressing room to an en-suite and add a cloakroom to a former airing cupboard.
The property also benefits from good sized gardens, new central heating and updated electrics, both updated in 2018. There is also a wonderful inglenook fireplace to the original sitting room, thumb-latch wooden doors, exposed timbers and multi-pane windows.
