Planning permission was granted in 2014 for a full basement and loft bedroom extension, which was implemented in 2015 by the creation of the loft bedroom. This enables the purchaser to add an additional 1,000 sq. ft. of living space stretching under the house and in part under the garden. Plans are available upon request.
