Garden Room Extension
Planning was granted in 2002 for a very spacious garden room, approx. 60 sq. mts of floor area.
Foundations were laid however the work was not completed.
This area is a sun trap and would make a very spacious garden room.
It would also be ideal for future use to developed into a second kitchen/breakfast room, approx. 40 sq. mts and a bedroom, approx 20 sq. mts to create a separate self contained unit. There is a tranquil garden sitting area and off street parking.
There is comfortable off street parking for 3 cars. However 5 cars can be parked at any one time.
On the same level and directly outside the kitchen breakfast dining area of the house is a large wooden patio, leading into the mature planted shrub and flower garden.
