Rental valuations indicate the four en-suite rooms and the annexe room will fetch about £650 each per month and the other three rooms between £500-550. Due to the new train station and ongoing developments, property values in the area are expected to further appreciate in future.
• It is a large home and will appeal to families requiring space. A wing of the house accessed through the garage door could be converted to a separate household/ granny annexe fairly easily (STPP). The garage is larger than average sized and is well suited for 'garage conversion'.
