The Property x . For many years, Bransby Lodge was divided into a four bedroom family home with a two bedroom self contained apartment on the lower ground floor. In recent years, to accommodate the growing generations of family, the property was converted to provide one large five/six bedroom property over three floors. If desired, the ground floor could once again be used as a self contained separate two bedroom apartment with lovely open plan living room, kitchen, bathroom and study area. The ground floor and first floor would then provide four bedroom living accommodation with open plan kitchen and living room, conservatory, balcony, family bathroom and two en suite shower rooms. With so much flexibility, the property also lends itself to a B & B, holiday rental (with an assessed potential of up to 42,000 per year) or to those with a home business. With so much versatility, the lodge is one of those properties that really needs to be viewed to be fully appreciated.

Holiday Letting Potential x . The property is currently used as a private residence but has letting appeal either as a whole home or split as one four bedroom apartment and one two bedroom apartment (if the lower ground floor was converted back to a separate flat). Award winning holiday letting company Helpful Holidays, www.helpfulholidays.co.uk, have assessed the property for the current owners to have a potential income of up to 42,000 per year.
