The property has the significant advantage of a live planning permission (FUL/2003/1092) to construct a substantial two-storey extension providing a large breakfast kitchen and utility on the ground floor, and a master bedroom with en-suite and further bathroom on the first floor (as per the proposed floor plan included within this brochure for guidance only). This permission has already been partially implemented and is not therefore time limited.
