In addition there is a detached double garage and planning permission has also been granted to build ancillary accommodation in the rear garden, to the rear of the main replacement dwelling house, which extends to some 1,200 sq.ft. The ancillary accommodation is, in fact built and ready to be fitted out which would offer potential for an incoming purchaser to occupy this accommodation whilst the bungalow is demolished and the new house built.
