A bathroom with bath, WC, bidet and wash hand basin complete the accommodation.

The substantial, 650 sq ft annex is completely self-contained. However, the connecting door, hidden by stud partitioning, remains in situ. The main house could therefore be re-connected without difficulty.

It has its own front door and services including gas fired heating by way of a combination boiler.

The double bedroom, large living room, kitchen and bathroom are all located off a central hallway.

The annex has been been let under an Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST) for the past 14 years. The tenants are however vacating in November (2018).

o Large insulated loft space
o Cavity wall insulation

The property offers versatile accommodation and the opportunity to re-configure.

For example, the annex could be absorbed within the main house to create a larger, single dwelling or retained either as an investment opportunity (let) or for the use by an elederly relative.

A further option, subject to planning, would be to demolish the annex and create a building plot capable of accommodation a second, detached dwelling.
