Planning & Building Regs. - Comprehensive plans for possible extension works are held on-file within our office and can be perused by interested parties. Any permissions obtained have since lapsed and interested parties must satisfy themselves that such permissions may be gained in the future.

Potential/Suggested Floor Plan - We understand from the vendor that it is entirely possible to retain the lift and add in a staircase should one wish. The first floor of the property is circa 1000 sq ft and we believe with a simple reconfiguration this floor could offer either three bedrooms and ensuite to a master or even four bedrooms to help better suit families. The over 3000 sq ft of the property is substantial and it is in a great central Rawdon position and we believe that there are numerous layout potentials and these are reasonably straight forward to create. We are happy to accommodate viewings with architects and can make recommendations if required.
