The bungalow is double glazed and centrally heated by gas-fired radiators. There is tremendous potential to extend and develop the property and applicants may wish to explore the possibility of converting the roof space and creating a new open plan living room and kitchen across the back of the building to take advantage of the wonderful garden views.
