The house is in need of cosmetic renovations, but as there is so much potential for extensions, it will be sold as seen.

The house is a few meters down from the conservation area, which means extension permits would be very easily obtained, no building permit needed.
The garden is big enough to extend the living room by three meters creating a HUGE living space. The kitchen wall can also be knocked down, herby making it into a very large, modern, open plan space straight into the garden.

The downstairs storage room (originally a second entrance to the house, to be able to leave bikes and dirty boots before entering the carpeted hallway) can easily be turned into a toilet or even shower room.

I presume that if the living room would be extended, the same could be done with the bedrooms upstairs, not something I have looked into, but should be possible.

The attic room has been built with keeping the original shape of the roof, but dormers could easily be installed, making the room even bigger (both neighours have opted for this solution). When the attic conversion was made 9 years ago, it was built with keeping a possible later conversion with dormers in mind, so the constructural conversion is ready to install dormers.
