Whilst the current property is in need of updating and has potential to be reconfigured and extended to form a most desirable family home, there is also potential, subject to planning, given the overall size of the plot and planning precedents in the locality to develop a scheme to replace the existing building with either an apartment building or pair of semidetached houses.

The current building is surrounded by gardens on all four sides with a substantial area of parking to the front.
