The building was previously used as a care home and planning permission for change of use into flats had been refused. 32 Design took on the challenge of obtaining planning permission and we were successful in obtaining permission for four self-contained units including a two bedroom apartment, a one bedroom apartment and two studio apartments. The rear garden was split to accommodate ample amenity space and as the house is at the side of a busy main road, the front garden was made in to a drive to accommodate off street parking.
Externally the building has retained its traditional Edwardian style. It has regained a new lease of life with re-pointing and cleaning up of the brick work and refurbishment and renewal of windows. Internally, however, the flats provide modern, light and spacious accommodation.
