Planning Permission has been granted for extension of the property to provide an additional sitting room, bathroom and bedroom. The consent for a single storey extension to the front of the existing garage to bring level with the front building line of the property, to create a bedroom, bathroom and internal alterations to the store rooms to create a lounge and kitchen dining area were approved by Newark and Sherwood District Council in March 2017 under Planning Reference: 17/00443/FUL and the plans can be inspected on Newark and Sherwood District Council's website or at Richard Watkinson and Partners' offices.

The bungalow as existing is very spacious indeed but if a purchaser is looking for an even larger property the extension would be built and having regard to the plot size and location of the property would undoubtedly be reflected in a substantially increased value.
