The stunning thatched Double Garage/Workshop has been refurbished in recent years and includes a superb first floor Loft Room which would be ideal as a Home Office. In the Agent’s opinion, both the Coach House and the Double Garage have potential for conversion, subject to the necessary planning consents.
