Situated a short walk/drive from the centre of Newport, the Islands County town, this unusual mid-terrace house is situated in a popular residential road and offers a blank canvas for the new owners to complete a programme of upgrading and refurbishment that have been commenced but require completion.
The property is unusual in that while the ground floor accommodation runs the full length of the building, it has first floor accommodation at the front and separately again, via a second staircase, at the rear. This gives scope and potential for a small annexe to the rear or potentially an office/study, given the current enthusiasm for home working.
A planning application has been lodged with the local authority to remove a chimney breast and re-shape the staircase to the first floor at the front, though there is, of course, no obligation on the new owner to proceed with these works, if the consent is granted. Other properties in the road have exploited the roof space to provide additional bedrooms and this is anther option, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable.
A planning Application has been lodged with the Isle of Wight Council under Ref 19/01629/LBC for demolition of outbuilding and chimney stack; proposed internal and external alterations including replacement windows, new timber cladding on 19th December 2020, subject to conditions. At the time of publication the application has yet to be determined.
