Following the right local policies, creating the right amount of additional spaces and converting the existing houses into flats will always help long term investors in their financial future. This house was rented by our client for a long time, however, after careful consideration and long term financial goals; he wanted to convert the existing house into 3 flats.
By extending the house on the ground floor level and creating an L-shaped dormer extension we were able to convert the existing house into 3 flats. On the ground floor, we have created a family size 3-bed unit and 2×1 bed flats on first and loft levels.
There are often 2 important points for possible flat conversions;
- The existing house must have min 120-130 sqm internal space without extensions,
- A family-sized unit has to be provided in the proposal.
The house was already complying with the first point and by extending the house we were able to propose the right size family house on the ground floor.
