Lower Ground Floor Renovation

This stunning victorian-styled townhouse is having the lower ground floor, front & rear garden and garage area remodelled.  

This includes turning the current games room into a guest bedroom along with an en-suite bathroom and providing the laundry room with built-in storage cupboards & sink. On the exterior, at the front of the property, the front garden will have the added touch of a new garden wall with an entrance gate. At the back of the property, the existing garage will be knocked down, and replaced by a driveway, with a gate opening onto the garden.

Spec Highlights:

  • New en-suite bathroom

  • Extensive tanking

  • New parking area

  • Conversion of games room to guest bedroom.
