2 Bed pre-1900 End Terrace

The dwelling is in a reasonably good structural condition and requires only a proportion of small works to ensure that maintenance is up to a sufficient standard. Internally the property would benefit significantly from a scheme of modernisation and decoration throughout.

There exists a proportion of notable architectural details within the dwellings of this area, with many incorporating decorative dentil & string courses. Additionally, many of the properties benefit from a front yard, which inherently creates an aspect of defensible space and also provides an opportunity for future utilisation.

The proposed design of the house includes the roof space converted into a home office and small extension to the kitchen. By extending the kitchen this allowed the out-house to be converted into a cloakroom with access through kitchen. It is proposed that all the walls, floors and roofs are thermally upgraded using where possible space saving insulation such as Spacetherm aerogel board.

It is proposed to fit 2.2KW photo-voltaic panels to the roof. Based on 50% export to grid, this system would generate £950 in income and savings for the house.
