As you will see from the floor plan, the loft space is extensive, offering tremendous opportunity for the new owner to further expand the space. At around seventy foot in length and already having an unobstructed design and window installed, there would easily be enough expanse for a couple of large bedrooms and a jack & jill bathroom. The Baxi boiler is housed in the loft and as it is well lit and boarded throughout it currently makes an excellent storage area.
