Dolphin Cottage, 65 Downview Road, was built in the 1940’s and has been extended and re-decorated to create a spacious family home where the current owners have restored and improved many features both internally and externally. The property benefits from planning permission for a ground floor 400 sq ft extension (FP/141/17/HH). The plans have been designed specifically to complement the existing attractive rear elevation whilst maintain pleasant views from the 1st floor over the rear garden. The plans include a new kitchen/breakfast room 20 x 12 ft maximum interconnecting with a new dining/garden room 19ft x 18ft with panoramic views into the garden. The overall scheme also provides options to convert the existing kitchen into a study interconnecting with the dining/garden room; and converting the existing dining room into a 4th double bedroom complete with ensuite shower room and fitted wardrobes. Previously planning permission was granted (FP/11/05) for a two-storey rear extension which would have provided for a further bedroom on the 1st floor.
Currently, the existing ground floor comprises of a large entrance hall, sitting room with fireplace, kitchen breakfast room and a separate dining room with original stained glass porthole windows. At the rear of the house there is a sun room which the current owners inform us has foundations to accommodate a further first floor extension and there’s a useful utility room with W.C. Upstairs there are three double bedrooms, all with built in storage, a large landing with a study area and access to the family bathroom which is light and bright with a modern white suite. The rear garden is a particular feature of the house being mainly laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs and has a terraced area adjacent to the property and a useful greenhouse. A further section of garden at the very rear of the plot has a summer house and shed. At the front of the property there is a large driveway with off road parking for several cars and access to the single garage which has power and light.
