The existing property was purchased in early 2013 as a refurbishment project and a great addition to our rental portfolio.
The potential for a plot to the side was something we had looked at although we had no intention of doing anything with this for a number of years. However, after a chat with our architects we decided that we would pursue the planning application. We gained permission for a two and then subsequently a three bedroom semi-detached property in 2013.
We built and sold the new build in October 2014 and currently have the existing property rented.
