PLANS for home improvements have been proposed at a detached property in a rural village.

Halton Grange, on Front Street, Wall, had an application submitted by the agent Howarth Litchfield to build a new garage and single-storey extension as part of the plans.

The existing house consists of both the original Edwardian house ‘Halton Grange’ and a smaller dwelling ‘Halton Cottage’.

The house, which was constructed in 1913, is not visible from the road.

The design and access statement outlined part of the proposals, including the new single-storey double garage to suit modern car sizes to replace the converted existing garage.

Also proposed was an entrance porch to the east to replace the existing smaller porch; an entrance porch to the south elevation to replace the existing conservatory added in 2003, and an orangery to the rear of the house to provide adequate dining space and improved internal layout.

A link will be created between Halton Grange and Halton Cottage to create one house with additional accommodation.

"The aesthetic brief is to form one cohesive dwelling with a consistent Edwardian appearance to reflect the original period and character of Halton Grange," the statement said.

The rear of the house will be developed into an apartment (ancillary accommodation) for a family member.
