The front of the house. We will keep the Victorian façade of the house, just widening the doorway to improve access. The forecourt will be accessed from the station side where it is level and space will be provided to park a mobility scooter
Rear with Yard
The rear of the property showing the single story kitchen and also the rear courtyard where we hope to provide seating for reading outside in the summer.
Side by car park
Side by car park.
The narrow hallway leads onto the stairs. The wall will be removed to add the space to the front room and we hope to install a lift for those who find stairs difficult.
Front room bay
The front room will become part of the library area and will be opened up into the large rear room
We would like to install a lift where the shelving is now. This room together with the front room will be the main library area.
The kitchen is the most dilapidated part of the house. A disabled toilet will be built in part of the space, with a sink and tea making facilities in the remainder of the space. There is also a rear door with access to the courtyard
The large front bedroom will make an ideal meeting room and can be used separately even when the library is open.
And finally the third bedroom which is actually above the station. It is envisaged several computers will be installed up here and furniture where people can bring their own devices to use the librarys’ wi-fi.

Entrance to small bed
Entrance to small bedroom
Window to bathroom
The small bedroom’s partition wall to the bathroom.
The bathroom will be stripped out and the lift will come up where the toilet is now. The remainder of the space, together with the adjacent small bedroom , which were originally one room will contain a kitchen/office for staff and a single toilet.
At the top of the stairs the landing leads to the three former bedrooms and bathroom. The doorway leads to the current bathroom.
