The largest town on the Tendring Peninsula, the once booming holiday destination of the 1950s – 1970s is today a much sleepier affair. The seaside resort of Clacton-on-Sea is today a popular retirement location with residential accommodation to suit. Whilst still attracting summer visitors who come to enjoy the beaches, pier, amusements and theatres of Clacton-on-Sea, a large proportion of Clacton’s permanent residents are of retirement age; people who choose to live out their later years by the hypnotic beauty of the seaside.
As with many others of Britain’s seaside resorts, Clacton-on-Sea has a high proportion of bungalows, once regarded as the property of choice for an ageing population. Thankfully many more people are now seeing the potential that the humble bungalow has to offer, and more are being bought to be transformed into family homes.
More often than not, bungalows have a larger than average footprint on a larger than average plot of land. Providing planning permission allows, a bungalow can be nearly doubled in size by carrying out a loft conversion; therefore vastly increasing the floor space offered by the property without reducing any outside space.
With careful planning, the existing downstairs rooms can be reconfigured to create large open plan kitchen diners, and perhaps as many as three bedrooms can be created in the loft conversion.
