The historic market town of Bishops Stortford in East Hertfordshire is one of the most desirable areas to live in the UK. Being only 29 miles from Charing Cross, the town lies within London’s Commuter Belt and is a popular area for many of London’s financial workers.
Being an affluent area, property in Bishops Stortford can command high prices. Rather than going to the expense of moving to accommodate a need for more space, converting the loft of your home can increase floor space by as much as 200 per cent. A typical loft can be converted to provide at least one if not two additional bedrooms, perhaps a bedroom with large en-suite bathroom, a home office or simply additional living space for an expanding family.
Being the closest large town to Stansted Airport, Bishop’s Stortford is also home to many who work in the tourist industry, be it hotel, catering or airline staff many of whom enjoy transient lifestyles preferring to rent property rather than become homeowners.
With careful planning, a large loft in Bishops Stortford may be converted into a self contained one bedroom or studio flat, ideal for the rental market. Particularly popular with the younger market, a light and airy attic apartment at the top of your house could provide you with additional income, and ensure that your property commands premium property should you decide to sell. In the main, loft apartments benefit from superior views of the surrounding area, and can be further enhanced with the addition of a small roof terrace.
