Vendors Views 
The vendor feels the property would be perfect for a family with an elderly relative, or a teenager wanting some space. It has a great deal of options available to a variety of people. “I have taken £4200pa in rent from the Annexe.
I converted bedroom two into a holiday let or Consulting Rooms.
A Room to let at £300 + a week. Lincoln is so short of B&B and weekly rentals, we have the Cathedral, Magna Carta Uphill and the Wolds.”The second Annexe would make an excellent commercial base subject to permission,which should not be difficult”
