No21A Beechpark Avenue was built in 2006 in the side garden of No21, and unlike the donor property, it's detached. The entrance is to the other side for added privacy and there's hedging to screen the house from the road and the neighbours. Inside, it's 1,722 sq ft, including a converted attic, about 16ft sq, which is used as a bedroom. Otherwise, the three official bedrooms are on the first floor, one with an ensuite shower. On the ground floor is a bay-windowed living room with a stove in the limestone fireplace and an open-plan kitchen and dining room with doors to the garden.
