Plans to convert the attic of a family home garage into a holiday let have been lodged with East Lothian Council.
The proposals for the home in Inveresk, Musselburgh, would see the two car garage turned into a studio-style accommodation with a dormer extension added to its roof to create a large balcony window.
Applicants Mike and Linda Cessford said the garage would then be used for a ‘commercial holiday let’ .
The plans for the building would see the two car spaces retained in the ground floor of the garage with a new kitchen/utility area added to the lower floor along with stairs leading to the attic.
In the attic itself it is proposed to create a snug area, bedroom and bathroom.
The plans for the new holiday let propose reusing existing Spanish clay tiles on the new main roof and adding a UPVC gable end window as well as a frosted glass gable end window in the new shower room.
The plans would also maintain the double garage doors as entry into the ground floor which will have the kitchen and stairs into the living space upstairs.
Inveresk lies to the south of Musselburgh and is a conservation village centred around rows of 17th and 18th century buildings with more modern housing added in recent years.
The property proposed for the new holiday let is on Crookston Road. The application details can be viewed on East Lothian Council’s planning portal.
