The 34-year-old, who shares the home with her husband, James, and their two young children, said: "I use it for my business, but the annex could be used for absolutely anything.

"When we moved in it was set up for someone to live in - for teens or even grandparents. 

"It's a bit of a blank canvas. It's so big and it opens to the garden."
