What would you do with this house?

We are in the process of buying a 1950s house with a 1970s extension which sits in a very beautiful plot i the South of England. It is a pretty ugly looking house and we would also like to change the layout to reflect more modern living - ie open plan with separate utility, playroom, sitting room and office rooms. We would also like to extend the first floor area and add an en suite to a master bedroom.
I'd love to hear people's opinions as to what they would do with this house, how you'd remodel both the exterior and interior!
Many thanks in advance!

How exciting! I would love to be able to do a home like this- I am jealous. I am going to start upstairs. If you do not need the 4 bedrooms, I would definitely start by adding a new bathroom. I would take bedroom 4 and make the back area into a closet for the bedroom #2 and make the front part a bath. Then I would make the current tub room into a closet for bedroom #3. For the lower level, an open kitchen would be really nice. Where would you add the ensuite master? Off the snug/living area? For the exterior- I think some windows to match the original would be a good start. The 1970s are just not very nice. A carport would be nice for the entry.
