In brief: Normal variation
There is a great deal of variation in the amount of sleep individuals require, including variation by age.
If you are able to sleep through the night and wake up feeling rested, sleeping more than you feel is normal may not be a problem. If you are not able to get enough sleep, or feel tired throughout the day, consult a physician as you may not be sleeping well during the night.

age, medications, baseline needs, hard wire of brain, other medical condition, other psychiatric conditions all play a role in this as well as intrinsic sleep conditions like narcolepsy or sleep apnea.
