Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

A super, ultra spacious, two bedroom, second floor apartment with panoramic views across Morecambe Bay and on to the Lake District peaks and, magically for an apartment, an enormously kitchen, where at least 6/8 people really can wine and dine!

Why choose this apartment?

This is a perfect place for local or holiday home purchasers.

Why? Well both such home makers are invariably looking for a combination of the delights of nature and scenery, coupled to the option of a gentle or more rugged outdoor life. Even the stairs fit that bill here, with short flights and mini landings!!

Do you want to be able to enjoy sharing meal times with grand children or entertaining friends in a farmhouse sized kitchen but are invariably faced with a 'box-room' sized space in other alternative properties? You won't find that here, it's light, bright and spacious. It also has a decent sized lounge for relaxing, neither space compromising the options of sharing and conviviality with the option of peace and quiet, coupled with a fabulous visual connection with nature, rain or shine.

This apartment offers a superb combination of generous space, great layout and lofty position with large bay windows; providing these buyers with a near perfect solution.

This very spacious apartment has double glazing and full gas central heating throughout, ensuring a warm, quiet and relaxing environment in which to enjoy oneself or share with guests.

There is a welcoming HALLWAY, with a cupboard for hats, coats, wellies, vacuum cleaner (etc), which links the two bedrooms, lounge, bathroom and kitchen.

One advantage of this extended hallway is that any socializing in the kitchen does not disturb more cerebral goings on in other parts of the apartment!! Both BEDROOMS are large doubles with excellent built in wardrobes, the larger one at the front has additional storage space, including a built in vanity unit.

This larger one overlooks Morecambe bay via its four part bay windows, whilst the slightly smaller double at the back looks out towards school playing fields. Although the smaller of the two bedrooms, the current owners not only made this their main bedroom but fitted a small desk (and BT sockets), giving a dual role as
bedroom/office, without the distractions of the bay vistas to ruin their work ethic; it's truly amazing!!

These are pretty large rooms and I rarely see anything OF this magnitude. The lovely LOUNGE has the most wonderful views through the four part bay window, where you can sit and indulge in a novel whilst taking in the views across Morecambe Bay and beyond to the Lake District. This really is a beautifully proportioned room with lots of choice for any individual buyer's layout.

In fact the current owners were able to bring some of their large furniture from a four bedroom detached home, avoiding the normal requirement to buy a new suite.

The bathroom has a large, fully glazed shower, wash basin with modern illuminated mirror and glass shelf, high level (bowl) toilet, heated towel rail and, to the joy of the well travelled, young and old, a proper bidet!

Finally, if you are a real cook and entertainer and love the 'impossible' idea of a FARMHOUSE SIZED KITCHEN in a seaside apartment, be prepared to be shocked! You can see just how big the kitchen is from the photographs and the extent of the storage units. This really is the icing on the cake; a huge space, wonderfully fitted out with the best equipment and exceptional storage, as described below.

A high level Miele electric twin oven, the grill is integrated into the top oven and there is a large fan oven below. Beneath, there is a plate warmer drawer and below that a pan storage drawer. A 5 ring AEG gas hob, three large storage drawers below and a wide overhead extractor. The Ariston gas boiler is located in one of the high level storage cupboards and there is a dedicated space in the storage units for a washing machine. A stainless steel, twin sink (window above) with a full run of high quality units either side, high and low level, with attractive laminated work tops, plus further wall cupboards for China or glass.

A superb Miele dishwasher with a standard fridge and matching freezer below the worktop.

The location has attractions for both local and holiday home buyers, not the least being the position on Morecambe's promenade, just 50m from the beach!

National and Local: Many fabulous and practical destinations at one's fingertips!

40 minute drive North to Kendall on the edge of the magical Lake District National Park.
60 minutes drive East to Settle on the edge of the lovely Yorkshire Dales National Park.
15 minute drive to Heysham docks and the ferries to The Isle of Man and N&S Ireland.
