Standing at the entrance to this well-regarded cul-de-sac in the heart of Bare on the north eastern fringes of the popular seaside resort of Morecambe, this detached house was built in the 1930s and still has a number of architectural features of the period. If offers well proportioned accommodation which has been partially modernised and offers the opportunity to undertake further work and also possibly extend as the surrounding gardens offer scope for extension (subject to planning).
Sheltered by an open porch, the front door leads into a vestibule, both the outer and inner door having the original leaded and coloured glass top lights. The entrance hall has a useful cloaks cupboard and the staircase’s balustrade has a period banister rail. Under the stairs is a cloakroom with a loo and wash basin. Facing west on the front elevation the sitting room and principal bedroom above both have a striking five sided bay window, there is a formal dining room to the rear, with a square bay window and offering the opportunity to knock through and have a larger reception room stretching from front to back. As well as formal dining there is also room to have a table and chairs in the kitchen which is fitted with a
modern range of oak fronted base and wall cabinets, four ring gas hob and electric oven (both Gorenje), space for an undercounter fridge with plumbing for both a washing machine and dishwasher.
Rising to the first floor and there are two double bedrooms and a third single room. The spacious bathroom has a bath, separate shower cubicle, wash basin, loo and chrome heated towel rail. A loft hatch on the landing has a pull-down wooden ladder, the roof space is boarded, has a light and a Velux skylight with integral blind. There is double glazing (either wooden or PVC framed) with internal secondary glazing and gas fired central heating as well as gas fires in both reception rooms and the two main bedrooms.
Apart from offering a quiet and peaceful residential neighbourhood, the beauty of Lodges Grove is the sheer accessibility from a number of different directions. From here it’s a level walk into Bare where you’ll find a host of local services and shops on the attractive Princes Crescent as well as a choice of pubs and cafes for a drink or bite to eat. If the idea of a daily stroll, run or cycle ride on Morecambe Promenade appeals then this is reached less than half a mile from Lodges Grove.

Lodges Grove is also highly accessible for the road network with the Bay Gateway allowing quick access to the M6 motorway; J34 is around 4 miles away, a little less into Lancaster city centre where you’ll find a wide range of services, excellent shopping, cinema and theatres.
