  • Three Bedrooms
  • Generously proportioned rear garden
  • Single detached garage
  • Quiet and peaceful residential neighbourhood

An ideal bungalow when it comes to time to downsize and you’re looking for less space and work – it’s been extended at the rear and the loft has been converted into useable space. Single level living is of course possible with the neatly decorated ground floor offering an entrance vestibule, inner hall, sitting room with a lovely splayed bay window and gas fire, attractively fitted modern dining kitchen with integral hob, extractor fan and oven as well as plenty of storage space and a breakfast bar. There are two bedrooms both of which have fitted furniture and a three piece wet room for ease of access. Also on the ground floor is a cloakroom (with a two piece suite) and a very useful rear utility with space for a condenser tumble drier, coats and boots. From here there’s a door out to the back garden. Rising to the first floor the accommodation offers great flexibility. The large landing is lovely and bright thanks to a Velux skylight and it would make the ideal spot for a desk or sewing table where good light is needed. A second room is fitted to four sides with storage cupboards and would be great for hobbies or as an occasional bedroom space. There are PVC windows and external doors.

The overall plot is generous but should prove easy to maintain as all surfaces have been chosen to keep work to a minimum and enable full enjoyment. The front garden has an artificial grass lawn with planted borders and wrought iron railings, matching gates open to a block paved driveway in front of the single detached garage with an electric up and over door, power and light. The paving continues round the side of the garage and bungalow and is gated for security and pets. Outside light and tap for convenience. The rear garden is generously proportioned, it has been paved and has well stocked planted borders for seasonal interest and colour. The rear elevation of the property faces south east and has a charming summer house and practical shed. With the majority of neighbouring properties also being bungalows it’s private as it’s not particularly overlooked.

Apart from offering a quiet and peaceful residential neighbourhood, the beauty of Hest Bank Road is the accessibility; from here it’s a level walk into the centre of Bare which offers a selection of local amenities and shops along the attractive Princes Crescent as well as places for a drink or bite to eat with a number of pubs, bars and cafes. There are walks straight from the door, including public footpath to the canal and Hest Bank, the delightful promenade and beach at Morecambe and Happy Mount Park, a traditional park loved by children and adults alike.

The train station in Bare offers regular connections to Morecambe and Lancaster; in Lancaster the station is on the main west coast line which opens up the entire rail network for you. Hest Bank Road is also highly accessible for the roads with the Bay Gateway allowing handy access to the M6 motorway; J34 is around 4.5 miles away (whether heading north or south) and it’s under 4 miles into Lancaster city centre where you’ll find a wide range of services, excellent shopping, cinemas and theatres. Between Morecambe and Lancaster there is a comprehensive selection of supermarkets and there’s a good bus service too - it would be easy to live here car free. If you are jetting off then the airports at Manchester and Liverpool are 68 and 73 miles respectively.
