Accommodation

The programme of works included a ground floor extension, loft room upgrade to an occasional second bedroom, new wiring and plumbing and a new combi gas fired Baxi central heating boiler. PVC double glazing has been installed (white frames on the interior, dark grey externally) as well as PVC rainwater goods, soffit (with subtle sunken lighting) and fascia boards.

Within the sociable dining kitchen new contemporary fitted cabinets were installed with pale sage green doors and chrome handles along with integral appliances (NEFF double oven and grill, four plate electric hob, circulator fan and light and a BEKO dishwasher). In the bathroom a stylish suite of freestanding slipper bath with shower over, wash basin and WC was fitted.

Internally, there are all new floor coverings and the property has been decorated from top to bottom; the pale colour scheme is easy to live with being finished with crisp white woodwork and oak veneer doors having chrome handles for a polished look. A streamlined inset living flame gas fire in the sitting room provides an attractive focal point as is the square bay window. In the dining kitchen and ground floor bedroom French windows have been installed and open to the garden. In the hallway there is great storage and display space under the stairs as well as plumbing for a washing machine.

Externally the elevations were re-pebble dashed and the water mains supply pipe and drains replaced. A major but incredibly worthwhile project was landscaping the garden. To the front a central path leads to the front door and either side is block paved and would accommodate two or three cars. The paths round both sides of the bungalow are gated for privacy and security. The main garden sits to the west and is enclosed, private and sheltered therefore great for all the family and for dogs too. With a central lawn there are block paved edging stones and beyond that porcelain tiled paving. French windows open into the kitchen with ramp access. The raised deck area is a great feature with a pergola above; it provides a relaxed seating area and being east facing attracts the morning sun. Nestling in the crook between the kitchen and the bedroom extension, there is a seating area perfect for your garden table and chairs. Incredibly private, it enjoys the afternoon sun and has proved lovely for lunches in the garden in the warmer months.

Around the back of the bungalow is a ‘working area’, tucked away you’ll find a useful metal shed and space for your bins and general storage. There’s also a productive damson tree here! Around the bungalow are outside lights some of which are sensors and there is an external tap with hot and cold feeds.

The owners tell us that their favourite thing about living here is just how lovely and quiet it is as a neighbourhood. Purchased as a ‘forever home’ the owners have said they very much enjoyed the renovation (more or less a constant process over the last five years) but plans have changed and it is time to move on.

Location

Apart from offering a quiet and peaceful residential neighbourhood, the beauty of Taylor Grove is the ease of accessibility from a number of 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 easily reached.

The train station in Bare is a great asset and offers regular connections to Morecambe and Lancaster City Centre where the station is on the main West Coast line. It 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. If you are jetting off then the airports at Manchester and Liverpool are 65 and 73 miles respectively. The above journey distances are for approximate guidance only and have been sourced from the fastest route on the AA website from the property postcode.
