Located along a quiet residential street in Hest Bank Village, 7 Hatlex Drive offers a fantastic opportunity to acquire a versatile three bedroom bungalow set within a generous plot. The property was believed to have been built in the 1920's and has been in the same family since the 1950's, serving as a much cherished family home that has been well looked after and extended over the time. At present, this is a great option for those looking for a retirement home, being within walking distance to the village amenities, canal and Morecambe Bay and offering ground floor accommodation. However for families looking to create their forever home, the spacious ground floor of the bungalow could be further extended or dormer extensions added to create a fantastic family home; still retaining the large garden, private drive and detached single garage, subject to relevant planning consents. At present, whilst the property would benefit from modernisation, it offers a total of three reception spaces, three double bedrooms, two bathrooms and ample storage to include the part boarded loft.
Hest Bank is a family orientated village centred around the popular primary school, with an active community offering something for all ages. The village hall offers a range of activities and classes and also hosts the well regarded preschool. For children of secondary age, there are well connected bus routes to the local secondary schools, including those of Lancaster and Dallam School, at the village hall which is an easy walk from the property. The large green in the village offers a playground and tennis courts to enjoy and there is also a post office, village shop and selection of pubs. Access to both the M6 and Lancaster City Centre is easily accessible either along the A6 or the Bay Gateway which also provides easy access to Morecambe and Heysham, and only a 30 minute drive to Windermere; so you are really in a great location for commuting and exploring. A selection of further amenities including a doctors, pharmacy and supermarkets can be found in Bolton-Le-Sands and Carnforth, just a short drive away. You are also a gentle stroll from the Lancaster canal and Morecambe Bay for some fantastic walks and scenery.
Entrance Porch Entering into the porch with space for coats as well as a lovely seating area looking over the front garden, a nice spot to watch the sun go down in the evening.
Entrance Hall/ Dining Area A glazed door opens into the spacious entrance hall which opens out into what is presently utilised as a dining area, offering befitting proportions.
Lounge 15'11 x 14'9 ( 4.85 x 4.50 ) Located to the front of the property, this formal reception room is filled with natural light thanks to the dual aspect which includes a large square bay window. Views over the front garden can be enjoyed from the pretty window seats within the bay window. The room benefits from high ceilings and there is an open fire set within a decorative tiled surround, ideal for creating a cosy atmosphere in this otherwise bright and airy room.
Kitchen 7'0 x 6'11( 2.13 x 2.11 ) An inner hall leads to the kitchen, currently arranged across two rooms. Within the main kitchen there are a range of wood units and a Belling electric oven and grill with a ceramic hob. The sink enjoys a view over the large and immaculately kept rear garden. The adjoining back kitchen is connected via an open door way and offers a further range of built in storage, space for undercounter fridge and freezer and external access onto the rear patio and garden.
Snug 11'11 x 11'1( 3.62 x 3.37 ) Located to the end of the inner hall is a cosy reception space that would have once been utilised as a formal dining space. It enjoys views over the side, built in storage cupboards and shelving. Combining this space with the kitchen could create a beautiful dual aspect open plan kitchen and living area, subject to relevant planning consents.
Inner Hall A second inner hall leads to the bedrooms and bathrooms of the property, keeping the two sides of the house separate. It opens out at the end to provide external access to the rear garden.
Bedroom 1 13'11 x 13'1( 4.23 x 3.99 ) A well presented double bedroom offering a dual aspect, decorative fireplace, vanity sink unit and built in storage cupboards.

Bedroom 2 13'7 x 9'11( 4.14 x 3.01 ) Enjoying a view over the side of the property where there is a vibrant fuchsia, this is a further double bedroom that again benefits from built in storage.
Bedroom 3 15'5 x 11'9( 4.71 x 3.57 ) The final bedroom of the property is likely to be your principal bedroom as it boasts generous double proportions and a lovely view over the rear garden. There is again a built in storage cupboard.
Shower Room Comprising a shower cubicle with an electric Mira shower, WC, pedestal hand basin, heated towel radiator and even space and pluming for a washing machine.
Outside Hatlex Drive benefits from a deceptively large plot offering a private drive leading to the detached single garage, a tidy front garden that extends along the side of the property, with some beautiful roses and hydrangeas. It opens out on to the fantastic rear garden, offering a pristine lawn with a productive apple tree and a decorative seating area set under a spruce tree . There are a choice of borders for those with gardening interests and the boundary is enclosed with hedges and small trees for added privacy.
