Monkswood Avenue is situated in the highly sought after Bare area. It is a cul de sac, purpose built (circa 1988) retirement complex which is managed on the residents behalf by Anchor Housing and residents must be over 55 years. There is an estate manager on hand who can deal with any issues day to day and who is in charge of on site maintenance.
Situated within the Bare area demand can be high for these modern bungalows. Bare Village has a good variety of local shops and amenities on hand. You can enjoy sea side walks along the promenade and see Morecambe's famous sun sets across the Bay. Not too far away there is Happy Mount Park which is a public park and is a great place for families to visit in the summer months (if you need to entertain grand children!) and there is also a cafe there for you to sit and relax whilst the kids play. Regular busses run into Morecambe town centre or through into Lancaster City centre. Bare also has it's own train station which runs into both Lancaster and Morecambe.
What we like...
We were very impressed that this home has been recently decorated throughout and has been so well presented throughout. The brand new kitchen has been fitted by Howdens and offers plenty of storage.
A little about the home
This over 55's bungalow is simply beautiful. The owners have recently decorated throughout so you can move straight in and put your feet up. Just off the hallway on your right hand side is where you will find the living room. This space looks out over the front and there is a modern fire to the centre of the room.
The kitchen has just been installed and there are two bedrooms along with a three piece shower room which has a real modern feel. Externally there are well maintained communal gardens where you can sit and relax and parking is available if you have a car.
The living accommodation
As you step inside this lovely home you will firstly find yourself in the hallway which is the perfect space to hang up your coats and store your shoes before you step through to the main living room.
Once you are in the lounge you will feel right at home. This cosy living area looks out over the front of the home onto the greenery outside. There is plenty of space for the furniture you would require and the room has a contemporary wall mounted electric fire to the centre of the room to offer a warming glow during the evenings and the lights to either side can be changed via the remote control.
Buyers will no doubt be impressed with the recently installed kitchen by Howdens. The room offers plenty of built in storage for all your bits and pieces and there is ample work space for those who love to cook. A large built in cupboard offers power and is where the current owners store their fridge/freezer. A double electric oven is built in and along with a gas hob above complete with extractor fan. Space is available for the other white goods you will require and the boiler is concealed behind a wall mounted cupboard. Access to the outside space can also be gained from here.
Bedrooms and bathroom
The master bedroom is to the rear of the home and has a pleasing aspect looking out to the well maintained garden areas and mature trees beyond. There is space to place in your own double bed and if you need storage there is plenty on offer thanks to the built in wardrobes.
The second bedroom is to the front of the home and the current owners actually use this as a dining room which makes it a versatile space. This room would be ideal for the grandchildren to stay when they visit. Finally inside you will discover a well appointed three piece shower room which has been fitted with a contemporary three piece suite. The walk in shower cubicle offers a power shower and there is a built in storage cupboard to hide away your towels and bedding etc.
