Yes, this three double-bedroomed detached bungalow has it all! Even on the approach up the driveway you start to sense a feeling of space. There is a large landscaped front garden, low maintenance, and a wider and longer than average block paved driveway leading to the detached garage and the front door. Around the back there is a fantastic South facing garden that has been well maintained, complete with shed for him indoors! As you enter through the front door the hallway is spacious, as are all the rooms within the property. The owners were keen to keep energy costs down so it has cavity wall insulation, double glazed throughout and the full requirement for loft insulation. This property is Freehold.
As you will appreciate the home has been decorated to the tastes of the older generation. Yes, there is some work to do here, but this has been reflected in the lower asking price. Although there is work to do though, just let it be mentioned that this property has been very well cared for, is immaculately clean and has been maintained to a high standard, so there would be no hardship in living in this property whilst it was being brought up to date. The priority for most cooks would be the kitchen. It is a good sized room and well proportioned, ideal to be made into a kitchen diner. There may also be a requirement for the house to be re-wired, however it has been fitted with a new electricity meter in 2008. There are two bedrooms upstairs, one with a sink which means it may be quite easy to install an ensuite as the pipework for water is in place. Modern day living generally means neutrality in the decor, so again this is where the project lies.
So who would live in a house like this...as they say? Potentially it would suit a family or a couple who like space in their home, so upsizers or downsizers!
For families you are close to all the very good schools in the area as well as local bus routes for the older kids to get to school. For working parents you are approximately 10 minutes drive from the motorway network, or there is the train station for commuters in St Annes on Sea, a five to ten minute bike ride or car journey. The bungalow is very conveniently placed for the new flagship Booths store on Heyhouses Lane, handy to send the kids around the corner for the bread or milk! And no main roads to cross to get there either. The centres of Lytham and St Annes are both a short drive away, with all the attractions they offer such as cinema, shopping, restaurants of all tastes, swimming pools and gymnasiums, football and other sporting clubs, it's all within a three mile radius.
Elmhurst Road runs parallel with Heyhouses Lane, so you will find that cars will only drive down this street if they live there or are visiting - it is not somewhere you drive through on the way to somewhere else. So as such it is a very quiet street, and no parking issues at all as all the homes have their own driveways or garages. It is a very green street with all the lovely gardens, and it has remained untouched since it was built, still sporting those lovely flags rather than tarmac for pavements, making the street feel a lot classier.
This home includes:
4.25m x 4.08m (17.3 sqm) - 13' 11" x 13' 4" (186 sqft)
A well proportioned lounge with a lovely bay window and two side windows filling the room with natural light.
- Reception Room
3.37m x 4.11m (13.8 sqm) - 11' x 13' 5" (149 sqft)
A second good sized living room that leads through to the Conservatory, so lovely views of the garden from here too.
3.5m x 4.11m (14.3 sqm) - 11' 5" x 13' 5" (154 sqft)
The conservatory attracts the sun for most of the morning and afternoon, an ideal place to sit and admire the garden. The door opens out onto the patio and garden beyond.
- Kitchen Diner
3.76m x 4.2m (15.7 sqm) - 12' 4" x 13' 9" (169 sqft)
This is a good sized room with a lot of potential to mould it into your own living style. There is a door that leads through to a Utility Area.
- Utility Room
Utility area housing the washing machine.
Leading from the kitchen to the rear garden, with the Utility Cupboard just off. An ideal spot to grow tomatoes!! But also a good place for the kids to kick off their muddy boots before entering the house.
- Bedroom 1
3.94m x 3.78m (14.8 sqm) - 12' 11" x 12' 4" (160 sqft)
This double bedroom is downstairs and has a forward facing aspect. It has been furnished with fitted wardrobes. There is also a feature bay window.
- Bedroom 2
4.05m x 3.8m (15.4 sqm) - 13' 3" x 12' 5" (166 sqft)
This is another double bedroom with some fitted wardrobes, albeit a little dated. However, there is a sink in this room and there may be a possibility to create an ensuite as the water pipes are already in place. There is a door to eaves storage in this room - handy for camping or sports equipment, or whatever 'junk' you may need to store.
- Bedroom 3
4.12m x 3.17m (13 sqm) - 13' 6" x 10' 4" (140 sqft)
Another double bedroom, so no arguments with the kids about who has the best room hopefully! This room looks over the front garden and has a dormer-style window set into the roof space.
There is a standard sized detached garage to the rear of the property, see the garden photos. In addition to the up and over garage door there is a rear exit door, that can lead straight through into the shed behind.
A good sized shed, somewhere for him to avoid Coronation Street perhaps?
Please note, all dimensions are approximate / maximums and should not be relied upon for the purposes of floor coverings.

This is a lovely and much loved home, only ever had one owner since new, located in a very popular and quiet residential area. It needs bringing into the 21st Century but this refurbishment cost has been reflected within the price. It is a substantial size of bungalow with large gardens and a spacious driveway. Any improvements to this property would be adding value so an ideal home for someone looking to upsize to a larger home at a reduced initial cost. As mentioned this bungalow is definitely in the right location so if you are even remotely interested a viewing is essential - book online today!
