Matthias Court

Matthias Street, Morecambe, Lancashire, LA4 5YL. Retirement housing

Manager's description

“Matthias Court consists of 37 flats – all 1 bedroom.
24 of these are suitable for single people, and 13 are a little larger and suitable for couples.

The scheme is in a lovely, quiet area – with a sea view but set back a little off the beaten track. It is within a few yards of Bus Stops to all areas – Lancaster/ Preston/ Kendal and the Lake District etc. The local GP centre with a chemist is less than 10 minutes walk away. The scheme is less than a mile away from the main shopping centre and post office. Less than 5 minutes walk from the scheme are the Catholic Church and the Church of England. Other places of worship are not far away”
