My wife and I live in a 3 bedroom semi-detached house and have made an offer on a bungalow, after viewing several. I was diagnosed with Parkinsons just over 12 months ago and am still fully mobile. Our motivation is to get a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and front door on the same level- preparing for a future where I expect to be less mobile. "Cons" are bungalows locally are much more expensive than semi-detached houses, many are in a bad state of repair and too small to fit our furniture etc. Also, for the particular property we have offered on, we would have to spend money to make the long, gravel driveway wheelchair friendly.
Does anyone have experience in making the decision to move from a 2-story house to a bungalow? With hindsight what was good and what was not-so-good about the decision to move (or not move)? I would value any experience or opinion!
