London - The ideal age to downsize to a smaller house is 64, a survey has found.
Half of over-60s questioned said they struggle to maintain their current home, while a third find it hard to keep on top of their garden.
One in five said their home feels empty, with nearly a third reporting they have rooms they rarely use.
About 70 percent of the 1 000 respondents said they wanted to move while they are still young enough to enjoy their new surroundings.
Meanwhile a third said they planned to relocate to a much smaller house and wanted to move nearer to amenities such as doctors and hospitals.
