About this property

  • Situated in a leafy no-though road in this sought-after area of Haywards Heath, 34 Lucastes Road is a detached home believed to date from the turn of the last century. The house's charming cottage-style façade belies nearly 1,800 square feet of accommodation over two floors. On the ground floor there are two reception rooms lying off a welcoming tiled entrance hall, including a triple-aspect sitting room with fireplace and sliding doors opening to the terrace. The kitchen is fitted with a range of limed wood units and display cupboards with tiled worktops and space for a small breakfast table; a cloakroom and a study with good fitted storage complete the ground floor.

    The first floor accommodation comprises four well-proportioned bedrooms, all with wash basins and fitted or built-in storage cupboards, served by a family bathroom.

    The house has a generous front garden and is well set back from the road, with a long driveway leading to a detached garage lying to the side of the house. The mature rear garden is of particular note, extending to over 200 feet and being well enclosed by hedging, trees and shrubs. A raised terrace adjoins the rear of the house, offering an ideal outdoor seating area for dining al fresco and with a lovely outlook. Steps descend to the garden, which slopes gently down away from the house and is arranged in two main sections: beyond the terrace is a formal lawn edged by rose and flower beds; a brick pathway leads down to the lower part of the garden where there is a large expanse of lawn with a raised pond, greenhouse, and dilapidated timber shed. In all, about 0.43 of an acre.
