About this property

  • 33 Luard Road is a superbly situated, detached property constructed of rough cast rendered and red brick elevations with timber double glazed windows beneath a clay tiled roof.

    The property extends to approximately 2,857 sq ft and offers excellent family accommodation laid out over three floors.

    The property is accessed via a wide gravelled in-out driveway which provides ample parking. The reception hallway has inlaid oak flooring. To the left is a spacious family room currently used as a dining room, (comfortably accommodating a table seating twelve diners) which has painted floorboards and a slimline Stovax wood burning stove with black granite hearth. This space ‘extends' into an informal ‘octagonal' sitting room to the rear which has three pairs of glazed double doors to access the garden and has full height vaulted ceilings which attract a great deal of natural light.

    Beyond is a dining area, again with glazed doors leading to a paved terrace with garden beyond. The ground floor accommodation has oak flooring and original painted floorboards throughout. The kitchen/breakfast room has a comprehensive range of cream coloured cabinetry which includes pull out larder, Mercury three oven cooking range with five burner gas hob and twin sink unit and is fitted with two freestanding dishwashers. There is a marble work surface which includes a breakfast bar to one end and space for wine/drinks fridge beneath if required.

    To the front of the property is a bay fronted study, again with painted floorboards, whilst to the rear is a large walk-in laundry/boot room with limestone, porcelain tiled floor and twin washers and a dryer, which also gives access to a spacious cloakroom fitted in period style sanitary-ware with a tiled floor.

    There are six/seven double bedrooms on the upper floors which include four/five bedrooms on the first floor. The main bedroom, situated to the rear has a wide bay window, wall-to-wall built-in wardrobes and an en suite bath and shower room comprising a corner bath and oversized shower cubicle. The two adjoining bedrooms have an en suite bathroom which could quite easily be used for younger siblings wanting to share, a guest suite or au pair, which could comprise bedroom and sitting areas. Of great interest are the two top floor bedrooms which are vaulted and dual aspect with Velux skylights, the top floor also has ample ‘wrap around' eaves storage.

    The rear garden is a particular feature of the property laid mostly to lawn and walled to the rear with Homerton College grounds beyond. There is a long box hedge to the right with deep well stocked shrub borders beyond and a number of fine trees including Robinia, Willow and apple. Mid way along the garden, to the west is a brick pillared area with concrete base which is a pleasant sun trap, lit by outside lighting at night for evening dining, as the majority of the garden is.

    A single garage is accessed via the driveway and has a personal door to the left hand side providing useful access.

    In all about 0.27 of an acre.
