About this property

  • Lycaena is a mid-century modern situated in an elevated position, with beautiful views of the Hambleden Valley and beyond. The property was designed in 1964 to the specific requirements of the current owners and is being offered to the market for the first time in over 56 years.

    The house has been designed to take advantage of not only the views but also the southerly facing aspect, which produces an abundance of natural light in the main living areas. It has been extended and continuously improved of up to date equipment and materials as they became available.

    Upon entering the property you walk through a pretty courtyard, with seating area and a small water feature. The entrance hall leads to an open-plan kitchen/dining room with breakfast bar, wall and base units and a separate dining area.

    Just off the kitchen is a study and an ideal home working space. The sitting room is spacious with a double aspect and is shaped by a butterfly roof with generous ceiling heights. All four double bedrooms are well-proportioned and have been designed with privacy in mind at the front of the home and are all triple glazed.

    Two bathrooms and a cloakroom provide enough flexibility for a family and an additional utility sits off the long entrance hall. The double garage has two separate storage areas, both with integral access to the main house and also has an inspection pit for any potential work needed on vehicles.

    The home sits on an approximate 0.26 acre plot with gardens to the front and rear. To the front Lycaena is approached via a wooden gate and has been manicured with borders, shrubs, hedging and a shingle driveway with ample off-street parking.

    To the rear the garden is predominately laid to lawn with a small patio area located directly off the kitchen/dining room. The garden is southerly facing and offers wonderful views of the Hambleden Valley.
