About this property

  • 19 Lucastes Road is a substantial and well-presented detached house, situated in a tucked away position at the end of a shared private drive, on one of the town's most popular and sought-after roads.

    The property was acquired by the current owners in 2007, and they undertook a programme of redecoration and reconfiguration, including restoring the beautiful block parquet flooring which runs throughout most of the ground floor, refitting the kitchen/breakfast room and enlarging the reception room doorways. Today, number 19 offers light and spacious accommodation, with largely neutral décor; it is ideally suited for family life, with plenty of reception space and good-sized bedrooms, and offers wonderful opportunity for its next owners to put their own stamp on.

    The scene is set by the large reception hall, around which the principal rooms are arranged. The triple aspect sitting room has a fireplace set with a woodburning stove and sliding doors to the rear terrace; across the hall is the dining room, which in turn leads to the study, as single storey extension to the front of the house. The kitchen is at the rear of the house and is well-equipped with a good range of wall-hung and under-counter units complemented by tiger eye granite surfaces. Most of the integrated appliances are Miele, including two ovens, a warming drawer, induction hob with extractor over and a wine fridge in the breakfast bar; there is a freestanding Sub Zero & Wolf fridge with freezer drawer, a Miele tumble dryer, and space for free-standing washing machine and dishwasher. The kitchen has a door to the paved side terrace. A cloakroom completes the ground floor; there is a door from the hall to the rear terrace.

    On the first floor are five bedrooms, all with built-in wardrobes. The principal bedroom has an en suite bathroom, and the remaining four bedrooms are served by a family bathroom. The floorplans give an excellent overview of the accommodation and should be referred to as a guide to the full layout.

    The property is approached via a shared private drive and is set back from the road behind number 21; to the front of the house a wide block paved driveway offers parking for several vehicles ahead of the house and the double garage. The garage is attached to the study by a gated archway, and has power and water connected; together with the study, this portion of the property offers excellent potential for conversion or extension (STPP).

    To the rear of the house is an elevated paved terrace, which extends to the side of the house and up beyond the garaging. The terrace has space for table and chairs, and a mature wisteria planted; there is a lovely outlook over the gardens, which are mainly laid to lawn with mature shrubs and trees planted at the borders. The rear of the garden is planted with established rhododendron and deciduous trees, giving a woodland feel. The plot extends in all to about 0.41 of an acre.
