About this property

  • 32 Lucastes Road is a superbly presented detached house, situated in a sought after location and offering spacious accommodation which is ideal for modern family life. It originally dates from the 1950s and has classic half tile hung and brick elevations under a tiled roof; it was significantly extended in 2016 and the current owners have further updated the property by replacing all windows and the front door.

    The house is beautifully presented, with natural oak flooring in the hallway, sitting room and study, a soft neutral palette of colours to most rooms and quality fittings throughout.

    The accommodation extends to over 2,470 square feet in the main house, plus an additional detached studio/office in the garden and a games rooms which has been converted from garaging.

    The floorplans offer an excellent overview of the full layout; points of note include the sitting room, a peaceful space with an open fire and bay window to the front. Internal double doors open to the cinema room, a superb space for entertaining with full wiring for screen and sound, and bi-fold doors fitted with plantation shutters, that open to the terrace.

    The kitchen/dining room is a wonderful space, and very much the hub of this house. It is well-equipped with modern gloss grey cabinets, tiled floor with underfloor heating, central island with sink, range cooker, NEFF coffee maker and wall mounted oven, Miele wine fridge and space for a freestanding fridge/freezer. Full height glazing, bi-fold doors and roof lantern ensure the dining area is flooded with light; the lantern can be illuminated with LED lighting to create a stunning feature, the bi fold doors open to the terrace creating a wonderful space for entertaining with good flow between inside and outside.

    A study, a utility room and cloakroom complete the ground floor.

    The bedrooms are situated on the first floor, reached via a turned staircase with glass balustrade, with a light well in the ceiling and mirror fitted at the turn to ensure light floods the interior of the house. The principal bedroom has an en suite bathroom with modern fittings including freestanding bath and a pair of basins and built-in storage. There are four further bedrooms (one with en suite shower room) and a family bathroom.

    The property sits well back from the street, about a third of the way into its generous plot, which extends to 0.4 of an acre. Off street parking is provided by the driveway at the front of the house; the former garage has been converted to an excellent games room, which is insulated, has power and heating and offers enough space for a snooker table.

    The front garden is mainly laid to lawn, with a path leading to the house. Side access to the rear garden is secured by a bike storage shed to one side, and a gate and fencing to the other.

    The rear garden is a particularly suited to entertaining; it has been cleverly landscaped in several levels, offering spacious terrace close to the house, a further decked terrace which previously had planning permission to install a swimming pool, and the remainder of the garden being mainly laid to lawn with cherry trees and bulbs planted. Mid way down the garden is a detached studio/ home office with power connected; a further timber shed lies at the foot of the garden.

This house is superbly presented and offers great space for all the family - I really like the flow the bi-fold doors offer between the terrace and the house.
