Dating from the late 1920s and retaining the charm & warmth of the era Luccombe House is ideally suited as a large family home, and has undergone a programme of improvement and modernisation during the current period of ownership. Thanks to the large bay windows and high ceilings the rooms are light and bright with a great feeling of space. There are a total of 6 double bedrooms, plus a 2 bedroom annexe with its own entrance, ideal for a dependant relative. The reception rooms are of generous proportions, and the recently updated kitchen/breakfast room has access to a large balcony. All the rooms (including the annexe) with a rear aspect benefit from the sea views over the leafy residential area to Lyme Bay and the Jurassic Coast beyond. ACCOMMODATION
An open storm porch leads from the front garden to the reception hall which gives access to all the reception rooms and from where the staircase rises to the floors above. The spacious and light kitchen/breakfast room has a range of white shaker style units above and below granite work surfaces with a peninsular breakfast bar and integrated dishwasher plus space for a washing machine. A smart Stoves range cooker makes cooking less of a chore, with extractor over. The other half of the room is designed as a breakfast family area with plenty of space for a dining table or more informal furniture. Sliding glazed doors give access to the large balcony that runs the width of the house, with plenty of space for alfresco dining, and allow views over the surrounding area and out to Lyme Bay and the Jurassic Coast. A door leads to the garage. The triple aspect sitting room runs the full length of the house with bay windows at either end, again allowing you to admire the wonderful views. A stone fire surround and mantelpiece houses a gas fire. The formal dining room overlooks the pretty front garden through the bay window; there is plenty of space for a grand dining table. Off the hall is the WC/cloakroom.
To the first floor, off the landing, are 4 double bedrooms, 2 with en-suite shower rooms and built in wardrobes, these two rooms also benefit from the sea views. The family bathroom has a shower, bath, WC, and basin, plus there is a separate WC on this level. The second floor has two further double bedrooms, both with vanity units.
The annexe is at the garden level with its own access from the garden which can be reached without going through the house, and would be perfect for a dependent relative or older children that want more independence. There are 2 bedrooms, sitting/dining room, kitchen and bathroom, with most rooms benefitting from the lovely outlook over the gardens to the sea beyond.GARDEN & GROUNDS
The gardens are a real feature of this property with the entire plot measuring just over a third of an acre. To the front is a tarmac drive leading from the pillared entrance with plenty of parking and leading to the large single garage. A pretty area of garden separates the front of the property from the drive. A wall to the front, trees and hedging give a good degree of privacy. The rear gardens are mostly laid to lawn with two areas separated by trees. The lower part of the garden is level and was at one time used as a tennis court. The sea views across the local area can also be enjoyed from the garden.SERVICES
