Luckley View, Finchampstead Road
5 bedroom detached house for sale
Spacious, substantial and something quite special.
Luckley View occupies a generous plot with an impressive driveway and beautiful gardens. This exceptional family home offers over 3,500 sq ft of versatile living space and provides the perfect blend of town and country lifestyle.
With a wonderfully grand entrance porch and large hallway with underfloor heating, the reception is both homely and effortlessly welcoming.
This style extends through the design of a wide, gentle staircase, and then to the spacious landing with light from its lovely balcony and French doors.
Keeping the roomy feel, the practical cloakroom’s vestibule will hide away the family’s coats, boots and everyday clutter.
The five reception rooms work to provide flexible space for all occasions and life-stages.
Most importantly for today’s household is the ‘family hub’ - this comprises the kitchen, of course, together with the family and garden rooms. Unlike fully open-plan kitchens, this versatile layout allows the creation of zones for family activities or - for parties and entertaining - the space can flow as one large reception area.
The garden room itself is perfect for casual mealtimes or morning coffee with the papers. A corner wood-burning stove creates mood and atmosphere for relaxing evenings, and the roof is designed to keep the room warm in the winter, and freshly cool in the summer.
The family room, currently used as a snug, could become a breakfast room or younger kids’ playroom. With underfloor heating and adjoining the garden room, this space is both full of light and pleasantly cosy.
The well-proportioned lounge features a beautiful bay window which overlooks the garden, and enjoys additional light from the two side windows which flank the stone fireplace and gas fire.
The dining room features an attractive bay window and steals extra light from the two side windows. It’s ample enough in size for hosting dinner parties and large family Christmases too.
For those working from home, the study is perfectly-placed for quiet focus, but not too far from the kettle or front door for visitors and deliveries.
For serious cooks, and those with busy mealtimes, the kitchen features several welcome surprises! Fitted with an integrated fan oven and a separate 6-burner Stoves range cooker, there are no compromises when it comes to entertaining.
The work-surfaces are extra deep for serious food preparation, and the stainless steel sink was fitted especially to take large pots, pans and racks.
The kitchen is equipped with an integrated dishwasher, microwave, water softener, integrated fridge, and space for the additional fridge/freezer. It also has a chimney extractor hood, plenty of storage and a useful dresser unit.
The utility room, which sits between the kitchen and integral garage, has a range of fitted units, stainless steel sink and a washing machine. With a door leading to the side passage this is the ideal space for laundry days and returning dog-walkers.
Each of Luckley View’s bedrooms has an individual feel, and even the smallest room can accommodate a double bed and furniture.
The Master Suite, with its calm tones, has pleasant views over the garden, with plenty of light from its set of three leaded-light windows. A range of fitted wardrobes is cleverly designed to create a discreet dressing area. The tiled en-suite bathroom includes a large walk-in shower, illuminated mirrored wall cabinets, and a full-sized bath.
The Guest Suite has a range of fitted wardrobes, features a deep display window sill, and has an en-suite with large shower enclosure, frosted window, white fitted units and sanitaryware.
Bedrooms Three and Four, both of a double size, are given character with eaves windows and views across the lawn. They each have plenty of room for wardrobes and bedroom cabinets.
Bedroom Five, which overlooks the front, could make a perfect children’s room with space for bunk and guest beds. It has built-in wardrobes and plenty of additional eaves storage for games and toys.
The main family bathroom is fitted with a classic white suite, chrome telephone-style bath taps, plenty of built-in storage, and a modern shower enclosure. This room is an ideal size for younger and older children, and has part-tiling, a large window and recessed ceiling lights.
Luckley View is well-equipped to cope with numerous storage needs, with a tank-heated linen cupboard, cloakroom with vestibule, double garage, two garden sheds, eaves storage and a substantial loft.
The mature and secluded rear garden has been beautifully landscaped and maintained over the years. The lawn stretches to the well-stocked borders where there’s a good variety of established trees and timber panel fencing.
The front lawn is well-stocked and tended, and the driveway’s turning circle is a wonderful stone-edge flower bed.
Parking is not a problem with room for two cars in the garage, two cars in front, and several more along the driveway.

Wokingham’s Historic Market Town
Wokingham town is around a 20-25 minute walk away, with a few nearer grocery and wine stores including a Tesco Extra, Lidl, Majestic Wine Warehouse and M&S Food.
Wokingham town has benefitted from a recent regeneration, with a pedestrian-friendly experience in the newly-opened Peach Place. High-end retailers Waterstones, Waitrose, Oliver Bonas, Gail’s bakery, Maythers and Toni & Guy are firm favourites. Wokingham has a good choice of excellent coffee shops, some of the oldest pubs, tempting eateries, a butcher, tailor, boutiques, jewellers, farmers’ market, library, pharmacies and a modern medical centre. Health facilities include several gyms, a public pool (undergoing investment) and sports & racquet clubs at Cantley Park. For nightlife, the newly-completed Elms Field hosts an Everyman Boutique Cinema which complements the bowling alley and various excellent bars and restaurants. For theatre-lovers, there is the Wokingham Theatre in Cantley Park, and the Whitty Theatre just a five minute stroll from Luckley View.
