Lucy's Lodge, named after the Beetles song 'Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds' is a real diamond. A modern-day, versatile home, well-positioned down a single-track lane in the centre of the popular village of Gilmorton. The property has been beautifully designed by Walrus Properties to give the impression of a period barn conversion with its exposed bricks and reclaimed beams, yet offering the more modern facilities of a property only 22 years old.
The property is built of mellow red brick under a slate roof and has a separate detached double garage with a versatile room above.
The front door leads through to an impressive entrance hall used by the current owners as a dining room, and with views up to the galleried landing of the hayloft master suite. The hallway has a lovely solid wooden floor and provides access to all ground floor rooms, where most of the accommodation can be located.
Directly behind the hall lies the kitchen with its replica quarry tile floor, solid wood, country style units, Rangemaster cooker, integrated appliances, and Belfast sink. There's also space for a small breakfast table and double folding doors to close it off from the hallway. Off to the left we enter the spacious, light and airy sitting room with working fire, slate surround, exposed beam, vaulted ceiling, and patio doors to the garden.
The utility can also be located to the left and comes well-appointed with a range of solid wood units and Belfast sink. There is also a door to another section of the garden.
At the end of this hallway is Bedroom two, abundant in size, with lots of natural light and an en suite bathroom to include both a bath, separate shower cubicle and Amtico flooring. Heading off to the right of the house is Bedroom three, a good size double or alternative dining room with a secret loft room above, ideal for a teenager den, bedroom or simply just for additional storage. Access to the secret eaves room is by way of fixed solid wooden ladder. Also located to the right is Bedroom four, currently set out as a home office but suitable as a single bedroom and the family bathroom with Amtico flooring, tongue and groove panelling and bath with shower attachment.
On the first floor is the hayloft master suite, a particular focal point for the home. Full of character with its reclaimed hay rack, exposed bricks, beams and vaulted ceiling. The suite compromises of relaxing, sleeping, dressing area, and en suite bathroom.
To the front is a gravel driveway leading to the detached double garage and parking. There are also two lawned areas, a mature, well pruned hedge and gate out to Church Drive.
The garden to the rear wraps around on three sides, to include patio area, lawn, gravelled sections, water feature and a space ideal for a vegetable plot.
The detached double garage, with electric up and over doors provides an ample space for two cars or all your storage needs. The upstairs has been professionally converted into an ideal space for a music room, home office or teenager den and has a side personnel door for ease of access.
