As the former President, now retired, and CEO of The Robert Lucke Group, one would expect to see only the highest level of quality, luxury and attention to detail in the home of Robert Lucke. After touring the home firsthand, I can honestly say that Lucke’s impressive residence more than holds up to those expectations.
Brace yourselves as we take a look at the 14 most incredible features inside Bob Lucke’s custom ranch home.
1) Curb Appeal
The instant you come around the bend, you realize this is no ordinary home. A well manicured lawn leads up to the stunning contemporary ranch estate, tucked between two full size trees. It’s hard not to be impressed before even entering the luxurious custom home.
As you stroll up the winding path toward the front door, you begin to fully appreciate the perfect marriage between stone, brick and shake. If you’re lucky enough to drive by the home at night, you will notice an array of soffit and gable lighting that highlights each contour of the custom-designed elevation.
2) 4-Car Garage
As you were walking up, you probably already noticed the oversized 4-car garage with complete side entry. This 1200+ sq ft space features an upgraded epoxy floor coating, heat and air conditioning, built-in cabinetry and countertop, a tool storage area, insulated garage doors, laundry sink, TV and even a staircase to the lower level.
The entire area is finished off with painted walls, trim and chair rail – making it seem as though you never left the comfortable interior of the home.
3) HOMEARAMA® Quality
As you step into the elegant interior, every detail seems to bring to mind the luxury estates of Cincinnati’s premiere home show, HOMEARAMA®. The quality in features and upgrades that were included in this home’s architecture could certainly win an award or two in their own right.
Specifically, the quality in the extensive faux finishing, the amazing ceiling detail, and the elaborate trim work is truly second to none.
4) Granite Tops
Beautifully exotic granite tops seem to grace every flat surface of this elegant residence. The darker tones complement the flooring while the lighter tones pick up the raised panel cabinetry as well as the backsplash.
5) Beautiful Hardwoods
Gorgeously dark ebony oak hardwoods run throughout the entirety of Robert Lucke’s luxury estate.
6) Gourmet Kitchen
Whether you’re a five-star chef, or you tend to let your microwave handle the cooking, this stunning gourmet kitchen cannot help but become the focal point of the first floor. An oversized square island will seat 5 or more, with plenty of leg room beneath the extended overhang.
Unique pendant lighting over the island, a beautiful hood that blends seamlessly into the solid-built cabinetry, and stainless steel appliances all come together to put this jaw-dropping kitchen over the top.
7) Open Floor Plan Design
The open feel of this floor plan (the Zinfandel, by Robert LuckeGroup) is so warm and welcoming that you can’t help but fall in love. A shared space between the kitchen, breakfast nook and great room give the plan a nice flow.
The home is somehow perfect for both socializing with guests or staying in for the night with your loved ones.
8) Craftsman Touches
Though mainly contemporary, Robert Lucke’s custom ranch shows off just enough craftsman touches to keep the home feeling warm and inviting.
There is plenty of stone and wood detail to make any craftsman fan feel right at home – not to mention three stained open beam trusses running along the vaulted great room ceiling.
9) Steam Shower
A very unique feature in even the most luxurious of homes, the steam shower is something for which we get more and more requests.
This steam shower is surrounded in floor-to-ceiling tile work and features an oversized rain shower head.
10) Finished Lower Level
As if the 3058 sq ft main floor wasn’t enough, this luxury home also boasts an expansive 1818 sq ft of finished lower level space.
Complete with a billiard room (pool table not included in sale of the home), home theater space, exercise room and two more bedrooms with a full jack-n-jill bathroom.
11) 3-Season Porch
As I took my own tour through Bob’s home, I was personally impressed with the 3-season rear porch/patio area.
This covered space stands on top-grade stamped concrete. The addition also includes retractable screens, a 42” gas fireplace with stone front, granite countertops, stained wood ceiling and a full sound system.
Perhaps the best part of this area is the amazing view of the 119 acre farm.
12) Scenic Views
I don’t know that any photos of this home will truly do it justice. Although the estate is located on Cox-Smith Road, mere minutes from shopping, dining and other entertainment, this property could not be more private or serene.
Situated on a spacious 2.242 acre lot, Robert Lucke’s fenced property is a perfect getaway backing up to a quiet field.
On a nice morning, you can hear the birds chirping as a neighbor’s horse grazes in the property behind you – truly a peaceful setting that reminds of Mason, Ohio’s small town past.
13) Geothermal Unit
The efficiency of this home has been greatly boosted with its inclusion of a geothermal unit. Geothermal units are not yet commonplace in the new homes of Cincinnati, but perhaps they should be.
If you are unfamiliar, “geothermal” is a central heating/cooling unit that draws from the Earth’s moderate ground temperatures in order to increase efficiency in adjusting the temperature of your home. They are certainly an expense up front, but they’re known to save you up to 80% on your current heating and cooling costs, according to Climatemaster.com.
14) Kings School District
This isn’t exactly a feature of the home, but it is worth mentioning. Robert Lucke’s luxury home is located in the city of Mason, although it is considered to be in the Kings School District.
Kings High School earned a gold medal in 2016 in the National Rankings, and has also been ranked #15 amongst all Ohio schools.
If you’re looking for a home in a great school district, you’re in the right place!
Robert Lucke’s personal home is now for sale and listed at $1,095,000.
