"Sometimes I find myself staring out of my bedroom window at the lake....after all, the view was the reason we bought the house! Where else are you going to find that in Milton Keynes?"
Why buy this home?
Since the current owners bought this wonderful home they have lovingly refurbished it top to bottom, meaning a lucky family can take advantage of their hardwork and move straight in.
"We relocated from Gloucestershire for work and really struggled to find somewhere that felt like it was in the countryside as we were so accustomed to open space. Newton Leys was perfect as you feel rural but are so close to everything. And when we saw the outlook of this house we knew it was our next home".
Undoubtedly the star attraction of this home is the unobstructed views over 'Willow Lake', however in our opinion the kitchen/breakfast room comes a very close second! "We felt the space was underutilised so we changed the layout and added more storage". I think it's fair to say they've done a brilliant job on the bespoke design; stylish high gloss units finished off with oak worksurfaces. Even the sink is granite with a spray tap. Practicality was top of mind as well which is why a 5 ring gas hob and double electric oven were installed. "We purposely ensured the pan drawers were by the cooker and dishwasher so everything you need is close to hand".
Double doors lead out to the low maintenance rear garden which has side access to the parking area. The downstairs is completed by a useful WC, storage cupboard and the fourth bedroom which could be used as a study.
On the first floor is the living room which is big enough to fit two sofas. "We had a much bigger lounge in our previous house, but we love how cosy this room is. We spend most of our time downstairs so it's nice to have a snug room for when we want to watch TV or read a book". The family bathroom has an overhead shower with glass shower screen and is fully tiled around the bath. The third bedroom has stunning views over the lake and benefits from bespoke fitted wardrobes. "We were going to have this room as the lounge but it's so bright that you couldn't really see the TV. Plus, who wouldn't want to wake up to this view!".
On the top floor is the master bedroom with ensuite. Again, there are bespoke fitted wardrobes and even more spectacular views over the lake. The second bedroom is another large double and, yet again, have the same bespoke fitted wardrobes.
The property also has a garage and driveway for two cars as well as ample communal parking.
More about the location.....
For a new development, Newton Leys is steeped in history. with some parts dating back as far as the Iron Age. However, it was more recently famous for brick-making from the late 19th Century, in the form of Newton Longville Brickworks. When the Brickworks closed in 1978, an old claypit was flooded to create Jubilee Lake, now more commonly known as Willow Lake, easily the jewel in Newton Leys' crown.
Newton Leys is a district that covers the southern tip of Bletchley and is split between the Borough of Milton Keynes and Aylesbury Vale. Conveniently located next to the A4146 and A5, it gives easy access to Milton Keynes, Leighton Buzzard and the M1. You have a choice of either Bletchley or Leighton Buzzard Train Stations which both offer services directly into London Euston.
Newton Leys Primary School opened in 2016 and accepts children from age 3 (nursery) to age 11 (Year 6). Many parents take advantage of the Grammar Schools in Aylesbury for Secondary education being only approximately 11 miles away.
In 2017 Newton Leys District Centre opened providing local conveniences such as a Costa, Chinese Takeaway, Fish and Chip Shop, Dry Cleaners, Hair Salon and a 8000 sq ft Asda. At the end of April the Turing Key pub opened its doors and has already cemented itself as the heart of the community. It is in good company as there also numerous village pubs within a few miles such as The Three Locks at Stoke Hammond, The Crooked Billet at Newton Longville and The Betsey Wynne at Swanbourne.
