"Originally we were looking at apartments because we found most two bedroom houses felt small... This place was on another level. We had to have it."

Why buy this home?
Perfectly designed for modern living, with both couples and sharers in mind, this quirky home is one of only 6 houses of this design in Newton Leys.
On the ground floor of this home is the spacious second bedroom. "Before we were parents we actually had this room set up as a second lounge. It meant that neither of us had to go out if the other had friends round, and my partner could play his console whilst I got to watch a film in peace!". This bedroom also has its own bathroom with overhead shower; ideal for guests.
Stairs laid with stylish light grey carpet lead you upstairs to the main living space. The L-shaped design is reminiscent of the open-plan living space in an apartment, and creates a natural area for a dining table. The entrance to this room was cleverly re-designed by the current owners. "We decided to move the door to make it feel larger and so that we could create a wall where we could put the TV. It meant that although open-plan, we now have an area where we can cuddle up in front of the sofa without being able to see any mess in the kitchen!". Luckily the integrated Zanussi appliances include a gas hob, electric oven, fridge/freezer and all important dishwasher so mess can be kept to a minimum! Hardwearing ash coloured Moduleo flooring also means any spills can be wiped clean easily. This flooring is also found in the main entrance hall so muddy footprints can be easily cleaned - another example of the thought that went into the design of this house.
Another flight of stairs leads to the top floor where the master suite is found. However, first of all you will find a utility cupboard on the landing where the washing machine is plumbed in, meaning the first floor living space is still useable when the washing machine is in use. The master bedroom has its own ensuite as well as a roof terrace, providing outside space for the summer months. "In the summer we have the door to the roof terrace open all the time. It keeps the room nice and cool, and there's no noise as we overlook the houses opposite."
Parking is provided by two allocated parking spaces and there is ample communal parking in Islay Court for visitors. The front courtyard has two brick-built storage cupboards, and there is plenty of space for a table and chairs should you wish.
"I think we will miss how light and bright the house is the most. It means it isn't claustrophobic and you never feel on top of each other!".
Although freehold, there is a serivce charge payable which goes towards the upkeep of the cimmunal carpark. This is currently only £30 per quarter however.
