"We wanted a family home, in a family area with a nice garden - with pretty lakeside walks, yet close to a mix of village & town life... amazingly, we found it!"

Why buy this home?
This pretty double-fronted traditional family home has been cleverly improved and lovingly looked after by the current owners, meaning a new family can simply move in.
Kerb appeal is very important and this detached home doesn't disappoint. The symmetrical design and well maintained front borders make arriving home even more of a joy. The external double plug sockets give an insight into those clever improvements that have been installed to make family life easier. They are ideal for a pressure washer and vacuum cleaner after a weekend adventuring in the car!
The central front door creates a welcoming entrance hall which is plenty big enough to hang coats and remove footwear. The black tiled floor, that runs through to the kitchen/diner, makes cleaning up wet and muddy footprints a breeze. The WC has a handy heated towel rail and there is a storage cupboard under the stairs. A control panel for the house alarm is sensibly next to the front, and there is a Hive thermostat that will be left for the new owners.
To the right hand side of the home is the living room which is accessed through double doors. Stretching from front to back, it provides ample space for a variety of different furniture layouts. French doors lead out to the patio area of the south-facing rear garden, which allow floods of light into the living room. There are also hidden HDMI points for the TV for those unsightly cables.
The real hub of this family home is the open-plan kitchen/diner and utility. Essential for modern day living, it is an area large enough to fit the whole family. "We've had lots of great fun days & nights cooking & entertaining in kitchen & garden areas. We're lucky to get so much sunlight in the South facing garden, which has been great for family BBQs & birthday parties". Next to the fridge/freezer is a useful pantry cupboard, which could also be removed if you wished to install an American-style fridge/freezer. A utility room is a must in a family home, and this one has space for a washing machine or tumble dryer as well as further access to the rear garden.
The garden itself is low maintenance, yet still functionable for a young family. Two patio areas make the most of the morning and evening sun, whilst the fruit trees and vegetable beds are ideal for anyone green fingered! A water tap and water butt make looking after the greenery a breeze. Children definitely haven't been forgotten about as there is a large sand pit and further external power sockets. As the garden wraps behind the single garage, the shed is hidden which creates more useable space. The garage has power and light supplied by its own fuse box, and also has an electric car charging point. The driveway comfortably fits two cars and there is also ample communal parking available.
"We love the sweeping staircase and the flow to the bedrooms. It makes the house feel really connected, whilst everyone has their own space". Lighting on landings is important to the 'feel' of a home and this one doesn't disappoint thanks to the galleried bannister. Not only does this create the illusion of more space but also makes taking furniture upstairs much easier. Access to the boarded loft (which has a built-in ladder) is from the landing, which also has a large airing cupboard with pressurised water system to ensure no one suffers from a limp shower during the morning rush!
The master bedroom's square shape makes placement of furniture much easier and being over 11 feet wide means a king-size bed fits comfortably. It has its own ensuite with double shower cubicle, heated towel rail and all-important window.
Bedroom two and three are both doubles with the former having an alcove for a double wardrobe. Bedroom four also has an alcove making it a useable single bedroom. Its position next to the master bedroom makes it perfectly placed to be used as a nursery or as a home office, like the current owners do.
A family bathroom serves these three bedrooms which has an overhead shower and is fully tiled around the bathroom. Again, there is a heated towel rail and window to ensure no build-up of damp.
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 and Birmingham.
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.
