Situated on a good size plot with a relatively un-overlooked south-west facing garden, this detached family home is located in one of Milton Keynes' most sought after locations.
Why buy this home?
Being in a cul-de-sac of just four houses, this house has off-road parking for two cars to the front.
As you enter there is a room on your right hand side which the current owners are using as a storage room for coats and shoes. However, this could easily be used as a home office or utility room.
The main downstairs living space is open-plan, with a great sized kitchen with lots of storage. The off-white high gloss units are set against solid wood worktops to create a traditional feel. Appliances include an eye-level double oven and induction hob, and integrated dishwasher with space for an American style fridge/freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer. There is a clever overhanging worktop which not only creates a divide from the living space, but also doubles up as a breakfast bar.
The living and dining area is a practical shape meaning you can comfortably fit two sofas. There is even room for a dining table should you wish, or you could do the same as the current owners and utilise the conservatory for this. Double doors lead on to the rear garden which has side access on both sides of the house. There is a patio area for seating and lawn. Besides the useable space, the most impressive feature of the garden is how relatively private it is for a home in this location.
Upstairs are three double bedrooms. The master has its on ensuite whilst the second and third bedroom are served by the family bathroom which has an overhead shower and glass shower screen.
More about the location...
Shenley Church End is a village, district and civil parish in Milton Keynes. Together with its neighbouring parish, Shenley Brook End and the districts of Shenley Wood and Shenley Lodge, the districts are collectively known as "The Shenleys".
The distinction between the Brook End and the Church End happened in the 12th century when a new manor house was constructed in Shenley Brook End by the Mansell family. However, by 1426 the two manors were owned by the same person and the distinction between the two places was in name only.
Shenley Church End is also home to the Shenley Toot, a 13th-century motte and bailey (of which only the motte remains), which was originally a home of the Earl of Chester and is now a scheduled ancient monument.
Today, the historic village is the core of the new district that bears its name.
The district contains Denbigh School (a secondary comprehensive), Glastonbury Thorn First School, a nursery in the former village school, and Shenley Church End Pre-School (situated in the Shenley Leisure Centre).
The Leisure Centre beside the secondary school includes a sports hall, gym, squash courts and outdoor football/tennis courts, as well as the Sportsman's Rest bar.
The local retail centre opposite (south of) the school and Leisure Centre is a shopping area consisting of a fish and chip shop, a pharmacy, a cafe, a gym, a barber shop, a bike shop, a bookmaker, a charity shop, a Chinese restaurant, a pharmacy, a medical practice and a dental surgery.
In June 2014, Sainsbury's opened new supermarket opposite (east of) the Leisure Centre, on the site of the former Dolphin Splashdown swimming pool.
