Why buy this home.....This modern ground floor apartment has just been painted from top to bottom and is in walking distance to the local shops, costa coffee and the Turing Key pub.

To the left of the hallway is the master bedroom which is a great size and has enough room for a double or king-size bed as well as having enough space for draws or even a wardrobe without it feeling too "cosy" It also has views over the greenery outside. As there's no other buildings at the side of the property it is filled with lots of natural light. The second bedroom would be perfect for a child, office or guest room.

The bathroom is directly across from the second bedroom and has been freshly painted white and finished off in grey texture tiles giving it a premium feeling whilst being practical. There's a large bath and a powerful shower with a glass screen.

There's enough room for a suite or you could go with a more modern corner sofa whilst leaving enough space for a small dining table. The kitchen is at the back of the living room and has although its open plan the walls do come in a little making it feel slightly separate to the main living space. High gloss units and wood effect worktops finish the kitchen off perfectly. Integrated appliances consist of dishwasher, washing machine, fridge freezer and double oven with gas cooker top.

Parking is provided by one allocated space as well as having plenty of community 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 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 2019 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.
