Why buy this home?
The Shenleys are some of Milton Keynes' most sought-after locations and it's easy to see why with Shenley Brook End offering close proximity to Milton Keynes Train Station, yet having of open green spaces thanks to the fact it is one of the original villages Milton Keynes was built from.
Being in a cul-de-sac means you'll have no concerns about children playing outside the front of the house as they'll be off the main road. You'll also notice that the house is set back meaning it offers a front garden and additional parking space next to the double length driveway - ideal for those leaving the house at different times of day.
This house feels like home as soon as you stop foot through the door. The current owners attest thi s to the spacious entrance hall which is wide meaning that you can greet guests properly. Not only that, but it's perfect if you have young children as it's easy to put on coats/shoes or even for a buggy. To the left of the entrance hall is the separate living room. A gas fire sits proud of place as a feature and three walls offer a sociable seating arrangement.
The kitchen/diner has recently been refitted with charcoal units and light worktops. A peninsula offers somewhere to sit for casual meals, whilst the dining area is ideal for more formal gatherings. Cleverly, the owners also had units and a worktop fitted at the end of the dining space meaning it can be used for additional storage space or as a workstation as the current owners have it set up. Integrated appliances include a dishwasher, gas hob and electric oven, and there is space for an American-style fridge/freezer in the utility room, as well as a washing machine. The boiler is housed in here too which was replaced in March '22. There are doors off both the dining area and utility leading to the garden.
The garden is what makes this home easily stand out from others. Rarely do you see a plot this wide for this size of house and not only offers great entertaining space, but also means it has the potential to extend the house in future. Between the dining and utility room doors is a patio, with a further seating area available via decking at the back of the garden. There is also a solid base next to the decking ready for a summer house to be installed (or a hot tub!). A door leads to the garage providing convenient access from the garden, and there is further space behind the garage for a shed if necessary. The lawn continues to wrap around the house to the living room, offering space for different members of the family.
A wraparound staircase makes the landing a feature in itself. Immediately to the right is the family bathroom with overhead shower and all important window. Next to the bathroom is the master bedroom which has triple built-in wardrobes and its own ensuite - again with a window. The smallest fourth bedroom is next to the master making it ideal as a nursery or even as a home office. Both bedroom two and three are similar sizes and both have a single built-in wardrobe.
More about the location...
Shenley Brook End is a village, district and wider civil parish in the popular west side of Milton Keynes. Together with its neighbouring districts of Shenley Church End, Shenley Wood and Shenley Lodge, the districts are collectively known as "The Shenleys".
Today, the historic village is the core of the new district that bears its name.
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. The brook rises near the site of Snelshall Priory, flows through Furzton where it is joined by a tributary from Emerson Valley, then goes on to become the "tear-drop lakes" in Loughton and flows into the river Great Ouse at New Bradwell.
It has primary school, Long Meadow, and a secondary school, Shenley Brook End School.
