Why buy this home?

Being in a cul-de-sac of just eight houses, this house has a garage and off-road parking for two cars.

A central entrance hall means the downstairs is split in half, maximising space. Immediately to the left as you walk through the door is a cloakroom which has been refitted and also houses the new boiler. A clever hanging area for coats has been installed on the dividing wall between the kitchen/diner and living room so you can start unwinding as soon as you get home.

In the kitchen/diner, the space under the stairs has had custom storage fitted, creating a useful pantry. The dining area is large enough for a six-seater table as shown by the current owners, however for larger functions the conservatory could be used as a formal dining room. The conservatory has heating so it can be used all year round, and its size, shape and amount of natural light mean that it can be utilised for a multitude of purposes. There is rear access to the garage from here and also sliding doors to the rear garden which is private thanks to the mature trees and hedges in surrounding neighbours' gardens.

The living room is a welcoming space and the perfect place to relax in the evening. The current owners have created a statement chimney breast which is clad with slate, and sit proudly in the middle of the room. On the opposite wall is a feature oak staircase which leads to the first floor.

Both the master bedroom and second bedroom have fitted wardrobes and are a similar size. The third bedroom is a single which is currently being used as a home office - poignant in today's world. The family bathroom is fully tiled and has the essentials - an overhead shower, glass shower screen and window, as well as luxuries like a heated towel rail and shaving point.

Parking is provided in the form of off road parking for two cars as well as a garage which has light and power.

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.
