Why buy this home?

Oozing kerb appeal, this wonderful home offers modern living within a traditional village setting. Phoebes Orchard is a no-through road and has 38 houses creating a closed community that organise street parties and bbqs. Being located in the heart of Stoke Hammond it means that the recently renovated village pub, The Dolphin, bus stops and the sports club are all within a 5 minute walk. Unlike other surrounding villages, Stoke Hammond also has a popular local shop which also has a Post Office meaning trips to Milton Keynes or Leighton Buzzard are a choice rather than a necessity.

The first thing to notice is the presence of a detached double garage offering side-by-side parking. Being detached it opens up the possibility of being converted into an annexe in future (sstp). A welcoming entrance hall awaits inside and offers plenty of space to meet and greet guests. To the left is the impressive living room with beautiful feature inglenook fireplace. The size and shape of the room mean sofas can be laid out in a sociable manner, and due to the separate dining room, the living room can be dedicated solely to socialising.

The dining room itself has plenty of room for an eight-seater dining table and also has double doors leading to a decked area of the rear garden, offering inside/outside dining. The kitchen is next to the dining room and is also accessed off the entrance hall. It has a traditional style kitchen with black granite worktops. It has space for an american-style fridge/freezer, range cooker and has an integrated dishwasher. There is space for a breakfast table, but if you prefer a more modern kitchen/dining layout, it can be easily opened up to the dining room to create a larger space. The current owners have planning permission granted for a rear extension as well as loft conversion meaning the house can grow with your family's changing needs. A utility room is off the kitchen meaning laundry and cleaning products can be kept out of sight. It's also the ideal place to clean any muddy footprints after a walk in one of the surrounding fields thanks to the door that leads to side path and subsequent gate to the driveway. Downstairs is completed by a WC and a study so that all five bedrooms upstairs can be used as bedrooms.

The garden itself is mainly laid to lawn and easy to maintain. Tactful screening has been installed to hide the view of the oil tank, and there is also a convenience door to the double garage.

Upstairs has a generous landing which all bedrooms are accessed from. The master bedroom has its own ensuite which is fully tiled and has an all-important window. The second bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe which has the potential to be converted to a second ensuite as it has a further build-in cupboard that can be used as a wardrobe. Both bedroom three and four fit double beds, and although a double bed could fit in bedroom five, we believe it is better used as a generous single. These four bedrooms are served by the family bathroom which has an overhead shower, heated towel rail and, again, all-important window.

More about the location...

Stoke Hammond is a village and also a civil parish situated in the north of the unitary authority area of Buckinghamshire, England, about two and a half miles south of Fenny Stratford, Milton Keynes.

The A4146 used to pass through the village until the bypass opened on 14 September 2007.

The village is close to the West Coast Railway line, although there is no station in the village. The nearest stations are Bletchley and Leighton Buzzard.

The Grand Union Canal passes close by the village.

It is one of the 51 Thankful Villages which lost no men in the First World War, as first identified by the writer Arthur Mee in the 1930s.

It is within catchment to Cottesloe School in Wing, but a lot of parents take advantage of the three Aylesbury Grammar Schools.
