Why buy this home?

Homes which are understated from the outside, yet hold surprise after surprise inside, have a certain charm about them, and this home is no different.

Accessed through secure electric gates, this section of Scotts Close is an exclusive community of just four homes arranged around a central courtyard. Occupying a corner plot, this home has side-by-side parking for two cars in front of the double garage, but also owns another section of the courtyard which could comfortably fit two more cars if the planters are removed.

Due to the size of the home, the current owners are cleverly using the original study off the hallway as a boot room to ensure the entrance is clear of coats and shoes. To the right is a generous living room which has a feature open fire with traditional cast iron surround. The wide bay window offers a defined area of additional seating which would be ideal as a reading area due to the natural light. The rest of the living room is large enough for bulky furniture, ensuring the entire family can use this space on those cosy movie nights. French doors open up onto a section of the patio.

The impressive open-plan family space has been created by the original dining room and kitchen/diner being combined into one room. The L-shaped design of this room lends itself to variations on how this room can be used - whether you are looking for a dining space to fit a grand 18-seater dining table or want to have a more casual family snug like the current owners have, this space is sure to be suitable for all family set-ups.

The new kitchen is now found in the double storey extension and is semi-open to this large space. A feature island with seating for three acts as a natural separation between the two spaces. The horseshoe shape of the kitchen offers privacy for the chef as well as vital storage and worktops space needed for a home of this size. All of the essentials have been factored in when this kitchen was designed with space for an American-style fridge/freezer and wine fridge, as well as there being an integrated dishwasher and eye-level Neff ovens. There is also a large gas hob which is rare in a village with no mains gas. A utility area offers additional storage and worktops space to dedicate to laundry as well as space for both a washing machine and tumble dryer. There is also an additional sink. There is internal access to the double garage as well as a door leading to a section of the garden which is perfect as a doggie entrance as it has plenty of external space for storage such as sheds.

Sliding doors also lead off the family area to the garden which has a large patio separated by steps leading to the raised lawn. These act as a natural separator creating two areas - one for alfresco dining and another that can be dedicated to children or even a hot tub. The raised lawn area is flat making it easy to maintain and ideal space for children to play. Being surrounded by mature trees makes this space a joy to be in and is a constant reminder of the semi-rural location Stoke Hammond offers.

A wraparound staircase leads to the first floor where you are greeted by an impressive galleried landing. On this floor you start to appreciate the views that this home's elevated position offers towards the Brickhills. The master suite is located over the double garage and is fitting of the grand nature of this home. Vaulted ceilings create a light and airy feeling and two double built-in wardrobes ensure there is plenty of room for a dressing area or private seating area. The ensuite has been refitted and is now fully tiled and has a walk-in double shower. Even the vanity unit feels luxurious with a marble top surrounding the sink. The second bedroom has its own four-piece ensuite with a bath and shower cubicle. This room would be perfect for an eldest child or even as a guest room if your eldest prefers their own private space on the top floor. The third bedroom is extremely comfortable and has a double built-in wardrobe meaning a king-size bed can fit.

Bedrooms four and five are located in the extension and are currently set-up as two childrens rooms. Both have a single built-in wardrobe and bedroom five has a unique feature in the form of a den where a child will no doubt demand to sleep. These rooms offer a lot of flexibility if you don't need copious amounts of bedrooms - they could be used as two separate home offices or they could easily be converted into one large room as the dividing walls are just stud. Next to these rooms is a shower room with a walk-in double shower - this could be turned into an ensuite if you were to combined bedrooms four and five, and the four-piece ensuite for bedroom two could be changed to the main bathroom should you wish. These are just further examples on how this home can easily be adapted to perfectly suit your family's individual needs. Lastly on this floor is the seventh bedroom which is a single.

A door on the landing leads to the top floor which has the sixth and eighth bedroom. This space could be a separate living space should you have an au pair or an older child who craves their own living space. Alternatively you could follow suit from the current owners and claim this space as further living space. Currently a gym, we have virtually furnished this bedroom to help you visualise the size of this space. A separate room could be a walk-in wardrobe if you use this top floor as a bedroom, or alternatively could be a snug or home office.

This home has to be viewed to be appreciated, and you'll be glad to hear the sellers have found a home they wish to purchase so a sale could progress before the cut-off for school applications.

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.
