Why buy this home?

Fast becoming one of the most popular modern developments on which to live in Leighton Buzzard, Leestone Park is located off the prestigious Heath Road, with easy access to local schools and pubs, and just a short walk to Leighton Buzzard High Street. Wide roads and considerately designed homes give the feeling of space throughout the development meaning you don’t feel hemmed in like some modern developments. Rushmere Country Park is only a short drive away and is ideal for dog walking, plus you are on the right side of the town for quick access to the A5 if you need to get to Milton Keynes. The development itself has a Co-op shop for your daily essentials and a fish bar where you can get your takeaway for quiet nights in with the family.

The home is stylish, immaculate and at the start of a cul-de-sac meaning you don't have lots of traffic passing by.

The entrance hall, with its wood-effect vinyl flooring, welcomes you into the property. This flooring then continues throughout the downstairs accommodation.

A spacious living room that provides a lovely space in which to relax, catch up with family after a long day, or entertain friends. It is decorated with a neutral palette giving you the opportunity to add your own touches of colour, and the size of it allows you to arrange the furniture in a way that suits you.

At the rear of the property is the kitchen/diner which is simply stunning. It is fitted with green shaker style units (please note that these look grey in the pictures) which perfectly set off the white stone work surfaces and wood-effect flooring. An island has been added by the current owner which provides a place for informal meals, or for children to do their homework while parents prepare dinner. It also provides additional storage. Integral appliances include a fridge/freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, electric oven, and a five-ring gas hob. There is space in the dining area to fit a six-seater table and there is a storage cupboard for items such as an ironing board and cleaning appliances. French doors lead to the rear garden.

The W/C has traditional style tiling which the owner has added to create a bit of character in a contemporary house.

The rear garden is a good size by new build standards and is a private space in which to relax or allow children to play. The garden furniture is positioned on a patio where you can sit with a drink, catching the last of the sun on a summer’s evening or simply chill out waiting for the barbeque. The lawn is a blank canvas and there is also an area at the back of the garage where you can install a shed or a climbing frame. There is a power socket and a tap in the garden and a gate leads out to the driveway and garage.

Upstairs, two of the bedrooms are doubles and the other is a comfortable single. The main bedroom is tastefully decorated and has a mix of contemporary and classic finishes. The owner has added paneling around the bed, traditional style lighting and window shutters. There is space for a king-sized bed with bedside tables either side and there is the bonus of a fitted wardrobe. This bedroom is also served by an en-suite bathroom. The second bedroom is at the rear of the home and has more than enough space for all the bedroom furniture you would require. The single room would make a great nursery or study.

A four-piece family bathroom is spacious, finished to a high standard and serves the other two bedrooms.

The garage has power and lighting and there is potential to add extra storage in the eaves. The driveway has parking for at least two cars with additional visitor bays nearby.
