Why buy this home?

For a one-bedroom apartment, the living room offers several variations on furniture layout, and although open-plan, you could use a corner sofa to make it feel like its own space. Light is a common theme in the living room and kitchen, this is down to the double doors leading to the Juliet balcony with stunning views of Jubilee Lake.

The contemporary kitchen has been finished with white high gloss units and ash work surfaces which have been offset against a light vinyl flooring. There is plenty of room for a four-seater table and chairs without feeling too “cosy”. Integrated appliances consist of a washing machine, slim line dishwasher, and fan oven with gas cooker top.

Storage is usually at a premium in modern apartments, so you will be pleased to hear that there is a large cupboard where you can keep shoes, coats, and cleaning products.

The bedroom is light and airy due to a large window that has views over the lake. The room size is big enough for a double or king-size bed leaving enough room for wardrobes.

A well-proportioned bathroom completes this perfect starter home. Fully tiled around the bath with grey stone tiles, the glass shower screen also keeps the spray from the powerful overhead shower at bay!

Parking is allocated by one space however there is plenty of communal parking available.

More about the location.....

For a new development, Newton Leys is steeped in history. with some parts dating back as far as the Iron Age. However, it was more recently famous for brick-making from the late 19th Century, in the form of Newton Longville Brickworks. When the Brickworks closed in 1978, an old claypit was flooded to create Jubilee Lake, now more commonly known as Willow Lake, easily the jewel in Newton Leys' crown.

Newton Leys is a district that covers the southern tip of Bletchley and is split between the Borough of Milton Keynes and Aylesbury Vale. Conveniently located next to the A4146 and A5, it gives easy access to Milton Keynes, Leighton Buzzard and the M1. You have a choice of either Bletchley or Leighton Buzzard Train Stations which both offer services directly into London Euston.

Newton Leys Primary School opened in 2016 and accepts children from age 3 (nursery) to age 11 (Year 6). Many parents take advantage of the Grammar Schools in Aylesbury for Secondary education being only approximately 11 miles away.

In 2017 Newton Leys District Centre opened providing local conveniences such as a Costa, Chinese Takeaway, Fish and Chip Shop, Dry Cleaners, Hair Salon and a 8000 sq ft Asda. At the end of April 2019 the Turing Key pub opened its doors and has already cemented itself as the heart of the community. It is in good company as there also numerous village pubs within a few miles such as The Three Locks at Stoke Hammond, The Crooked Billet at Newton Longville and The Betsey Wynne at Swanbourne.
