Why buy this home?

At over 1,700 sq.ft, this family home offers numerous receptions rooms and spacious bedrooms. With a primary school within walking distance and secondary school catchment to the Royal Latin Grammar School, it's sure to be a big hit with families.

Your attention is first drawn to the shingle driveway which can fit three cars. There is then a lovely cottage garden as you approach the front door which adds to the village setting. A spacious entrance hall awaits you as you enter, which is illuminated by two glass panels either side of the front door.

To the left is the living room which is square in shape meaning that various furniture layouts are possible. There is a feature fireplace with an external chimney breast meaning that a log burner with flue can be installed should you wish. Opposite the living room is the family room which offers a lot of flexibility. A space to keep children's toys out of sight, a snug or even a downstairs bedroom, this space can adapt as your family grows. Next to the family room is the home office which has space for storage and a side window allowing soft light to ease eye strain caused by your computer screen.

Also in the hallway is a WC, a recessed cloakroom area for your coats and access to the utility room which has lots of worktop space and a door to the outside, making it an ideal entrance after a dog walk or venture through the surrounding countryside. At the back of the house is the kitchen/diner. The kitchen space has granite worktops and lots of preparation space. There are eye-level ovens, a dishwasher and space for a freestanding fridge. The dining space can fit an 8 or 10 seater dining table and opens up to the garden via French doors.

The garden is south-west facing meaning it receives sun all afternoon. The patio area offers space for outside dining and wraps around the house, offering a further casual seating area. There is access to a shed which is built on to the house and doubles up as side access thanks to doors to both the garden and the front. A raised flat lawn area is easy to maintain and offers a space for children to play.

As you enter upstairs you are greeted by a galleried landing which is not only a stunning feature, but also helps make this space feel bright and airy. The master bedroom is at the front of the house and offers spectacular views over Whaddon Chase opposite, and even gives you the chance to admire the sunrise (if you're up early enough!). There is an ensuite with a shower cubicle and a walk-in wardrobe. The third bedroom is also at the front of the house so has the same views as the master. The second bedroom has the roof line in the ceiling, making it a standout feature without compromising on the ceiling height for wardrobes. There is a double built-in wardrobe already however. The fourth bedroom is big enough to fit a double bed as it also benefits from built-in wardrobes. The bathroom is an extremely impressive size and has both a bath and separate shower cubicle.

More about the location...

Whaddon is a village and also a civil parish within the unitary authority area of Buckinghamshire, England. It is situated just outside of Milton Keynes.

The village name is Anglo Saxon in origin, and means 'hill where wheat is grown'. The village is referred to several times in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle generally in the form of Hwætædun.

The village is at the centre of the ancient Whaddon Chase, the site for many centuries of royal hunting lands. Whaddon Chase is designated an area of 'Special Landscape Interest'.

Whaddon Church of England School is a mixed Church of England primary school. It is a voluntary controlled school, which takes children from the age of four through to the age of eight. The school has approximately 50 pupils.

Whaddon Hall, the village manor, was once home to the Selby family (also known as Selby-Lowndes), whose ancestor William Lowndes built the larger and grander Winslow Hall. Both mansions are still private houses. During the Second World War Whaddon Hall served as headquarters of Section VIII (Communications) of MI6, as an outpost of Bletchley Park.
