Located in the small village of Soulbury, this beautifully presented property is a short drive to the market town of Leighton Buzzard benefiting from a rail service to London Eustona in 30-minutes. It sits within the Aylesbury Grammar School catchment area and has great road links to Milton Keynes and the M1.
Soulbury itself is a quiet village in the heart of the countryside. For convenience items such as bread and milk, there is a Tesco Express that can be reached by car in five minutes. Every good village needs a pub and just up the road from the property you will find The Boot which has benefited from a recent refurbishment. If you enjoy the outdoors, then you will find fantastic walks and cycle rides to Wing in one direction and Stewkley and Stoke Hammond in the other. Liscombe Park, a leisure and health complex, is also in the village and has a gym, a swimming pool, and a health spa, in addition to nearby riding stables.
Being at the end of a row of four terraced houses gives this home an enviable plot with potential to extend to the rear, to the side and up into the loft (STPP). It is a home that is in wonderful condition throughout and has been loved by the current owners which is apparent in every part of it.
A path leads through the lawn to the front door, and here is where you will first begin to appreciate the size of the plot. The lawn could be paved to create parking for numerous vehicles and there is a gate that leads to an enclosed side garden, perfect for dog walkers to contain dogs after a walk in the nearby countryside.
The entrance hall is a great size leaving plenty of room for a console table or dresser. There is also additional space under the stairs for storage and to keep coats and shoes.
The living room gives off a cosy, calm feeling as soon as you enter it - exactly what you want from a home in a village. The focal point of the room is a log burning stove which is perfect to curl up in front of at the end of a cold winter’s day. There is storage built around the chimney breast where you can hide away items or even display books. The current owners have a three-seater sofa and two further two-seaters so there is more than enough space to catch up with family or entertain friends.
A beautifully renovated kitchen/diner is at the rear of the property, it is a lovely size and looks out over the impressive rear garden. The kitchen is fitted with white units, has plenty of marble effect work top space and has a mosaic style flooring providing the perfect mix of classic and contemporary. It has integral Neff appliances including a dishwasher, a double oven, and an induction hob, and there is a Quooker tap that provides both sparkling and boiling water. The dining area is spacious and somewhere that the current owners have comfortably seated ten people when hosting, making it perfect for large families or when having gatherings.
A generous utility area keeps the washing machine and tumble dryer out of the kitchen in order to maximise space. There are more storage units and work top space in here and it has a door that leads outside meaning muddy children or dogs don’t have to come into the main house straightaway! Off the utility area you will find a downstairs bathroom in addition to the shower room upstairs meaning there should never be too much of a wait to get ready in the morning.
The rear garden is amazing, measures over 100ft, and goes on forever. The size of it makes it a dream for a keen gardener or a family with children, and as it is so big you will never be short of sunny spots. The large patio is the perfect place for al fresco dining, to enjoy a drink with friends or to simply keep an eye on the children whilst they play. If you have had ambitions to grow your own produce, then this is your opportunity as the garden has three large, raised beds that you could stock with plenty of fruit and veg. At the back of the garden there is an area with a pond for wildlife to enjoy and there are apple trees and a damson plum tree. There is a cabin in this section of the garden which is insulated and has power. This could be used as an office, a games room, or somewhere to relax away from the main house.
Upstairs there are three good sized bedrooms and a shower room. The main bedroom is at the front of the home and has wonderful views over countryside. There is plenty of room for all the bedroom furniture you would need without it feeling cramped and it has the bonus of a fitted wardrobe. Looking out of the window of the second bedroom, you really get to appreciate the size of the garden. It is well-proportioned and has a fitted wardrobe. Often the third bedroom is a box room and although this one is a single bedroom, it is still a great size. The well-presented shower room is fully tiled and has a large walk-in shower. There is a vanity unit under the sink and a window provides natural ventilation.
