Why buy this home?

Offering a traditional downstairs layout and situated on a quiet road opposite a brook, and only a short walk to open countryside, this fantastic home isn't one to miss.

The heart of this home is the 24 foot (approx.) kitchen/breakfast room which runs from the front to the rear of the house. It feels extra bright and airy thanks to the white tiled floor and light worktops. Finished in a stylish grey shaker-style, the kitchen has ample storage as well integrated appliances to include a fridge/freezer and dishwasher which is less than a year old. A Rangemaster cooker sits pride of place in the middle of the kitchen with five gas hobs, two ovens and a grill.

The current owners have also opened up the understairs cupboard to create additional feature worktop space with room underneath which is ideal for dog beds or additional appliances such as a tumble dryer. Bespoke shoe storage has been created in the form of a pull out drawer. The dining area is large enough for a six-eight seater dining table and chairs, and there is an overhanging worktop which can host bar stools should you wish. Off the kitchen is a utility room with space for a washing machine and additional storage, as well as a WC.

The living room is a great size and has eight spotlights in the ceiling. Aluminium bi-fold doors have been fitted so that you can open the room up to the garden in the summer; perfect for entertaining. The south-east-facing garden is surprisingly private for a new build development and is low maintenance thanks to the artificial grass. There is side access to the front of the property via a path which has had new fencing installed with concrete posts.

On the first floor the large master bedroom is the same size as the living room below. It has ample space for wardrobes and a large bed whilst still feeling spacious. As the family bathroom is next door, an ensuite could easily be installed at little cost. The family bathroom has a deep bath and overhead shower with glass shower screen. There is also a window and tiled floor.

The two bedrooms on this floor are both doubles, with the fifth being opposite the master bedroom making it ideal as a nursery or home office. The fourth bedroom has an alcove for wardrobes as well as a large walk-in cupboard which could be used for further wardrobe space or for general storage.

The top floor has a bedroom with an ensuite which the current owners are using as a dressing room. It's perfect as a guest room or for an older child who wants their own space. The fourth bedroom opposite is also a double and has a homely feeling as you have the shape of the roof. This could be used as a living space for the top bedroom if five bedrooms aren't required. The true value in this home is that you can change its layout as your situation changes without the need to move homes.

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 Pavilion is now open and has daily classes such as Five Star Fitness, Badminton, Amy's Dance Academy, Zumba and Yoga. There is also a community hall and meeting rooms, making it ideal for parties and private functions.
