“I chose a top floor apartment specifically as I knew it would have better views and lots of natural light…”
“I’d never heard about the area before I bought the apartment. I had friends that lived here and they all said the location is perfect as it’s only 15 minutes drive to Central Milton Keynes but you feel like you are out in the country. So it really is the best of both worlds. After a few walks around the development and the beautiful lakes I decided it was for me!”
This modern top floor apartment is in a block of only 6 and is the ideal first time buy or investment.
As you enter, the long Amtico-laid hallway draws you in to the semi open-plan kitchen and living area. “My favourite feature is the kitchen. There’s so much worktop space and so many cupboards that we never run out of space to store things!” She isn’t kidding! To be precise there are 16 cupboards and 4 drawers alongside the integrated dishwasher and washing machine. Due to its horseshoe shape design, there is an additional wall which separates the kitchen from the living space. “The wall makes the kitchen feel like a separate room rather than having one big open-plan space”.
The living area itself is plenty big enough for a sofa and additional furniture. The current owners utilise the space to fit a desk, although this could easily be replaced with a dining table and chairs. There is a Juliet balcony which allows plenty of light to flood in and make the space feel larger.
The master bedroom is a comfortable size and also benefits from lots of natural light due to its own Juliet balcony. There is an ensuite meaning no fighting over the shower first thing in the morning! The family bathroom is opposite the master bedroom which the owners tastefully tiled with white tiles and kept the decor neutral to create a clean space.
The second bedroom can fit a double bed, and the current owners utilise the large storage cupboard in the hallway as a walk-in wardrobe. Luckily there is a second storage cupboard in the hallway if you wanted to do the same and use the larger cupboard as a wardrobe.
“I like to go running around the development as there is lots of nature. There are also other keen runners which is good for meeting people in the community and learning new routes. We also love having Costa a short walk away, as we often go for a walk around the lake and use it as a pitstop!”
This wonderful apartment has allocated parking as well as communal parking, and also benefits from a lockable bike store.
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.
