Why buy this home?
“Oh! I could definitely live here!”. These were the words Eileen said the second she walked through the door. And this was coming from someone who was determined never to move away from her friends in London! It’s easy to see why….
“Mum loved being able to sit in her living room and watch the world go by. She even installed an electric fire to make the evenings nice and cosy too”. For those who find relaxation in cooking, the large kitchen will not disappoint. You can tell it has been designed for keen chefs as it is lavished with cupboards and worksurface space, as well as having a peaceful view over the mature rear garden. An understairs storage cupboard utilised as a larder is a welcomed benefit.
“There were three things that made it all more perfect; the conservatory, the utility and the WC”.
Currently being used as a dining room, the conservatory offers great flexibility. The glass roof allows light to flood in, but built-in blinds provide sanctuary from the midday sun. An electric heater also means the conservatory can be used all year round. French doors lead to the good sized garden which is bordered by mature bushes and trees. Being on a small no-through road of just 8 houses means very little noise when you are enjoying the garden. The patio area lies in the shadow of a tall tree, creating a shaded space perfect for alfresco dining. There is another paved area to the side of the house which is home to a shed and provides access to the driveway. This bonus space gives potential for a new owner to extend in the future (stpp).
The utility room has space for a washing machine and small tumble dryer, cleverly keeping any noise away from the main living area. The partly converted garage provides a useful extra reception room which could be used as a dining room, family room, study, or even fifth bedroom when the extended family come to visit! A WC completes the impressive downstairs living space of this family home.
Upstairs are three double bedrooms with ensuite to master, a single bedroom and family bathroom. Three of the bedrooms are south-east facing, meaning they capture the morning sun, yet are nice and cool in the evening. These bedrooms also have enviable views over the green spaces in front of the house, which also provides a welcome barrier from any minimal road noise.
More about the location…..
Being over 20 years old, Kents Hill is a more established estate in south-east Milton Keynes meaning houses are more widely spaced and there are lots of green spaces. In fact 12.3% of the MK7 6 postcode is public green spaces compared to a regional average of 2.3%. A perfect example of this is Kents Hill Park which is one of the best places to go in Milton Keynes to look at trees. The woodland was planted after the second world war and includes a variety of conifers including Douglas Fir, Corsican Pine and Norway Spruce. The area is becoming something of an arboretum with a broad variety of tree species such as Redwoods and Sweet Chestnut. It doesn’t take long to walk around Kents Hill Park, but it does link into the other local parks and connects with the Ouzel Valley Park if you want to take a longer stroll.
There is a local shop, but Kingston District Centre is 0.5 miles and a 10 minute walk away. Shops include Tesco Extra, M&S, Next, Boots and Wilko, and there are numerous restaurants including Prezzo, Frankie & Benny’s and Nando’s. There is a choice for local schooling including numerous Primary Schools and the new Kents Hill Park ‘All Through’ School taking children from ages 4 – 19.
Being in south-east Milton Keynes means excellent transport links in the form of J13 & 14 of the M1, the A421 to Bedford and A5.
