Why buy this home?
If you’re looking for an opportunity for your family to get on the property ladder, this could be the house for you…
This fabulous four bedroom house is offered on the shared ownership scheme meaning that you own part/rent part of the house. You will need to take out a mortgage (or buy cash) for the £175,000 50% share meaning a deposit will be needed (the amount depends on your income and what mortgage prodcut you go for). The rent is £340 per month payable to Paradigm Housing Association. There is also a £5,000 charge for fixtures and fittings.
The downstairs living space has a separate kitchen with integrated fridge/freezer and washing machine. There is ample cupboard and worktop space for everything to need to feed a family! In between the kitchen and living room is an ever useful WC. The living room itself is large enough for sofas and a dining table. There is rear access to the sizable south-facing garden which wraps around the back of the driveway, and has its own side access.
On the first floor is the large master bedroom with that has a built-in wardrobe but also plently of space for freestanding wardrobes. The family bathroom has an overhead shower and is fully tiled around the bath. The third bedroom is also on this floor which is a double and ideal for a young child that needs to be on the same floor as parents.
The top floor is home to the sizeable second bedroom which offers the opportunity for an older child to have their personal space. The fourth bedroom is a single and could easily be used as a homework study room if desired.

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 Primary School opened in 2016 and accepts children from age 3 (nursery) to age 11 (Year 6). Many parents take advantage of the Grammar Schools in Aylesbury for Secondary education being only approximately 11 miles away.
In 2017 Newton Leys District Centre opened providing local conveniences such as a Costa, Chinese Takeaway, Fish and Chip Shop, Dry Cleaners, Hair Salon and a 8000 sq ft Asda. At the end of April the Turing Key pub opened its doors and has already cemented itself as the heart of the community. It is in good company as there also numerous village pubs within a few miles such as The Three Locks at Stoke Hammond, The Crooked Billet at Newton Longville and The Betsey Wynne at Swanbourne.
