“We specifically chose this plot because it is set back from the road and overlooks greenery. There was also land to the side which we turned into extra parking”
“This was our first family home with our 3 year old. When we first drove onto the estate, it was a lovely sunny day and we could just see people and children enjoying themselves round the lake, going for walks and on bikes/scooters. We knew from then that this is where we wanted to live”.
As soon as you enter this lovely home you feel a sense of calm from the stylish monochrome decor that runs throughout. Immediately to the left of the entrance hall is the separate kitchen. “I love the view over the greenery outside the front of the house. You don’t feel like you are living on a new development at all”. The integrated appliances include a fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. The current owners have also cleverly utilised wasted corner space by adding an additional worktop and high-rise units.
The living room is large enough for a family dining table without making the sofa area feel cramped. “We decided to install ‘slide & pivot’ doors to open up the living space into the rear garden. It’s perfect for entertaining and the kids love it in the summer”. The rear garden is family (and pet!) friendly due to the artificial lawn which means the garden can be used all year round, and summer days can be spent enjoying the garden rather than maintaining it. There is side access to the carport which has enough off-road parking for 3 cars – a rarity on most modern houses!
More impressive still is the size of the second bedroom. Stretching the entire width of the house, it is easily big enough for two children to share, or one lucky person to make their own private space. Wardrobes have been fitted too. The spacious family bathroom is fully tiled and has a large fitted mirror. It serves both the large second bedroom and the third double bedroom on the first floor.
Without a doubt our favourite feature of this home is the stunning master suite which occupies the entirety of the top floor. A private, open staircase provides ample wall space; a blank canvas ideal for a statement art piece or feature wall. The vaulted ceilings create a light and airy feel, whilst the Velux-style window provides a welcoming freshness. The current owners also installed built-in wardrobes stretching the width of the room which provides ever useful storage. Naturally, there is also an ensuite with double shower cubicle to complete the modern design.
“We’ll really miss our neighbours and the general community. The lakes are beautiful to walk around and the park down the road is great for the kids to burn off some energy! Two of our children go to the Primary School and it is fantastic.”
*Please note that the master bedroom photo has been virtually furnished*
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.
