A new home but without the price tag. This popular ‘Alton’ house style by Taylor Wimpey is only 8 months old meaning you can pick up a bargain (the Alton has prices starting from £339,950 at the time of writing) and don’t have to pay for additional upgrades.
Downstairs has a sociable kitchen/diner at the heart of it. Contrasting white and grey units give a very modern feel to the kitchen which is offset against grey worktops. Integrated appliances include a fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine, as well as an electric double oven and electric hob. The separating worktop to the dining area overhangs meaning it doubles up as a breakfast bar. The dining area itself is big enough for a six-seater dining table. There is understairs storage in the kitchen and a useful WC.
The living room is at the back of the house with French doors on to this home’s party piece – the rear garden. You won’t realise from the front, but this is a corner plot meaning the garden opens up into a fan shape. Its size means plenty of room for budding gardeners to express their creativity, or for younger couples to create various seating areas and a very sociable space. It is a blank canvass with a small patio area outside the rear doors and another at the back where a shed currently sits. There are two side access points – one leading to the parking and the other to the front.
The first floor has a large bedroom at the rear. It is comfortably big enough for an adult to have their own private space or for two children to share. The bathroom sits between this bedroom and the smaller third. It is fully tiled around the bath, has a glass shower screen and overhead shower.
The master bedroom occupies the top floor and has stunning vaulted ceilings making it a bright and airy space. Being one of the main selling features, it certainly doesn’t disappoint and has plenty of room for furniture. There is also an ensuite with a double shower cubicle.
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.
