“This was the first house I viewed and I knew it was the one for us immediately. That was even before I found out how amazing the local area and schools are!”
Why buy this home?
This beautiful home has been extended and thoughtfully improved by the current owners to compliment modern family life.
The entrance hall has wooden floors for ease of cleaning up muddy footprints. There is also a built-in shoe cupboard and further coat cupboard and storage in the WC. The living room is bright and airy due to the front of the house being south facing. “We find this room is nice and quiet because we are set back substantially from the road, and the trees block any noise”.
Double doors lead through to the kitchen/breakfast room, which is where you get the sense that the layout has been cleverly amended. “We moved the door over to create another set of cupboards in the kitchen”. The rear patio door has also been moved to create space for a breakfast bar which provides yet more cupboard and worktop space. The kitchen extends in to the converted garage providing a 24′ long space that is firmly the heart of this home. “This is where we do our entertaining. The space means that we can have a lot of friends round at one time without it feeling cramped”.
There is also a utility room with space for washing machine and fridge/freezer, as well as another door to the driveway. The rear garden is low maintenance with a decked area and raised lawn. A canopy provides a shaded area in the summer.
On the first floor is a recently refitted shower room which is fully tiled, has a heated towel rail and an all-important window. There are two double bedrooms which both have fitted wardrobes, and a good size single bedroom.
The top floor is dedicated to the master suite with 5 built-in cupboards and an impressive ensuite which was refitted at the same time as the shower room on the first floor.
There is ample off-road parking available on the driveway as well as plenty of on-street parking available for visitors.
More about the location…
Tattenhoe and Tattenhoe Park are adjacent districts of Milton Keynes in the ancient parish of Tattenhoe. It is located at the south-western edge of the city, not far from the ruins of Snelshall Priory. It contains Howe Park Wood, one of England’s few remaining primeval woodlands, and home to a wide variety of wildlife.
The village was abandoned in the 16th century and had its own moated manor house and church (1540, perhaps 12th century). By the time redevelopment began, it consisted of just three farms and St. Giles’s Church, but was recognised as a village rather than a hamlet.
The village also has the Tattenhoe Sports Pavilion, which is run by InspireAll (formerly Hertsmere Leisure) in partnership with the Milton Keynes Council. They offer the temporary home of Westcroft Library, as well as a lounge area next to the cafe and bar on site. The pavilion also has legacy playing fields, an astro turf available for hire, a meeting room available for hire and free parking on site.
Tattenhoe Valley Park is a delightful place for a walk, cycle or horseride, with plenty of wildlife to enjoy in the necklace of ponds splashing over rocks and providing a fantastic habitat for insect, bird and waterlife.
Primary education is provided by Howe Park School (which has an Outstanding Ofsted report) and Secondary Education is provided by Shenley Brook End School.
