If you are looking for a home with green open spaces within walking distance, you are going to fall in love with this property.
As soon as you drive down historic Mill Road and pass the stunning thatched cottages, you no longer feel as though you are in a town, and certainly not 1.2 miles away from Bletchley Train Station. When approaching the house itself, the first thing you notice is the spacious, block paved driveway which can easily accommodate several vehicles.
Stepping through the front door, you are welcomed by a wide entrance hall which is illuminated with natural light thanks to the extra window next to the front door. You immediately get the sense of the quality of the refurbishment by the current owners, from the stunning floor to the feature radiators and bespoke storage. To the left is the bright and open living room with its large picture window which faces the communal green. Its feature fireplace with granite surround makes it the perfect, cosy space to relax after a long day. Through the living room is the dining room which is large enough to host family meals and dinner parties. From here the patio doors give you your first glimpse of the impressive rear garden …
Mainly laid to lawn with mature shrubs, fruit and magnolia trees in its borders, it is a wonderful space and a haven for those with green fingers. The rear of the garden is a sun-trap and so a private seating area has been installed to make the most of this. With side access one side and storage the other, it really is a superb space for all ages. Back inside the house and the downstairs is completed by the kitchen. Fitted with Shaker style units, it has a modern touch with a classic feel. It has been cleverly designed with central island providing additional worktop space, which is also on wheels so can be moved around the kitchen. Integrated appliances include a double oven, dishwasher, induction hob and fridge/freezer with space for a washing machine. From the kitchen you can walk back to the entrance hall, and as you do you pass the built-in under stairs storage.
Walking upstairs, your eyes are drawn up to the impressive feature lighting. There is a built-in bookcase on the landing. The third bedroom is a comfortable double with uninterrupted views from the window. From here you catch a glimpse of the well-tended gardens, beautiful chimney pots and thatched roofs of Mill Road. A hidden door leads to a walk-in wardrobe.
The second bedroom is a superb size making it ideal for an older child or adult to create their own personal space. The tasteful master bedroom is the perfect retreat as it is on the opposite side of the house. It too has a built-in wardrobe and also a separate area away from the bed which is currently being used as a reading nook but would make a perfect dressing area or work space.
The bathroom is opposite the master and adds a touch of luxury to the upstairs. Fully tiled with bath, overhead shower and glass shower screen, it means you can live in a more historic area without sacrificing modern conveniences. Little touches such as underfloor heating, custom vanity and a demisting mirror will make it hard to drag yourself out of here on a cold winter morning. Luckily though there is a separate WC next to the bathroom so you won’t feel guilty if you do treat yourself to an extra 5 minutes in the shower! With quartz splashback, countertop and even window sill, you really do feel the attention to detail in this home.
Lastly there is an integral garage which provides ample storage space, but also gives the potential to make the downstairs living space even larger should you wish to (stpp).
This home really does have to be viewed to be appreciated and we don’t expect it to be available for long, so we encourage an early viewing to avoid disappointment.
More about the location…
Water Eaton is an area of Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, England and in the civil parish of Bletchley and Fenny Stratford. It is to the south of Fenny Stratford, and is one of the ancient villages of Buckinghamshire that became incorporated as part of Milton Keynes in 1967.
Its jewel in the crown is Waterhall Park which was once the grounds of Waterhall Manor. A public footpath leading from the car park follows the meandering course of the River Ouzel, its banks lush with a profusion of colourful plants, its waters heavy with reeds and lilies.
On its other side Waterhall Park is bordered by the Grand Union Canal, beginning its journey through the city, shadowed by the towering columns of Lombardy Poplar trees which mark the broadwalk path by the canal.
Waterhall was once pasture land with ridge and furrow still visible, farmed by Waterhall Farm. But it takes its name from the local manor, whose estate it was once part of. The former watermill is now a private house with the disused mill race still running towards it.
From the picnic benches and seats scattered near the river bank, you can look out over the open farmland to Brickhill Woods and the Woburn estate in the distance.
