Redrow Homes are renowned for understanding the needs of modern families, which is why their homes are built in the way that they are. Open plan spaces make spending time together as a family effortless, while the importance of relaxing alone is recognised through the inclusion of additional lounges and luxurious ensuite bathrooms.
“We wanted to bring up our children in a village so they understood the sense of community and lifestyle that goes with it. However, we still wanted to still be in a convenient location for work, so Deanshanger was the obvious choice being only a 10 minute drive to Central Milton Keynes”.
As you approach this gorgeous home you immediately get the sense of peace and seclusion as it is tucked away facing a hedgerow. Due to this there is ample off-road parking with space for 2-3 cars on the driveway in front of the garage, and another in front of the house.
Upon entering the home you are met by a WC to the right of the entrance hall and the living room to the left. The living room itself is a generous size with plenty of room for sofas on three of the four walls, making it a socialable space. The current owners have had Hillarys shutters installed on the windows which are sympathetic to the rural surroundings and mean you can control the amount of natural that floods in through the south-facing windows.
At the back of the house is the kitchen/breakfast room, which is the beating heart of this home. Stunning ceramic floor tiles are offset by the contrast of the wood-effect units and off-white doors. Integrated appliances include a dishwasher and fridge/freezer as well as an eye-level Smeg double oven and gas hob. The washing machine is installed in a separate utility cupboard to reduce the noise in the open-plan space.
The horseshoe shape creates a natural separation from the dining area in the form of a bar, and the overhanging worktop makes it the ideal place for breakfast or to socialise whilst the chef makes dinner. Sliding doors open up to the rear garden; its size is yet another reminder that this was not your average new build development. Not only is there enough space for a comfortable patio and lawn, but the space means the house could be easily extended (stpp) without sacrificing room for children to play.
The staircase leading to the first floor has a window ensuring it is naturally illuminated during the day, whilst the central landing ensures the bedrooms sizes are maximised.
The master bedroom is at the front of the house so, like the living room, benefits from south-facing windows. The ensuite has a double shower cubicle laced with trendy monochrome tiles. The heated towel rail brings a welcome relief to frosty winter mornings. Luxuries such as Porcelanosa floor tiles, Santorini wash basins with Altitude waterfall taps and polished chrome downlights grace both the ensuite and the main family bathroom.
The smallest bedroom is next to the master bedroom making it ideal as a nursery or home office. The second bedroom is a comfortable size and has built-in sliding door wardrobes, whilst the third bedroom is also a double.
