Why buy this home?
As you walk in to this beautiful family home you are greeted by a spacious entrance hall which has been laid with wooden flooring to ensure muddy footprints are easy to clean! There is a built-in floor mat by the front door and an ever useful downstairs toilet as well. The living room is at the front of the house and boasts a bay window which allows plenty of natural light, along with the side window. Due to there being a separate dining room, the living room has ample space for furniture and a feature fireplace with gas fire for those cold winter evenings.
The kitchen has been reconfigured by the current owners and refitted with white high gloss units and black worksurfaces. “We opened up the kitchen door to the utility room to create space for more cupboards – you can never have enough cupboards in a family home! It also made the kitchen feel larger and more sociable”. Integrated appliances include a fridge, freezer, dishwasher and a standalone range cooker with 8 ring burner, which will be left for the new owners.
Off the kitchen is the dining room which is easily big enough for an 8-seater dining table. This opens up to the main focal point of this wonderful home – the 20 foot conservatory. “Originally we were having a smaller conservatory built, but we changed our mind halfway through the build and decided we wanted it to stretch the entire width of the house”. What this has unintentionally created is two separate areas in the conservatory ideal for a table and chairs and a seating area. “We wanted to ensure we could enjoy the conservatory all year round so we installed gas central heating and plenty of plug sockets for electrical appliances. It seemed daft not to take advantage of the peaceful surroundings!”. In our opinion the design is brilliant as the large glass panels provide unobstructed views over the landscaped rear garden and allotment behind.
The garden itself is very low maintenance meaning you can take advantage of Tattenhoe Valley Park when the sun is out rather than worry about cutting the lawn! There is outside plug sockets for water features and a rear light. A blend of decking and patio, it’s a quiet space to enjoy and relax.
The integral garage is accessed through the utility room and has an electric door. The walls are painted and skirting boards are fitting making it ready made to be converted to an extra reception room should you wish.
The master bedroom really does have that wow factor with its vaulted ceiling and large windows overlooking the park. Standing at an impressive 190 sq. ft (approx.) there is plenty of room for furniture and serves as the ideal escape from busy life. There is a substantial built-in wardrobe as well as a dressing table. The ensuite has a bath and electric shower, is fully tiled and has a heated towel rail as well as a window.
Light is the recurring theme upstairs due to the window at the top of the stairs illuminating the landing. The remaining three bedrooms all have built-in wardrobes meaning even the single fourth bedroom is a useable bedroom. The second bedroom also has a vanity unit with sink.
The four-piece family bathroom is fully tiled, has a window, towel rail and a useful separate shower cubicle for those busy mornings.
Parking is provided by a double width driveway meaning no need to move cars around depending on who is leaving earliest!
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.
