Show homes are renowned for being the best plot and a higher specification of finish, so it’s no surprise that this ex-show home is on a corner plot and has a south-facing garden.
As soon as you enter you immediately get a sense of space. Not only is the entrance hall wide enough for room for an armchair or other feature, but the windows that sit either side of the front door ensure it is bright and airy. Immediately on the right is the separate living room, which is a good size but still feels cosy. From here there are French doors which lead to the rear garden.
To the left of the entrance hall is the study which, unlike most, is such a good size that the current owners are utilising it as a playroom. Next to the study is the dining room which offers more flexibility still as if you didn’t want to dedicate a room for this purpose it could easily be used as a second living room or downstairs bedroom.
A deep storage cupboard in the entrance hall is a great place to keep coats and shoes out the way, with enough space for essentials such as an ironing board or vacuum cleaner. With all new builds there is a large WC, and this one is half-tiled with a window and built-in shelf for flowers or candles.
The kitchen/breakfast room is what most families look for nowadays and this one certainly doesn’t disappoint. With granite worktops and ceramic floor tiles, it is a sociable space where the family can cross paths and tell each other about their day. Integrated appliances include a dishwasher, fridge/freezer and washing machine as well as a gas hob and eye-level electric double oven. Further doors from here lead on to the rear garden which has both a patio and deck area at either side of the lawn. Being south-facing it captures the sun the majority of the day, and there is also side access to the tandem driveway and single garage.
Walking up to the first floor is a joy thanks to the sweeping staircase and galleried landing which, like the entrance hall, is filled with natural light thanks to the window overlooking the front of the house. The master bedroom is to one side providing parents with their own personal space. Thanks to the separate dressing area it doesn’t feel cramped, and of course there is an ensuite with a double shower cubicle.
Opposite the master is the fourth bedroom, which even though is the smallest, is still a double. This has been designed with families in mind and is ideal as a nursery near the master bedroom. Along the landing and the family bathroom is on the right which not only has a bath but also a double shower cubicle. It is fully tiled throughout making it easy to keep clean.
The remaining two bedrooms are both doubles with built-in wardrobes, but the second is such a good size it could have its own seating area making it ideal for a teenager or parent who wants their own space.
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 and Birmingham.
