Why buy this home?
Being a double-fronted house means you benefit from a central entrance hall, which is great for ensuring shoes are removed before entering the room. There is a WC in the entrance hall too.
Off to the right is the kitchen/diner. There is space for a table and chairs, and thanks to the windows to the front and rear it is a bright space. Integrated appliances include a fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer as well as a gas hob and electric oven.
To the left of the entrance hall is the living room which has plenty of space for a sofa and an arm chair. There is an electric fire for those colder evenings too. At the rear of the living room is a large conservatory which, thanks to its glass roof, is an absolute suntrap. It is a great additional space that can be used as a dining room, play room, home office or even somewhere to sit and relax. The rear garden is a good size and is mostly laid to lawn. From here there is access to the allocated parking to the rear of the property.
The stairwell to the first floor is a lovely feature thanks to the small galleried landing and window overlooking the garden. The master bedroom has been tastefully decorated by the current owner and also has its own ensuite. The second bedroom is a small double but is well suited for young children. The third bedroom is currently being used as a dressing room, but could easily be a nursery or home office.
More about the location…
Bletchley Park is an English country house and estate in Milton Keynes that became the principal centre of Allied code-breaking during the Second World War.
During World War II, the estate housed the Government Code and Cypher School (GC&CS), which regularly penetrated the secret communications of the Axis Powers – most importantly the German Enigma and Lorenz ciphers; among its most notable early personnel the GC&CS team of codebreakers included Alan Turing, Gordon Welchman, Hugh Alexander and Stuart Milner-Barry. The nature of the work there was secret until many years after the war.
According to the official historian of British Intelligence, the “Ultra” intelligence produced at Bletchley shortened the war by two to four years, and without it the outcome of the war would have been uncertain. The team at Bletchley Park devised automatic machinery to help with decryption, culminating in the development of Colossus, the world’s first programmable digital electronic computer. Codebreaking operations at Bletchley Park came to an end in 1946 and all information about the wartime operations was classified until the mid-1970s.
More recently, Bletchley Park has been open to the public and houses interpretive exhibits and rebuilt huts as they would have appeared during their wartime operations. It receives hundreds of thousands of visitors annually. The separate National Museum of Computing, which includes a working replica Bombe machine and a rebuilt Colossus computer, is housed in Block H on the site.
The site is within walking distance to Bletchley Train Station which has regular trains to London Euston and Birmingham New Street.
