Why buy this home?
Location. Location. Location. They say the setting and lifestyle that your home offers is the most important aspect. In which case, the new owners of this house will count themselves lucky…
Wishart Green is a cul-de-sac of just eight houses located in south-east Milton Keynes, and backs on to fields. “I love the fact there’s a path at the end of the road that takes you through to the open countryside. It’s perfect if you own a dog or if you find refuge in a lazy Sunday afternoon stroll”.
A double-width driveway in front of the double garage offers parking for two cars and means no need to juggle cars in the morning! You enter this home via a central entrance hall which houses the staircase to the upper floor and a WC. The living room is at the front of the house and has a feature fireplace taking centre stage. Double doors lead on to a separate dining room which offers flexibility in usage.
A 121 sq. ft (approx) conservatory sits off the back of the dining room, yet doesn’t dwarf the south-facing rear garden – a testament to its size. The modern eat-in kitchen is at the rear of the house and enjoys views over the garden. Integrated appliances include a fridge/freezer, dishwasher, gas hob and electric oven. “We designed the kitchen so you never have to navigate the breakfast bar when cooking – all the appliances are at the same end. The breakfast bar is great as additional worksurface space when cooking as well!”.
Off the kitchen is a separate utility room with another sink and space for washing machine and tumble/dryer. There is also rear access to the garden making it an ideal ‘boot room’ in the colder, wetter months. Access to the integral double garage is via the utility room giving great potential for one, or even both garages, be converted into additional living space (stpp). This could make an ideal family room or even an impressive extension to the kitchen to make it a fashionable, central focal point of the home.
On the first floor, the master bedroom stands at a very comfortable 140 sq. ft (approx) and also has an entire wall of built-in wardrobes. There is an ensuite with a curved, corner shower enclosure, toilet and sink. The second bedroom has a small built-in wardrobe but also fitted cupboards which provide useful storage space, but can also be removed with ease if desired. Both the third and fourth bedrooms are small doubles, however as the first floor sits over only half of the double garage there is potential to extend (stpp) to improve the room sizes and even add an additional ensuite.
