The Story

DESIRABLE WILLEN
The property is located on a no through road, he explains. It is surrounded by greenery, with paddocks in one direction and Willen Lake to the other.
“Willen is a highly desirable area of Milton Keynes for a variety of reasons, it is greener and less densely populated than some other places,” he says. “There is a real sense of having lots of open space right on your doorstep.”
Those living there can stroll or cycle down to the lake easily, where there is an attractive pagoda, or can cycle further afield with a picnic to explore the Ouzel Valley. Willen Lakeside Park is also a great attraction. The north lake is a wildlife sanctuary and a favourite of migrating aquatic birds, while on the island goats graze the vegetation. The south lake offers leisure facilities and there is often something going on to watch out on the water.
“For people with children or those who enjoy walking, running and cycling, this is a perfect place to be,” he adds.

IDEAL LAYOUT
The house on Aldrich Drive is well laid out, with three bedrooms and bathrooms on the ground floor. One bathroom and shower room are en suite and there is also a family shower room.
“There are two additional bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room, on the first floor,” he says. “This arrangement offers great flexibility. Those with older or less mobile family members will find the ground floor sleeping accommodation very useful. Equally, teenagers or older children could be given their own space upstairs or the home owners may wish to keep the upper level as a suite for guests.”

LIGHT FANTASTIC
Also on the ground floor is the entrance hall, which leads through to the bright atrium or drawing room space. There is also a spacious family room, a dining room and a spectacular kitchen breakfast room.
“What is incredible about this house is the light,” says the agent. “The current owners have changed all the windows and glass doors, and light just floods in from all directions. The atrium and the kitchen have light pouring in from above; there is also an abundance doors and windows all around the house, some of which are one way, enhancing the feeling of privacy.”

STUNNING KITCHEN
The atrium, which could be a wonderful entertaining space and the expansive kitchen breakfast room would also be perfect for those who enjoy socialising.
“The whole house has been kept very modern and light in its décor, with neutral walls, ceilings and floors. The kitchen, which had underfloor heating, has been fitted with high gloss units, a centre island and Bosch and Neff appliances,” he says. “There is plenty of room in here for dining or comfortable furniture, and doors open up on to the terrace outside. You can imagine how much enjoyment the next owners will have here, particularly in the summer months, when they can be in and out from the garden.”

OUTSIDE LIVING
The outside space at the Aldrich Drive house has been designed to be low maintenance and private. It is south west facing and offers generous terracing for outside dining and entertaining, as well as plenty of areas for sitting out in the sunshine. There is plenty of off road parking, plus a triple garage with remote controlled electric roller doors.
“This house already offers significant living space but if someone did want to make it even bigger there is planning permission to extend out over the garage,” he says. “Although this house has been finished, someone else could take it further. But as it stands, this is an exceptional, contemporary home in a very desirable location.”

Setting The Scene

The property is entered via a private driveway, with parking for multiple vehicles. There is also a triple garage with remote electric doors.
The south west facing garden is very private and secure. It is a low maintenance garden, with multiple seating areas, which enjoys sunshine for large parts of the day.
