The Story

The impressive six-bedroom property embodies all the benefits of spacious period home living yet also sits within a superb position in the town of Olney, explains the agent marketing the house. “This is a very unique, detached period home,” he says. “It is typically Georgian in its appearance, with an extremely attractive façade. Inside, it offers four storeys of accommodation, which is arranged in the symmetrical style of the era, with rooms that are light and well-proportioned. “What enhances the great appeal of the house on Weston Road even more, however, is its magnificent position, close to the town centre and
beautiful Emberton Country Park, and within easy reach of Milton Keynes.”

THRIVING MARKET TOWN
The market town of Olney, known for its world famous pancake race held every year on Shrove Tuesday, is a vibrant centre. With an array of independent shops, boutiques and antiques’ outlets, it also offers cafés, bars, restaurants and pubs. “Everything you need is right here in Olney,” he says. “It is considered to be a very desirable place to live because of its wide range of amenities, as well as its traditional appeal.” Just 10 minutes from Milton Keynes, those living in Olney enjoy the best of both worlds, he points out. “They can enjoy all the character and market town attraction of Olney, while also being within easy reach of all
the high street shopping and major leisure amenities Milton Keynes offers. Milton Keynes, of course, also has excellent transport links, especially for those seeking good access to London.”

FAMILY LIVING
The house could suit someone keen to commute, perhaps, or looking to move from a large country home to a more manageable and convenient property. “It could be ideal for someone looking for substantial living space with a low maintenance yet still generous garden,” he says. The main reception space is on the ground floor of the house, where the formal drawing and dining room can be found at the front. Also at this level, is the kitchen to one side and the laundry room to the other. “The laundry room has French windows that open
into the garden and is adjoined at the other end to the drawing room,” he says. “It could therefore lend itself very well to becoming a family room.”

SPECIAL TOUCHES
With the kitchen also at the back of the house there could be potential for the creation of a sizeable living space. “Subject to the relevant planning permissions, new owners could look into opening the kitchen up right along the back of the house to create a nice kitchen dining and family area, with doors out on to the garden, and also leading through into the drawing room.” The French windows open on to a terrace, with space for outside dining and relaxation. Here the new owners will be able to host barbecues and enjoy long summer lunches. “Another great advantage to this house is the extra space there is in the basement.
This has been very nicely finished and could be a games room, bar or even cinema room,” he adds. “New owners could also use it as a work space if required.”

SUMPTUOUS SPACES
Three of the bedrooms and two bathrooms are situated on the first floor of the Weston Road house. The family bathroom is spacious and beautifully finished, with a free-standing bath and shower. The guest room enjoys its own en suite shower room. “Two more bedrooms and
the master suite are then located on the top floor,” he says. “The master bedroom opens into yet another large and luxurious bathroom.” The property also has the added benefit of a garden studio and a workshop, which could be used as work or hobby rooms.

COUNTRY PARK
The property looks out over its own garden and Emberton Country Park. This beautiful green expanse offers 200 acres of parkland and lakes. There are children’s play areas, as well as places to picnic, and there is also a conservation area and sailing club. The country park is set along the banks of the River Great Ouse and features a number of easy walks and cycle routes. “Those who like to get out into the fresh air will enjoy having Emberton Country Park so close,” the agent adds. “This house offers character and space, within a town setting, yet also provides the opportunity for those who are very busy to relax in all sorts
of different ways.”

Setting The Scene

The Weston Road property has a surprising amount of outdoor space, explains the agent marketing the house. To the rear, is a private and enclosed garden, with a terrace and lawn, and offering a high level of peace and quiet for such a central town location. “There is also a double garage with this house, providing rare parking for the location and property type,” he says. “It also has two outbuildings, including a workshop.”
