The Story

UNIQUE HOME
Orchard House was built 22 years ago by the previous owner. Terry and his wife were moving up from Ealing, keen to live somewhere with good access to the motorway and Milton Keynes, while also offering privacy, seclusion and tranquillity. "For us the position of the house was very important," he says. "This was only the second home we saw when we were looking and we knew immediately that we wanted it. It was within a small enclave of houses, which was safe and secure but within easy reach of Newport Pagnell town centre. I travelled a lot at the time and my wife knew she would be very happy to be here." The house had a big garden and plenty of internal space yet was also homely. "At the time we felt it was unique," he adds. "Now with the work we have done it is even better."
SUMPTUOUS SUITES
The detached property is entered via a spacious and welcoming reception hall, leading into the main living areas. There is a large study, which could also be a play room if required, together with the drawing room, dining room and impressive kitchen dining family room. Also on the ground floor, is the utility room and cloakroom. Upstairs, a spacious and light landing leads to all four double bedrooms. The master suite features its own large dressing room and sumptuous en suite bathroom, which has a sunken bath and marble surrounds. "Three of the bedrooms are en suite, making this a great family home and an easy place for people to come and stay," Terry adds.
SPECIAL TOUCHES
The work to the house carried out by Stephanie Dunning was significant, he explains. "The drawing room originally backed on to a sun room but we took the wall down and opened it all up: above that we extended one of the bedrooms and made a much bigger en suite bathroom," he says. "We knocked through from the kitchen
dining room into the family room to create a much larger space." Real oak flooring was laid in the reception hall and the drawing room. "Everywhere was decorated using Farrow & Ball shades, the fireplace in the drawing room was replaced and features such as chandeliers were brought in," he says.
ALL SEASONS
Orchard House has been a comfortable and easy house to live in, offering plenty of space for relaxation, work and entertaining. "The drawing room is nice and cosy in the winter when the fire is lit," Terry says. "In the summer, it is good to open the bi-folding doors, making the kitchen and the garden warm when the weather is warm. This is ideal for entertaining: we have had barbecues here for 35 guests, with people wandering in and out."
VIBRANT TOWN
The Newport Pagnell location of the house has exceeded all Terry's expectations. He and his family have relished the privacy and tranquillity of Portfields Farm, as well as the proximity to the bustling town, with all its amenities. "It was really important to us to be within reach of everything we needed," he says. "From here, we can walk into Newport Pagnell in 10 minutes and get to shops, pubs, coffee shops and restaurants. Milton Keynes is also easy to access from here - and then you can catch a train and be at Euston within 30 minutes." Terry adds: "This has been a wonderful place to live and bring up our daughter. We have been very happy here and so although we are looking forward to the adventure of moving on we are also very sad to be leaving."

Setting The Scene

The driveway to Orchard House is accessed via five-bar gated entrance. There is also an extensive gravel area, which offers secure parking for numerous vehicles, together with a detached double garage with twin electric doors. The rear and side gardens provide space for kids to play, storage areas and also a large entertaining terrace. As there are no houses directly behind the house and the mature trees bordering the gardens, the privacy is incredible.
