A Grade II listed single floor property tucked away in the quiet village of Little Brickhill overlooking the famous Roman road, Watling Street. A contemporary adaption from the original “Old Green Man Coaching Inn”, parts of this charming property date back to the 17th century – think about that for a moment. It was standing before The Battle of Trafalgar and the American War for Independence. Though steeped in history this modern conversion from four years ago is harmonious with it’s Grade II listing, surrounding properties and aspect in the village.
Little Brickhill is surrounded by countryside, yet has easy access to Bletchley and Central Milton Keynes to the north, with Leighton Buzzard to the south. All of which offer schools, healthcare options, great recreational facilities and many shopping opportunities. Rail connections, the M1 motorway and A5 are within easy reach as are many other towns and smaller villages for you to discover.
The conversion from “pub-to-property’ has created several white painted residences with Brooke Cottage placed on the far right. Two large teal painted bay windows overlook the street offering a distinct facia. The property ‘rises’ from the pavement so the interior cannot be seen from the outside, providing additional privacy and security.
Entry is gained from a side gateway to the rear garden leading to the half glazed door that admits you into the reception area with built in cloakroom cupboard. Moving clockwise and the open plan lounge/dining/kitchen area is revealed. Warm wood laminate flooring follows you into this high ceilinged room and contrasts with the dove white decor reflecting the bright sunshine from the large bay window and double glazed UPVC patio doors that lead back into the rear garden.
The kitchen is to one side and held in place by a broad breakfast bar with underneath storage cupboards. In the galley fashion and although trim, it offers everything to hand. It has numerous fully fitted storage cupboards and drawers, finished in soft buttermilk. Offset by darker laminate worktops, an Italian styled stainless steel sink, a Bosch four ring gas hob and fan assisted electric oven.
The spacious master bedroom, where the second bay window fills the room with light. Decor is dove white and the room has fully fitted contrasting carpet. To one side is a discrete built in cupboard, housing power meters and granting additional storage. The bathroom displays bronze coloured ceramic floor tiles, white walls and designer styled WC, hand basin, chrome heated towel rail and a pear shaped bath with wall fitted shower.
The sizable second bedroom decor shows dove white ceiling and walls with a fully fitted contrasting carpet. Brightly lit from the large window that overlooks the broad patio in the rear garden.
The enclosed garden is accessed from the outside via two gates, one to the side and one at the far end. The second gate is connected to the three car off road parking space. From the large patio area the rail sleeper contained raised garden is approached via the slabbed steps to the completely astro turfed lawn. There are no flower beds making this practically zero maintenance (and being large enough to cater for a gazebo and a summer house you’ll need all the help you can get!). And, tucked away to the far left there is a secure, brick built storage structure to keep your barbecue and sun lounger safe.
