A Grand Designs Property Flirt

Screen Shot 2016-06-27 at 10.34.11

Well, well, well, what do we have here? Only a bona fide Grand Designs house to nose around!

Very tricky to guess the price on architecturally pioneeering houses like this one, but let’s have a stab. What to tell you first? This modern ’round house’ is in Deanshanger, a village close to MK that has schools for all age groups, village shops, a post office, doctor’s surgery, pub and all that jazzaroo.

It’s clad in Siberian Larch (otherwise known as ‘wood’) under a planted roof, with its massive cool calling card being its multi-aspect reception room/kitchen with full height windows that runs a whopper 57’9 in length. Four sets of bifold doors open onto the feature paved circular courtyard. Here, see for yourself.

What else? There are 4 bedrooms including a master suite with garden access and 3 further en-suite bedrooms including the family bathroom.

As well as the boring but necessaries like large separate utility room and a garage with its own cloakroom there’s all the fancy stuff like underfloor heating features throughout, brushed concrete floors in the kitchen (I lovvvvve), timber decking off off the master bedroom suite leading to a hot tub (not part of the price, you’ll have to negotiate that one separately). The bulk of the garden borders open farmland and is laid to lawn, with the cultivation of home produce, poultry and bees in mind.

That’s it people, no more clues other than to remind you that MK is very commutable, with a direct train line to Euston. Right then, steady the mind, think about your price (no cheating), and see if you’ve guessed the price. Get within £5k of the asking price and your own house will double in value. Just another example of the *cough* raw power of Muddy Stilettos!
