Spring has brought the garden to life. The garden is full of bird sounds and song, from woodpeckers, collared doves, to blackbirds, thrushes, robins, coal and long tailed tits, and everything between. Yet 48 Ashford Crescent, Grange Farm is a few minutes drive from Milton Keynes railway station (London 30 minutes) and the Centre. Everything is peaceful here, with all living spaces in the house, as well as the master bedroom, designed to bring the garden into the house. Marsh marigolds are now flowering in the central pond, with its cascade and fountain. Surrounding trees and fruit trees are blossoming and the wild roses are getting ready to display in May. Hemp agrimony, purple and yellow loosestrife and the magical water lilies beckon summer. Everything is private, including the balcony, overlooking the garden with uninterrupted views to Hazeley Woods. The veranda is a perfect place for a sundowner.
This eco designed 4 double bedroom house is unique in Milton Keynes, but is designed for easy living, with a 5 star holiday experience all year round.

With 12 square metres of structural solar panels (with fit payments); 2 mvhr units providing fresh ventilation and conserving the heat in the house; the Ecocent hot water tank and the extensive green roof (not only beautiful, but absorbing harmful pollutants around the house, reducing/slowing rainwater run off, and providing enhanced insulation), this is a house for the present and the future.
