Property description

An extended Grade II listed 17th century stone and thatched cottage with a heated swimming pool, and no upper chain, situated in a quiet backwater of Great Linford.

The Mead dates back to 1617 and has been updated over the years to combine character features, such as exposed beams, with modern fixtures and fittings. The accommodation is set over three floors and includes a sitting room and dining room, both of which have inglenook fireplaces and oak flooring, and a family room/study which has tiled flooring. Also on the ground floor is a refitted kitchen/breakfast room, and a utility room. There are four bedrooms, an en suite shower room and a modern four piece bathroom on the first floor. There is a further double bedroom and a store on the second floor. A driveway leads to a stone built garage which has power and lighting, and an electric roller door, and is currently spit to the rear providing a gym and sauna area. Double gates lead to a further gravelled parking area.

Kitchen/Breakfast Room

The refitted kitchen/breakfast room has a tiled floor with underfloor heating, and an extensive range of wall and base units with marble work surfaces. The central island has a granite work surface, a breakfast bar and a five ring gas hob with an oven under. Other appliances include a built-in dishwasher, and two ovens, a microwave, and a coffee machine with a TV over. There are inset ceiling spot lights, and doors to the garden.

Principal Bedroom

The dual aspect master bedroom has exposed timber beams, and a fully tiled en suite wet room which has a shower area, a modern wash basin set on a wooden shelf, and a WC. The other three bedrooms on the first floor all have built-in storage, with bedroom four having an extensive range of built-in wardrobes.


The front garden is laid to lawn with stocked borders, and an ornamental fish pond. The landscaped rear garden has established shrub and flower borders, several paved patio areas, as well as a raised wooden decking area by the heated Roman ended swimming pool.


Great Linford has a selection of shops and a public house. The old village has the historic Manor House, an art centre, a church, village hall, and a cricket club. Central Milton Keynes shopping centre and all the amenities are approximately 2 miles away.
