A six-bedroom home in an area of Milton Keynes which is so steeped in local history that it was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, has gone on the market for a cool £950,000.

Nestled in a quiet cul-de-sac within the highly regarded area of Shenley Church End, the charming family home boasts over 2,900 sq ft and has been tastefully modernised and refurbished throughout.

The most fascinating feature of the home is the fact it is privately positioned adjacent to the ancient and protected green land of ‘The Toot’. Shenley Church End oozes character and history and is believed to be one of the original villages of Milton Keynes and is mentioned in the Doomsday Book of 1086. The immediate location is also home to a 12th Century Church – St. Marys and ‘The Toot’ was the site of the 13th Century Motte and Bailey Castle which is now owned by The Parks Trust used for grazing.
