This is an exceptionally spacious, custom designed, comfortable family home built for the current vendors, which, we think, is very well suited to modern family living. Situated on generous attractive and well maintained grounds, the property offers a rural country life, yet is only two miles from Bathgate, but with immediate access to the central belt motorway network. Edinburgh Airport is only 20 minutes away and this easy access to the independent school Cliftonhall.
Dhorbru, built in 1999 extends to approx 3,200 sq. ft, and the grounds are 2.5 acres in size. The property has a self-contained one bedroom annexe with separate living room, kitchen and shower room, with it’s own boiler and central heating system. Currently operated as a corporate let delivering a useful income stream, however other possibilities exist for its use, such as office space or accommodation for elderly family members.
Within the grounds is a substantial triple car garage, and in conjunction with the substantial plot we think options exist for equestrian uses. A pony could be kept at the property and one of the garages converted to stabling. There would be immediate access to bridal paths adjacent to the property.
The owners have previously obtained planning permission to build office accommodation to the side and rear of the triple car garage. This has since lapsed, but the precedent exists for the possibility of this being re-instated.
The accommodation begins with a vestibule which leads into a large hallway with a glass partition separating the hall from the sitting room. The wonderful well-proportioned sitting room has a fireplace, with a beautiful Jotul gas flame effect stove inset, and glazed double doors to the decked terrace which offers lovely views towards the tree lined garden and is ideal for outdoor entertaining.
There is a formal dining room again with wonderful garden views. Of particular note is the high-quality island kitchen, featuring a range of base and wall mounted units with integrated appliances such as the De Dietrich five ring gas hob, Stoves double oven, NEFF dishwasher and others. Positioned next to the kitchen/breakfast room is a dual aspect family room and a well-equipped utility room with WC.
Excluding the annexe, this wonderful family home comfortably hosts four well-appointed ensuite bedrooms with integrated wardrobe space. The main family bathroom benefits from a luxurious Jacuzzi bath whilst the master bedroom offers an exceptional amount of wardrobe space, dressing room and the largest ensuite shower room. In total there are 4 bathrooms and 2 wc’s.
Externally, our clients have been particularly attentive to the large garden and grounds which are maintained to an exacting standard and would be ideal for child’s play. The plot offers more intimate outdoor living spaces such as the decked terrace, patio, pergola all ideal for entertaining. The bulk of grounds are laid to lawn and are well-kept. In terms of parking, as well as the garaging, the property has a large gravel drivewayThis well-maintained property has underfloor heating, a Worcester Bosch boiler, an integral vacuum system, double glazing and an alarm system.
