Afton House, situated in a fantastic position, close to both Falkirk and West Lothian, redefines modern luxury living in its own unique way. Work, rest and play in a home that’s bigger in every way.
Our client has carefully considered each aspect of this project to maximise appeal for the growing family, both in terms of the internal layout, and the property’s excellent semi-rural location. Scotland’s central motorway network as well as Edinburgh Airport are situated a short drive away. Afton House is in the idyllic Hamlet of Candie. Whilst bearing a Falkirk postcode, the property is within 5 minutes of the West Lothian border and shares the surrounding scenery of the neighbouring village of Torphichen. This lesser known jewel in Falkirk District’s crown affords the prospective purchaser an immense living space of around 450m2, 5000 square feet, but at a more affordable price tag that of a West Lothian property. Recent development in the area has seen the erection of beautiful, bespoke, housing and it clear that Candie is on the up & coming desirable list.
Both Linlithgow and Polmont Railway Station can be accessed in under fifteen minutes – perfect for those commuting into the surrounding cities for work or pleasure.
The initial layout initially consists of a grand, and welcoming, hallway with a L-shaped staircase leading to the first floor. The reception area further offers an impressive WC with LED mirror, two sliding door storage spaces and a cloakroom – which houses the underfloor heating controls. On the opposite side of the hall to the WC is a large utility room which has been prepared for white goods.
The guest bedroom offers built-in wardrobe space and a luxurious ensuite featuring a raised standalone bath, vanity sink, concealed WC and a crisp LED mirror.
