Parkley Craigs Farmhouse is a unique five bedroomed property with a separate self-contained guest lodge and shared access to a six acre paddock. With stunning views over open countryside the location is a small and exclusive development on the edge of Linlithgow accessed by private road. The farmhouse (circa 1850) has been sympathetically remodelled and extended resulting in a fantastic modern home with the timeless appeal of a period property.
The location, just outside Linlithgow, affords the benefits of a semi-rural location, yet offers convenient access for the family to work and schools. There are Four to Five trains an hour from Linlithgow to Edinburgh Waverly taking approximately 22 minutes, Four trains an hour from Linlithgow to Glasgow Queen Street taking approximately 30 minutes to 50 minutes depending on which train, and Edinburgh Airport is less than 20 minutes away by car from Parkley Craigs. The independent schools Cliftonhall, Stewart’s Melville College and Mary Erskine all operate coach services for their pupils to and from Linlithgow.
Linlithgow itself has a wide range of amenities and cultural and sporting activities, including Rugby, Cricket, Golf, Tennis and Squash. Beecraigs Country Park is a few minutes drive away in which Cockleroy Hill offers great views across the Forth Valley, and in the town there a number of independent cafes and Bistro restaurants to enjoy.
Entering this home through the front door the bright and spacious Hall immediately affords views of the gardens through the large windows of the Boot Room while above your head a glass panel set into the Landing floor allows even more light in from the windows above. This area of the ground floor also provides access to the Utility Room, WC and the Garage.
Turning left from the front door, the hall leads you to the door of the large Dining Kitchen with solid oak faced units, granite worktops and Rangemaster cooker. In the dining area there is a fireplace with living flame gas fire. Moving back into the hall to your left is the main Living Room with sandstone fireplace and living flame gas fire. Off the Living Room a door leads to a small balcony with wonderful views to the south.
The other end of the Living Room provides access to a stunning Dining Room, whose floor to ceiling panoramic windows and elevated position present a tranquil countryside vista of the gardens, mature trees and rolling countryside that you will never take for granted as you enjoy the way it constantly changes with the passage of the seasons.
Turning back on yourself another door off the Dining Room leads to the TV Room, through which you arrive back in the Hall.
Also from this area of the Hall stairs lead down to the lower floor where two good sized double bedrooms benefit from intimate views of the pretty garden. They are both served by a bathroom with bath and separate shower cubicle. This floor also enjoys separate access to a small patio and the garden.
Back in the main Hall stairs lead up to an airy and spacious landing. Turning right leads to two large Double Bedrooms both with fitted wardrobes and dual aspect windows and a generous sized family Bathroom with roll top bath and separate shower enclosure.
At the opposite end of the Landing is a magnificent Master Bedroom with access to its own balcony and wonderful views. Off the Master Bedroom is a Dressing Room with feature stained glass windows. The stylish ensuite Shower Room has a large walk in shower area, twin basins, vanity units and great natural light provided by a large west facing window.
The house and grounds extend to approximately an acre. Located in the grounds is a fully equipped Guest Lodge with Shower Room, Kitchen area and large bright and spacious living area with two sets of patio doors that lead on to decking with southerly views across farmland. The present owners currently use this as an Office and a Gym. Adjacent to the Lodge is a work shop area.
The gardens with southerly and westerly aspects are laid to lawn complimented by a range of beds containing flowers and mature shrubs ensuring colour and interest throughout the year. A large patio is accessed from both the Dining Room and Boot Room. In addition to the large double garage there is driveway parking for three cars and an additional parking space adjacent to the property. The house and lodge are fully double glazed and have gas central heating and underfloor heating respectively.
In common with the other five properties of this exclusive development, the owners of Parkley Craigs Farmhouse have shared access to an adjacent 6 acre paddock which is surrounded by mature woodland.
