Very rarely do properties of this calibre come to market. Situated amongst rolling farmland on the edge of the Royal Burgh of Linlithgow, the property offers spacious family living in a semi-rural setting around a twenty minute walk from the town centre.
This family home comprised of a renovated stone built cottage, dating from the mid-nineteenth century, which has been further improved by the addition of a two storey extension and conservatory to the rear and side elevations respectively. The result is a very individual, spacious, family home with a layout and host of features suited to welcoming visitors.
The stunning house has an attractive south west façade and is approached by stone paving, from here you arrive at a generous entrance hallway which has a large storage cupboard. Moving further inside there is a large dining hall which provides access to the main apartments within the original cottage, a split level stair case grants entry to the ground and first floor levels of the extension.
The dual aspect kitchen features country style units, integrated appliances, a generous amount of worksurface space, tiled splashback, hardwood flooring and sufficient space for a dining table and chairs. Accessed internally from the kitchen, or externally through double doors, is a large conservatory giving unspoilt views across the surrounding landscape towards the local landmark of Cockleroy, a prominent hill in the area.
Across the hall from the kitchen there is a utility room and an ensuite bedroom. The bedroom is of an excellent size whilst the ensuite shower room is partially tiled and consists of matching white WC and sink, and a separate corner shower unit with sliding doors.
On the ground floor part of the extension is a bright and airy lounge with decorative fireplace and sliding doors leading onto a patio sitting area. Further to the rear there is a large bedroom with ensuite bathroom and dressing area, this bedroom is currently used as a family room.
The first floor is approached by a half landing staircase from the dining hall, on this level there are two more bedrooms with built-in wardrobe space and a family bathroom. The magnificent master bedroom offers an indulgent amount of space and could be converted into two double bedrooms, as originally intended by the previous owner. The fully tiled heritage style bathroom consists of a four piece layout including a Victorian bath and corner shower unit. Velux windows on the landing allow natural light to pour in.

There is a generous parking bay made up of stone chippings to the front whilst to the side, the grounds feature a monoblocked driveway leading up to a double garage. To the rear, the gardens are fully enclosed and feature an L-shaped grassed lawn.
