Welcome to Rivendell
Centrally set, yet removed from the footfall of this vibrant commuter town of Linlithgow, the peace and privacy of Rivendell, accessed via a private driveway, comes as a welcome surprise.
Park up and admire the handsome stone façade of Rivendell, set upon a south facing mature garden plot, within easy walking of town centre and train station.
Meticulous attention has been paid to the recent building works, including the sourcing of stone from a quarry in north east England to geologically match the original cottage.
Make your way to the stone-built storm porch with an original tiled floor, a practical comfort to the home, whilst giving an excellent first impression. Steeped in history, Rivendell is a beautiful late Victorian cottage house, dating back to the 1890s, which has undergone a significant refurbishment to create a wonderful home fit for the growing family.
High ceilings instantly elevate this period home, as do the abundant period features on display throughout, with mention being given to numerous fireplaces, and original ornate cornicing in lounge and principal bedroom.
Sumptuous Dining Room
Turning right upon entry to the ground floor, seek sanctuary in the serene dining room, a formal space where light streams in through the broad sash and case window overlooking the Linlithgow townscape. The ultimate entertaining space, impress friends and acquaintances in this large, light room, surrounded by gorgeous ornate cornicing. Pour a drink from a bottle kept in the Edinburgh press and soak up the period charms on offer.
A spacious, airy, and yet embracing sitting room, there is ample room for sofas and other furniture, a log burner offers warmth and welcome throughout the year. It is the perfect space in which to relax with a book or watch a movie.
Open Plan Living
Continuing through, step into the kitchen/living area, kept warm by its wood burning stove. A sociable everyday room, it forms the ideal day-to-day living space. Feast in formality and style, or cosy up for some home working, whilst listening to the crackles of the multi-fuel stove recessed into an open stone fireplace.
Bright, inviting and chic in style, this spacious kitchen offers wooden units providing plentiful storage space, topped with granite worktops, as well as integrated appliances, clothes pully, and a rather fabulous double Belfast ceramic sink. Next door, a well-organised pantry offers additional storage space whilst a utility room houses the laundry appliances and provides access to a handy WC where guests can refresh.
Make your way through to the bountiful principal bedroom, instantly captivating and swimming with light courtesy of the tall window overlooking the Linlithgow skyline. Supremely spacious, there is ample room for a wardrobe and super-king-size bed. To the rear, a dressing area precedes the ensuite bathroom, furnished with shower, bath, wash basin and WC.
Returning to entrance hall, ascend to the hugely spacious and light-filled landing on the upper floor. Currently accommodating three hugely spacious and light-filled king-size bedrooms as well as an impressive, vaulted study illuminated by four large south facing windows – nearby, there is a recently installed heritage style bathroom complete with shower, a huge freestanding Victorian bath, WC, and a double counter top sink. The rooms to the front elevation offer a far-reaching vista over the local townscape, Linlithgow Loch and beyond.
