Welcome to Knowepark
As the arterial roads capillary off into peaceful streets and lanes, arrive in sought after Braehead where Knowepark is nestled on a generous garden plot with a large pillared driveway providing ample parking space.
Nestled snugly between Falkirk and Edinburgh, and adjacent to the town of Linlithgow; enjoy the best of both worlds, away from it all yet within easy reach of roads and transport links when duty calls.
Make your way to the stone-built storm porch, a practical comfort to the home, whilst giving an excellent first impression. Steeped in history, Knowepark is a beautiful late Victorian semi-detached villa, dating back to the 1885. High ceilings instantly elevate this period home, as do the abundant period features on display throughout, with mention being given to numerous fireplace, tiled floor in the hallway and ornate cornicing.
Impressive Drawing Room
Turning left upon entry to the lower level, seek sanctuary in the serene drawing room, a formal space where light streams in through the large sash bay window overlooking the front garden. 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 period charms on offer.
Relaxing Sitting Room
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.
Before heading through to the dining room, navigate yourself through the study which could easily be used as a fifth bedroom or, perhaps more likely, the ideal kid’s play room – with another Edinburgh cupboard offering more storage space. Guests and friends can refresh in the downstairs WC, positioned next to the study.
Dine in Style
Continuing through, step into the family room or dining room, kept warm by it’s wood burning stove. A sociable everyday room, it forms the ideal everyday 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 contemporary in style, this spacious kitchen offers wood laminate units providing plentiful storage space as well as integrated appliances and double doors which lead out into the glorious east-to-west garden. Next door, a well-equipped utility room houses the laundry appliances.
Returning to the grand half landing wooden staircase ascend to the roomy landing on the upper floor. Currently accommodating three hugely spacious and light-filled king-size bedrooms as well as a further single bedroom which makes for an ideal child’s bedroom – nearby, there is a recently installed heritage style bathroom complete with shower, freestanding Victorian bath, WC, and wash basin. The rooms to the rear elevation offer a far-reaching vista over the local townscape, River Forth and beyond.
Knowepark represents an oasis of calm in the busy bustle of Bo’ness. It’s generous garden, which is largely laid to lawn, will strike up instant appeal with buyers – as will the utterly captivating views over the river. The outdoor space of Knowepark offers the perfect space to relax and unwind…whilst you soaking up the sun all day long.
