It’s possible this substantial family home couldn’t be better suited to the demands of professional family living in the current climate.
Commissioned by the current owners this unique family home not only boasts generous comfortable family living spaces, but also a lower ground floor level with 3 offices and a gym, providing quiet and spacious home office working environments separated from, but conveniently close to the main reception rooms.
Located in a quiet cul de sac, in the conservation village of Muirhouses, with quick access to the M9 and the central belt motorway network, Edinburgh Airport is just 15 minutes away and nearby is the popular Royal Burgh of Linlithgow with trains to Edinburgh and Glasgow every 15 minutes during commuting times. The leading independent school Clifton Hall is less than 12 miles away. Muirhouses itself enjoys a semi-rural location, and woodland walks and River Forth views are close at hand.
The current owners worked closely with their Architect to design an original property with a flexible layout. The evident superior finish and craftmanship in this property is seldom found in house building today. Over three levels the ground floor accommodation is accessed through double front doors to the vestibule leading into a spacious hall with quality solid wood flooring. There is a large cloakroom and separate WC, recently re-modelled and finished to a high contemporary standard, to the right. Off the hall to the left is the dining room which opens onto the sitting room with feature fireplace with carved timber and “Victoriana” style insets with coal effect gas fire. Through the back of the hall is an attractive fully equipped breakfasting kitchen with Silestone quartz based work surfaces and a host of integrated appliances.
A short flight of stairs leads off the kitchen down to a family room which itself is open plan onto a very attractive bright and spacious sun room with southerly aspects. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a separate laundry room and integrated large double garage.
Throughout the property you will note highest quality finishes to the floors, woodwork and imported Spanish solid oak doors.
The upper floor boasts a large master bedroom and with separate dressing area and fully equipped en-suite bathroom with separate shower. There are a further four double bedrooms and family bathroom completing the upper floor.
Rarely seen in house building today this property has a substantial half basement comprising of three good sized office spaces a gym and a WC. The construction of this substantial floor allows the four rooms to enjoy the benefit of natural daylight.
The grounds of the property have benefitted from a fairly recent and significant investment including large mono blocked driveway, low maintenance landscaping and attractive south facing patio area with private and sunny aspects.
The property is also equipped with a sophisticated CCTV security system, quality sound system with
localised volume controls that allows you to enjoy hi-fi music in many areas of the home, two insurance company approved safes as well of course, quality double glazing and gas central heating. When the property was constructed, genuine welsh slate was sourced for the roof enhancing it’s appearance, rather than opting for less expensive conventional tiles.
This is a home that offers you the benefits of modern, low maintenance construction with a certain attractive period look and it’s flexible layout is well suited to adapting to the work/life balance of the modern professional family, and is well worth viewing.
