A higher standard a design for life
Located on a small private estate on the edge of the conservation village of Torphichen, 1 Craigpark is an immaculate, individually designed 4-bedroom home set high on a hill and with panoramic views of the Pentlands and the Ochils; Ben Lomond can be seen on a clear day. The hexagonal design of the house makes the most of its location, blending in with its sylvan setting and maximising the perspective across the beautiful West Lothian landscape. It is secluded and peaceful here.
Set in beautiful countryside of wooded hills and gently rolling fields, Torphichen is less than 5 miles from Linlithgow and is just a short drive away from the M9 and M8 motorways, making it a wonderfully relaxing retreat from the hustle of city life while providing easy access to it too. Edinburgh is about 23 miles away, and Glasgow is 31 miles away on the M8.
Domestic comfort and versatility
The house combines designer chic with comfort and practicality. That style is apparent as you cross the threshold of the bright main entrance and walk into the elegant tiled hall. It leads off to a split level kitchen/dining and family room. Like all the rooms here, it is a bright, open space that lends itself to all manner of uses. French doors lead out onto a patio that wraps around the back of the house, and the views are out into the attractive and mature garden, which surrounds the entire property. A multi-fuel stove, set in a period fireplace, completes the feeling of domestic contentment in this wonderful room.
Privacy and practicality
There is plenty of private space downstairs too, there are two large en suite double bedrooms, a generous single bedroom and a single bedroom/study. All of the rooms make the most of the location and views.
The downstairs also contains a large, neutrally decorated and tiled family bathroom and a utility room that leads out into the garden at the side of the house while also providing indoor access to the large, integral garage and workshop area, which is about 55m2. This is a hugely adaptable part of the house as it has been constructed to the same standard as the living accommodation. The walls are double-skinned and all gas/electrical/water services have been carried through from the main part of the house. It means that this part of the house could be easily converted into further living space. It could even be a granny annexe or a home business unit and office. Externally, there is a further 1.5 tandem garage.
The mono-blocked driveway leading up to the house, and the parking in front and at the side of the house, is ample: there is room here for a fleet of vehicles.
A house with dramatic perspective
Going back into the hallway and up the large open-tread wooden staircase you find yourself in a large hexagonal formal living room that opens out through sliding double doors to a large balcony with breathtaking and panoramic views of the heart of Scotland. The only sounds here are of the natural world the wind in the trees and the sound of birdsong. The south-facing balcony is the perfect place to contemplate life, to start the day over a leisurely breakfast, to enjoy the breeze on a warm summer afternoon or to be together with friends and family for an alfresco dinner on a warm evening.
Well built and well serviced
This is not just an enjoyable and aesthetically pleasing house: it is also a highly practical one. All exterior walls have been built with 125 mm thermalite block and have cavity wall and underfloor insulation all backed up by a new 36 KW boiler that was installed in May 2015.
All amenities and advantages
Rail connections are first-class. Bathgate, Armadale and Linlithgow are a short car journey away, and Polmont and Falkirk provide further connections. Torphichen is well placed for national and international air travel too: Edinburgh International Airport is less than 20 miles away via the M9 and Glasgow International Airport is a short trip way on the M8. There are local bus services to Bathgate and Linlithgow.
The house is in the catchment area for Linlithgow Academy; other schools are Bathgate Academy and the local primary school, Torphichen Primary School.
