Grand country estate living - in a prime location
One of four properties that form part of the Rivaldsgreen House, an imposing late Regency country estate house dating back to the late 18th century, 48C Friars Brae is a grade C listed building and is your chance to live a unique lifestyle in one of the best locations in Linlithgow.
EPC Band - E
There is an atmosphere of timeless, peaceful seclusion on this 2.5 acre estate, and yet the house is only a short walk down to Linlithgow high street and the mainline train station with its frequent service links to Edinburgh (c. 20 minutes) and Glasgow (c. 30 minutes), and it is only a mile or so from the M9/M8 motorway network. Edinburgh International Airport is within easy reach (12 miles) via the M9. The house is within the catchment area of Linlithgow Academy, and the local primary school is just a short walk away and can be reached without having to cross any roads.
A safe place for the future
Bordered by a high stone wall, which leads down to the Union Canal, the house is accessed via a high stone pillar gateway that opens out on to a long, broad and winding tarmac driveway, flanked by tall lime and chestnut trees. The feeling is one of stepping back in time to a period of gracious country living, free from the cares of the modern world. The house and grounds are set in a conservation area, which means that quality of life here is truly safeguarded and guaranteed for the future.
A place of enchantment and adventure
To the right of the driveway is a large open area with copses of trees and shrubs leading down to the canal and has wonderful, panoramic views across Linlithgow and the countryside beyond the town. It's a wonderful location in which to grow up, but it's equally enchanting for adults. A highly adaptable outdoor social space which has been used for everything from weddings to summer parties all set against a bucolic, sylvan backdrop. Such possibilities are all part of the charm and distinctiveness of living here.
Privacy and restfulness
The house itself is entered through a large private courtyard with a high iron gate. The enclosed and sunny courtyard is an ideal place for family gatherings and entertaining, as well as a space in which to relax over a coffee or breakfast before facing the day ahead. It's an equally relaxing place on a warm summer day or evening somewhere to enjoy the tranquillity and restfulness of this beautiful property and location.
Downstairs, the hallway leads to a family kitchen with a gas-fired Stanley range, which is perfect for cooking a slow roast while you walk into town - for a couple of drinks perhaps on a Sunday lunchtime. The stove also heats the downstairs very effectively, and without the need to turn on the gas central heating. The kitchen, with its two high sash windows looking out on to the quiet lane that runs down the side of the property, has the air of a country or manse kitchen.
A house with history and connection
On the other side of the hallway, you will find a large sitting room with space for family dining. Again, the high ceiling and ample floor space bear witness to the house's provenance as a large coach house. There's plenty of space here for multiple items of large furniture in this bright room that overlooks the courtyard through a multi-paned window.
All rooms with a view
Upstairs, you'll find three bedrooms, each with attractive views: one across to the front of the house and the impressive, sweeping driveway with its communal and private garden areas; one across to the courtyard; and one looking out to the lane and large, wooded gardens of neighbouring properties beyond.
An oasis of calm and relaxation
The house's private garden is your own haven. It works brilliantly with the other outdoor spaces. Mature shrubs and trees, which include a plum tree, combined with birdsong and the sound of the wind in the trees complete the restful picture.
Convenience and practicality
There is parking in the private driveway for up to three vehicle. A garden gate to the side of the property allows for pedestrian access to the lane. External storage includes a stone-built, former tack room off the courtyard, and a shed in the private garden
