Set behind leafy planting, the house opens in a tiled hall housing a handy WC. Immediately on the left, you step in a living room, stretching the entire depth of the house with dual-aspect windows flooding the space with sunny natural light throughout the day. In addition to outstanding flexible space for comfortable seating, the room enjoys plush fitted carpeting and an exquisite period fireplace, reclaimed from Bathgate's former rail station and fitted with a living flame fire to create a cosy atmosphere in the colder months. The living room is adjoined by an equally sunny and spacious dining room boasting triple-aspect windows and plentiful room for an eight-seater table. Representing a perfect space for year-round entertaining, the dining room opens onto a decked dining terrace and the garden beyond. Also reached from the living room, as well as the hall, is a wonderfully bright, south-facing kitchen featuring a congenial breakfast bar, a sunroof, and a wide bay window framing a lovely garden vista. The room is stylishly-appointed with high-quality solid oak cabinetry, paired with durable stone worktops and striking wall tiling, whilst, next door, a coordinating utility room provides access to built-in storage, the garage, and the garden. Finally, on this level, is one of the five bedrooms on offer.
This wood-floored double bedroom is currently set up as a home study, demonstrating the versatility of the home. Upstairs, a light and airy galleried landing (with access to excellent cupboard storage and a further small study area) lead to the remaining four large double bedrooms, all perfectly-presented and carpeted. Three of the rooms are accompanied by incorporated storage, including the luxurious dual aspect master bedroom, which is heightened by double mirrored fitted wardrobes, French doors opening onto a balcony with a rural outlook, and an en-suite shower room. The sky-lit shower room incorporates a shower enclosure, a WC, and a basin set into a wealth of vanity storage. One further bedroom also benefits from the property's favourably sunny aspect, whilst an attractive family bathroom completes the first-floor accommodation. The classically-styled bathroom comes complete with a WC-suite and a bathtub with an overhead shower and a glazed screen. Gas central heating, with a brand-new boiler, and double glazing guarantee a warm, energy-efficient climate all year round. Externally, located to the rear of the property with a waterside setting, is a secluded south-facing garden, mainly laid to lawn and featuring historic stone walls. A patio (with secure external power) and a raised decked area provide delightful sunny spots for sitting, relaxing and taking in the home's leafy surroundings and tranquil sounds of the babbling stream. Providing private parking for several vehicles is a front driveway and an integral double garage.
