Property Details

Enjoying a prominent position close to the centre of the town, 'Craig Uisk' is an imposing Edwardian detached villa that offers significant potential to be a unique family home. Dating to the early 1900's the property displays a number of characteristics of the Arts & Crafts movement, including the use of stained glass windows throughout the property which was a very popular feature of the day. The central location is perfect for families, with a selection of schooling for all ages found in short walking distance, whilst major transport links are easily accessible nearby.


Occupying a plot at almost one third of an acre, the property offers substantial accommodation and garden grounds for all the family and provides flexible living arrangements depending on the incoming purchasers requirements. The property is ready made for use as a home business, with a section of the garden currently used for a storage yard and part of the property set up with a home office with its own private access door. A double garage is also available at the rear of the garden. The property features a varied history and at one point was the town's doctors surgery, with the original doctors appointment bell system still visible in the kitchen.


The present accommodation offers five generous bedrooms at first floor level with traditional, period features retained. On the ground floor are three reception rooms, with one of those utilised as a home office and work area. The further two reception rooms offer ample living and entertaining space and preserve the characteristics of the period. The spacious fitted kitchen includes a separate breakfasting area for everyday dining, with an adjacent utility room offering laundry facilities and good storage opportunities. The family bathroom has been upgraded in the current past, offering a four piece suite within a spacious room. A WC is also available on the lower level. A cellar is present within the property, accessed from the rear garden and offering a large storage area for a variety of needs. Further storage options can be found elsewhere within the property.


A particular highlight within the property should be the use of stained glass in various locations. However the window from the staircase out to the front of the property is an impressive vista that is often favoured by visitors to the property. The property benefits from gas central heating throughout, with the boiler renewed in 2017 and fitted in the cellar.


Externally the property enjoys vast garden grounds that offer huge potential for developing and landscaping. The long driveway allows ample offroad parking, with a detached two car garage found to the rear, alongside a brick outhouse. The present owner has used this area as a workyard and it would lend itself well to someone looking to run a trade from the premises. Similarly, the extensive garden grounds offer potential for building smaller dwellings within the perimeter subject to appropriate consents.


The traditional town of Whitburn boasts amenities catering for your everyday needs. There is a variety of shops and supermarkets, a health centre, a fitness centre with a swimming pool, a library and other reliable local services. The town boasts a good choice of schools from nursery to secondary level. A more comprehensive range of facilities can be found in nearby Bathgate and Livingston. The town is ideally located with easy access to Edinburgh and Glasgow via the M8 motorway and the nearby Armadale train station.
