Property Details

Nestled in the heart of Livingston Village, The Danders is a truly unique family home offering generous accommodation whilst retaining all the charming features of the historic cottages it incorporates. Since five 18th century farm cottages were converted to create this delightful home around 50 years ago, only two families have been fortunate enough to own it. With a seemingly endless capacity for welcoming friends within its quirky walls, it has seen many large gatherings as well as proving a cosy retreat. The Danders sits peacefully in a conservation area on a no-through road lined with cottages. It offers everything you would expect from friendly village life in a well-connected world. The nearby town of Livingston has excellent retail and entertainment facilities, and with two railway stations and a motorway junction, it's perfect for quick access to Edinburgh, Glasgow and beyond.


An entrance lobby with warm-tinted floor tiles, and a handy ground floor WC, gives access straight into the kitchen, an inviting sanctuary that is always filled with light - and people. A quintessential cottage kitchen, it's large enough for a huge free-standing central table; many a problem has melted away over food and conversation here. The units and walls are painted in classic grey tones and a Rangemaster stove sits beneath the chimney breast. Stepping into the living room, a large feature fireplace and chimney breast form a stunning focal point, with the inimitable cosy warmth of wood burning stove. Masterful interior design enhances the beautifully quirky character of this room, making use of every nook and feature.Throughout the cottage, original features have been lovingly incorporated and echoed with sympathetic décor choices, such as engineered oak floor in the living room and the rustic charm of the panelled natural wood doors. A short passage leads to the stairway and another generously sized room downstairs, currently used as a TV snug.

Even when the house is full there are places for everyone to relax, either together in the large rooms or in their own favourite nook. The space is flexible - the TV snug has in the past been used as a teen room, a dining room and a spare bedroom, and there are plenty of storage options for all the accessories of family life.

Soft carpet covers the stone stairs which lead up to the bedrooms. The simple iron balustrade is the original, unmoved for nearly 300 years.The bedrooms each enjoy total privacy. Two double bedrooms are at opposite ends of a passage which runs the length of the cottage - ideal teen rooms. One of them incorporates a small room with its own quaint window for a walk-in wardrobe or study nook. The second double bedroom has a window seat overlooking the village square and into the branches of the village Christmas tree bringing its twinkling magic through the window every December.A couple of steps lead to the master bedroom suite. This is a luxurious retreat which enjoys a peaceful view through the tops of mature trees to the old manse house beyond. It features built-in wardrobes and a deluxe en-suite bathroom with large shower.A practical storage cupboard and a family bathroom with its elegant free-standing bath complete the upstairs accommodation.

With a characterful reclaimed brick wall, The Danders' south-facing garden is an inviting suntrap at any time of the day. Deceptively large, it is low maintenance with lawn, borders and a paved dining area. The garage has power outlets, and the double driveway and ample parking for visitors on the quiet side road.
