Mount Villa stands in beautiful terraced gardens on one of the main approaches into Bathgate. The high build quality of this 1950s 4 bedroom detached villa is enhanced further by the characterful cottage-vibe décor throughout, whilst the large garden and out buildings are a dream for lovers of garden and workshop spaces. The location is equally enviable. Bathgate train station is within walking distance of the property, as are all the facilities of the thriving town centre including traditional high streets with some excellent restaurants and independent shops. Bathgate sits between the M8 and the M9, so by either road or rail the cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh are within easy reach for commuting and all the opportunities of the cities and the natural beauty of central Scotland beyond.
EPC Rating - Band D
Double width solid oak front doors open to the entrance porch, paved with terracotta tiles. Along with the original Douglas fir floorboards throughout most of the ground floor, these warm-toned natural finishes give Mount Villa its cosy, cottage vibe, whilst the wide entrance hints at the surprisingly roomy accommodation within. The large central lobby benefits from the light coming through the glazed inner double entrance doors, and gives access to all of the ground floor rooms. There are spacious built-in storage cupboards either side of the door which, along with plenty of other storage spaces throughout, neatly absorb the paraphernalia of life and allow the picturesque character and quality of the home to be fully enjoyed.
The lounge and separate dining room are both at the front of the house on either side of the entrance. Facing south into the front garden, each room has characterful detail such as arched alcoves, deep cornices, high ceilings and sash and case windows. The focal point of the lounge is the wood-burning stove for the inimitable cosiness of the natural flame to while away an evening, and in the dining room a gas fire has been fitted. These large public rooms, along with the roomy hallway and large, quality-fitted family bathroom, make for plenty of space for family gatherings. The period characteristics are wonderfully blended with some practical modern touches such as the power outlets with integrated USB charge points that have been added throughout.The kitchen features a wide alcove typical of country kitchens, and houses an integrated Neff oven. There is space for a breakfast table, and plenty of work top area. The original coal shed adjoining the kitchen has been converted into a practical laundry/back kitchen, and gives access to the garden.
The outlook from every window is the beautiful garden which surrounds the house; the only buildings visible from indoors are the property's own outbuildings, themselves tastefully designed and framed by mature trees. Outbuildings include the original double-story garage (nicknamed The Catherdral by the current owners) which has an electric door, and a workshop on the lower level. A large workshop has been added in recent years, which has vehicular access, and has everything you need for any number of DIY or professional projects. There is also a beautiful timber garden studio which is insulated and heated. A wonderfully creative environment, it is currently used as an artisan craft workshop, and could equally be an office or garden room.
The large rear garden is a gardener's delight. The gentle slop of the land means it catches the sun most of the day, and the top of the plot has been designed to give a flat area with vehicular access from the road. There are two gateways into the property from the road, with off-street parking space for several vehicles. Mature shrubs, bushes, fruit trees, a berry patch, greenhouse and a couple of log stores all find their place in the rear garden. The front garden consists of a flat lawn area and is surrounded by trees and shrubs which screen the house. Elevated from the road at the front and nestled in its grounds, Mount Villa is a fully secluded haven.
The four bedrooms at Mount Villa offer very flexible accommodation options. There are two double bedrooms on the ground floor, and a double bedroom and a single bedroom upstairs. Head upstairs via the open timber stairway from the dining room, where the loft conversion is an attractive, light-filled and versatile space. Take over the whole floor for a luxury private master suite retreat, with double bedroom, dressing room or study, lots of storage and a bathroom. Or keep it as a wonderful guest suite to accommodate visiting family; or it's a perfect teenager zone. The double bedroom, single bedroom and bathroom offer plenty of options, and however you choose to use it, the upstairs is an extremely attractive area where the slope of the roof makes for interesting shapes and the amenity of every space is maximised with bespoke joinery. The Velux windows are fitted with blackout blinds and the flooring is practical laminate board.
