Family life is always evolving, and 33 Ballencrieff Mill is a perfect example of a family home that will comfortably accommodate your lifestyle as your family's needs and interests change. Along with the varying demands of your careers, this home is where you balance it all.

Nestled on the side of a gentle hill as you leave the built-up area of Bathgate, you feel as though you're heading out into the countryside. In reality though Ballencrieff Mill is walking distance from Bathgate town centre with all its shops and leisure facilities, and the location has quick access to motorway and rail links across Central Scotland. The approach meanders past the stone buildings of the original, converted mill buildings which are part of this development, blending a touch of historic character with the stunning modern homes of this friendly community.

EPC Rating - Band B

Bright and spacious with endless possibilities, this home feels equally right whether full with family and friends, or quiet for some quality family time. The friendly community of Ballencrieff Mill is the perfect environment where neighbours look out for each other in this quiet, sought-after area of Bathgate.

Stepping through the entrance hall, you're invited to take a few paces along into the heart of the home – the kitchen and family room. This open plan area is truly the hub of this home. As practical as it is elegantly stylish, it sets the scene for the rest of the home and has been designed with an eye to helping busy family life run smoothly.

A central family breakfast bar in the kitchen is large enough for homework, party-scale food preparation, and holiday planning with the laptop. The wall is open through to the family room – where the current owners have positioned the TV so it can be seen from the kitchen breakfast table as well as from the family room sofas. With a freestanding range cooker, integrated appliances, plenty of bench space and storage, it is everything you would expect in a modern kitchen. The whole area is beautifully flooded with natural light from the south-facing windows, which look out over the secluded back garden and down to the paved patio outdoors dining area.

A more formal dining area is part of this open plan space, with double doors that lead into the spacious lounge room. Throw open the double doors to expand the space when the house is full; or close them for a separate lounge that can be configured in different ways. It's a truly versatile layout.

The home is beautifully balanced between comfortably spacious areas and cosy spaces. A smaller room accessed from the family room, originally designed as a bar then used as a playroom, is currently being used as a walk-in pantry - just one example of how well this house easily adapts to different lifestyle needs.

Retreat upstairs where the large landing area gives to access to the five bedrooms in a way that lends privacy to each area. Here too, the rooms are suitable for a variety of configurations. The master bedroom boasts a luxury ensuite and looks out towards the peaceful open space of the hillside visible beyond Ballencrieff Mill. Two bedrooms share a Jack and Jill ensuite, and two further bright, airy double bedrooms look out over the back garden to the mature tree line beyond. The beautiful free standing bath in the family bathroom is typical of the elegant décor throughout.

As you would expect, there are plenty of storage options thoughtfully incorporated throughout the house, which makes it easy to keep everything organised and out of the way – essential for family living. There is a dedicated home office on the ground floor and a practical utility room next to the kitchen, for the washing machine and dryer. This room also has access through into the garage and yet more storage space.
