Positioned with unobstructed views of the ancient stone bridge, green fields and woodland as far as the eye can see, this five-bedroom modern detached villa promises a stunning family home that is truly befitting of its idyllic setting.
The luxury property forms part of the exclusive Ballencrieff Mill development in Bathgate, and benefits from a single garage, a double driveway and extensive private gardens. The south-facing villa instantly endears with its traditional-style façade and welcoming porch, which flows into a spacious hall. Directly on the right is a versatile study, followed by a convenient WC and a generous walk-in cloak cupboard. On the left a glazed door opens into the vast living room,which is flooded with light from a south-facing bay window.
Accessible from both the living room and directly from the hall is the busy hub of the home: the large dining kitchen. The contemporary fitted kitchen features a convivial breakfast peninsula with bar seating, and provides a wealth of hidden storage and workspace. Integrated appliances include a four burner gas hob with an extractor hood, an electric single oven and a fridge; this leaves room for additional freestanding appliances.
The separate utility room adjacent offers additional fitted storage and laundry facilities, plus a walk-in store and a side door to the garden. Just off the dining kitchen are two versatile reception rooms: the formal dining room and the dual-aspect conservatory, both of which enjoy direct access to the garden.
Upstairs, the light and airy landing accommodates four impressive double bedrooms with built-in wardrobes, plus a sleek four-piece family bathroom with a Jacuzzi bath. At the end of the first-floor landing is the lavish master suite, which comprises a sunny en-suite shower room to the front; a central dressing room with matching wardrobes, drawers and a dressing table (to be included in the sale); and a dual-aspect bedroom with a private balcony to the rear. Perfect for morning coffee, the east-facing balcony enjoys magnificent views as far as the eye can see. Gas central heating powered by a brand new combi boiler (installed in August 2017) and double glazing ensure optimum comfort and efficiency all year round.
The villa sits behind a south-facing front lawn and a double driveway to supplement the single garage, which is equipped with lighting and power sockets. The extensive rear garden stretches down to the water’s edge, and is afforded exceptional privacy and seclusion by tall fencing on either side and dense foliage on the opposite bank.
In addition to the sprawling manicured lawn, the garden features a neat patio and a raised deck which receives sun for most of the day, and overlooks the old mill burn and stone bridge.
