Overlooking the town of Bathgate, and its scenic rural surroundings, this semi-detached house presents an exceptionally generous, contemporary-style family home. Set over three floors, and incorporating a flexible arrangement of rooms, the house is finished in excellent decorative order throughout.
Welcoming you into the family home is a practical vestibule flowing through to an inviting hall (with hidden storage), where the hardwood flooring offers the first flavour of the stylish interiors to follow.
Offering scope for a variety of furniture configurations, the wonderfully light and airy living room (which could be used as an open-plan living and dining room) boasts tasteful muted décor accompanied by handsome ceiling coving, resilient timber flooring and a chic, wallmounted gas fire. Neighbouring the living room is a further substantial reception area finished in a similarly understated style. Perfect for formal entertaining and dining, this generous room opens directly onto a decked terrace.
Also accessed from the living room is an ultra-sleek contemporary kitchen featuring glossy, flat-panel fitted cabinets, complemented by sparkling black granite worktops.
