A stylish country steading

This beautifully restored 19th century stone barn conversion is located within a charming steading development on the outskirts of Linlithgow.

The refurbishment has ensured that its unique historical architecture blends with contemporary functionality, ensuring a modern and comfortable yet characterful home surrounded by rolling countryside.

From a lovely cobbled courtyard, you enter the home through a spacious tiled vestibule into a central hallway around which all of the ground floor accommodation is arranged.

There is an open plan arrangement from the central hallway into the lounge, which is a spectacular space with its high vaulted ceiling, and a wall of floor to ceiling windows. These not only allow the light to flood in to the space but offer views over the west-facing garden. Original wood beams and an exposed stone wall are notable design elements, while a working wood burning stove with granite and tiled hearth adds to the warmth and charm. A minstrels’ gallery with carved wood balustrade provides a perfect space in the corner of this stunning lounge for entertaining.  There is plenty of space for a large, formal dining table and an attractive outlook over the south facing garden.

The hallway also leads to a large and bright dining kitchen which is fitted with a range of country style pine base and wall mounted units, and has space for a large dining table and dresser.  Included in the sale are the integrated electric oven and hob and dishwasher.

The utility room is accessed through a further hallway off the kitchen which has two deep storage cupboards and provides access to the garden. The utility room is fitted with a range of base units with stainless steel sink and is plumbed for a washing machine and drier, and there is access from here to the garage.  A double bedroom is situated quietly at the end of the main hallway on the ground floor and a set of French doors provides access to the garden while bringing an abundance of light into this room.

Also on the ground floor is a substantial storage cupboard, a WC with neutral two piece suite and an elegantly presented study which looks out over the front courtyard.

A carpeted stairwell leads to the upstairs landing which provides further storage and a wonderful outlook over open countryside towards Linlithgow Palace.  On this upper floor are four further spacious double bedrooms, all which feature their own built-in wardrobes and have stunning views over the gardens towards the surrounding countryside. The master bedroom has a large en suite bathroom with neutral three piece suite.  The other bedrooms can utilise the family bathroom with three piece suite.

This home is surrounded by private enclosed gardens with the rear door of the property leading to the drying green and functional area.  The sweeping garden to the south and west features a large terrace next to the lounge and with open views towards Cockelroi Hill. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with a selection of mature shrubs and trees and a garden shed provides useful outside storage.  Access is available through wooden gates at either end of this garden.
