Our Seller Says:
"When we purchased the house 40 years ago, we could see the potential and versatility of both the house and garden. We have loved staying here; it's a quiet street close to all amenities. The house was flexible for our growing family but now there are two of us again, unfortunately it's now time to downsize. The quiet street, size, space and versatility suited us perfectly and we are sorry to be leaving this family home and moving on."
The property is ideally situated within easy walking distance of local shops, The Livingston Inn, Almond Valley Heritage Centre and various commuter links, with surrounding parks and walking trails offering peaceful family walks just a stone's throw away. Tucked away behind a private hedge, the charismatic stone built-property is approached by a lengthy driveway to the side of the home which leads down to a large garage, providing parking for several vehicles and various storage options.
Upon entering the home, you are greeted by the entrance vestibule with tiled flooring, which opens into an expansive hallway giving access to accommodation. To the right, lies a tastefully presented lounge which is elevated by a deep set traditional window and a delightfully cosy fireplace with glossy tiled hearth and an oak surround, inviting quality family time.
The second reception room is located farther down the hall, which is flanked by two bright window aspects and decorated in neutral hues. Currently set up as a quiet sitting room, this space offers excellent flexibility in use as a formal dining room and also contains useful built-in storage housing the boiler. This in turn opens into country kitchen/diner which has been arranged to showcase a selection of oak base and wall cabinetry, with the modern convenience of a large Range cooker, integrated washing machine and dishwasher and space for a fridge/freezer. The flagstone effect vinyl flooring and dining area with garden window views add to the warm and welcoming feel of the room.
The ground bedrooms comprise of a comfortable single and two spacious doubles presented in light tones and fitted carpet, with one bedroom benefitting from ample wardrobe storage. Perfect for larger families, there are two separate 3 piece shower rooms lying adjacent to one another, one of which was fitted in recent years and is immaculately tiled to the walls and floor.
Continuing upstairs, the open landing is cleverly utilised as a home office space. The two double bedrooms here are filled with natural light from the bright Velux windows and feature great floor space for bedroom furnishings and built-in storage.
Outside, the immense wraparound gardens are large enough to offer an array of areas to be enjoyed by all members of the family. Mainly laid to manicured lawn that is fringed by a wide display of established trees, shrubs and colourful plants, perfect for keen gardeners and where you may spot various local wildlife. There are numerous spots for alfresco dining with friends on a sunny day, and more than private enough to form a quiet sanctuary to sit back and unwind.
It is worth noting the granted planning permission is for a two storey 4 bedroom home and detached garage. More details can be requested or found on the West Lothian Planning Permission website using Planning permission reference: 0146/FUL/22
