In most houses, once you close the doors you leave the outside world behind ... but that’s not quite the case with this lovely family home.
The beautiful, tranquil location of this house allows the gentle sound of the River Carron, which flows past the garden, to filter indoors.
It’s something that owner Johnny Silver is reluctantly giving up when he leaves the detached, five-bedroomed villa in Stoneywood, near Denny.
“You can hear the river when you’re sitting in the living room and in many of the rooms throughout the house,” he said.
“It’s a very peaceful location and it’s a lovely house. I don’t want to sell it, it’s just that it is too big for me!”
The house, which the tattoo artist has lived in since it was built seven years ago, is deceptively big, built as it is on four levels.
On the lower level, overlooking the well-maintained garden and, yes, the river banks, is the lounge and dining room.
This spacious, bright area has patio doors that make the most of the gorgeous location.
Outside is a decked area that is a perfect place to enjoy the surroundings when weather permits.
The kitchen, also on this level, is a good size too, while other plus points include lots of space for parking and a garage.
Level three has two double bedrooms and a family bathroom while on the top floor is the master bedroom with en-suite shower room as well as a large single bedroom with walk-in storage area.
“The house is set out really well,” he said. “There are five bedrooms as it is, but you could easily turn one of them into an extra living room.”
The property in Old Mill Way in Stoneywood is on the market with Property Unlimited for the guide price of £189,500. For more information, contact (01324) 632474.
