Opening up Larbert hoime to give some space

For the owner of this house, it’s all about the space.

This property in Larbert’s Galbraith Crescent is a fantastic example of how an open-plan feel can transform any home.

Built in 2008, it’s just over 3000 sq ft and invites all the family to use all the space it has available.

Owner Gary Dale said: “From the entrance hall through to the huge family room with its floor to ceiling windows and open gallery above, it gives a great feeling of openness but there’s also a real homely side to it.

“I love the staircase and upstairs landing with its gallery looking on to the family room. It’s a house that, irrespective of where you are in it, you are always aware of where everyone else is, which I really liked.

“The location of the house was also key for me and its central, south-facing plot means the garden is always in use.”

The most striking aspect is undoubtedly the kitchen and family area with the gallery landing above.

Other notable features include the staircase, four spacious bedrooms and 27-foot sitting room.

Gary added: “I don’t like houses with rooms for rooms’ sake. Here we have high ceilings and large rooms with big windows to make best use of the space available, allowing the house to seem even bigger.

“I used the same interior designer as Cala or the window dressings and light fittings throughout the house which, while very expensive, has made a difference.

Gary added: “The house is in perfect, move-in condition. I’ll be sad to sell it.”

The property at Galbraith Crescent in Larbert is on the market with Clyde Property at offers over £355,000. For more information, call (01324) 881777.
