This beautiful house in Old Polmont has much more to offer than you could ever know by just looking at it from the street.
Edinample, a traditional detached cottage, built over 200 years ago, is in just the right semi-rural location to give its owners privacy and an abundance of space.
Originally, this four-bedroom spacious property was five individual farm cottages.
Now three of them form the main house, which is large enough to get lost in, one is large garage with electric doors and the fifth has the potential to be holiday let or granny flat.
Pat Ballantine loves her home, but, after 40 years, she thinks the property should once again have a young family to take care of.
She said: “It definitely needs the noise of children in it once again.
“I think it would really suit someone looking for a bit more of an independent lifestyle; there’s so much space around this house and lovely gardens.
“Inside it’s also very adaptable.
“This is one of the lovely things about it – it’s not like a new build in that respect, it’s a very flexible home.
“But I think one of the most important things to say about the house is that it has to be viewed properly. You can’t get an idea of what it’s like just by looking at the outside.
“You really have to see it and feel the warmth.
“The spare cottage could be used as a granny flat, so it’s like a buy one get one free!”
Over the years, Edinample’s owners kept this home up-to-date in an ongoing project of refurbishing the bathrooms, bedrooms and kitchen.
But it’s been a labour of love, and the house is still in great condition, with a modernised kitchen, bright and cheery sitting rooms and fantastic conservatory which measures over 21 feet.
