The self-build home offers space and privacy
The self-build home offers space and privacy

This self-built house makes a statement from the moment the electronic gates swing open to reveal its spectacular driveway.

It could easily accommodate 20 cars, so if you’re ever planning a large party, feel free.

Inside, too, there’s no shortage of space – even when you’re entertaining in large numbers.

And with an acre of land, you won’t be bothering anyone if you make a lot of noise.

Current owner Michael Block and his family have lived happily in the house that he built himself 25 years ago.

He likes the area so much, he’ll be moving to a new house next door, but he has been careful to design both with space and privacy in mind.

Michael said Torwood was an area perfect for work and leisure.

It feels like a countryside location but the towns of Falkirk and Stirling are each a ten-minute drive away; the motorway is close; schools are handy; and a golf course is nearby too.

The attractions of the house include a huge kitchen with a good-sized utility room, separate dining room and fabulous conservatory.

There is also a large living room and all of the public ‘living’ space has been carefully created at the back of the house for maximum privacy.

In fact, all of the rooms are big, including all five bedrooms, four of which are en-suite, while the fifth is right beside the luxurious family bathroom.

There is also an office that could be a sixth bedroom if required.

All in all, it’s an excellent family home, with a large garden, beautiful lawn and attractive shrubs as well as a patio and decking area, double garage and single detached garage.
