Had the owner of this impressive ground floor property not been fortunate enough to secure the purchase of an equally comfortable home nearby, 4 Booth Place in Falkirk would not be on the market at all.
After 28 years she is rather reluctantly giving up her “lovely home” to move elsewhere, giving someone else a rare opportunity to own a spacious house in a sought-after area just off a busy town centre, close to lots of shops and restaurants.
This late Victorian semi-detached villa completed around 1878 and finished in attractive sandstone boasts stunning period features including fine plasterwork cornice, panelled doors and original woodwork and is in such an excellent condition the new owners will find it easy just to move straight in and start unpacking.
The overall size, layout and character of this property has instant appeal. It has a warm and welcoming feel, but the sheer scale of the rooms also offers plenty of scope for any changes, additions or subtle alterations the new occupiers may wish to make.
Sturdy twin timber storm doors protect the entrance vestibule and open on to a welcoming reception area which extends over 25 feet. Leading off the hallway there is a sitting room with keynote fireplace and bay window and three double bedrooms. The separate dining room is also a versatile area which could be easily adapted to become another living room or bedroom if required.
At the back of the house is a shower room with ceramic tiling, separate bathroom and a dining-sized kitchen with access to a small but easily maintained garden which again offers plenty of potential for a makeover.
The property at 4 Booth Place, Falkirk, featured in the current edition of The Falkirk Herald, is on the market with Clyde Property, Falkirk, at offers over £175,000. For more information call (01324) 881777
