Falkirk villa has space to grow

Lynette Cobain is in no doubt about what she will miss most when she says goodbye to this large, spacious villa.

“I love my kitchen!” she says, admitting she will find it hard to find one to compare when she moves.

There’s no doubt that the open plan area, which incorporates the kitchen itself and a dining area is the star attraction of this house.

It leads seamlessly, via tri-fold doors, into a bright and airy conservatory which makes the most of its south facing location.

Quartz worktops and kitchen island and integrated appliances add a luxurious finish to the room.

“We live in this area, really,” said Lynette, of the kitchen-family room. “We very rarely use our lounge.

“Because the conservatory is south facing, it is very sunny and bright and airy. It’s a lovely space.”

The fact that it leads out into the garden is a real bonus for Lynette, her husband Fraser and their toddler.

“The garden is very low maintenance – we have a lawn, and a patio area.

“The house is on a corner plot, so it is not overlooked by anyone else and it is nice and private.”

There is also a handy porch, which is good for kicking off boots and great for keeping a pram in.

At the same time as the kitchen was upgraded, the master bedroom’s ensuite was also refurbished.

It is one of two ensuites to be found in the four large bedrooms upstairs.

There is another versatile room on the ground floor which could be used as a small bedroom but which Lynette uses as a therapy room for sports massage. It and the front lounge both boast bay windows.

The couple have also added solid wood flooring throughout the house, to add a stylish finishing touch.

The other thing about the house which the family will miss when they move to be closer to Lynette’s mother, is their close proximity to the beautiful Callendar Park.

The family have actually lived in the estate – which occupies the site of the old Graeme High – since the homes were built in 2003. They moved to the larger house in 2006.

“Having a two-year-old, we are in the park nearly every dry day,” she said.

“I also really like the fact that we are so handy for the town. You can just walk into town for a coffee or to meet friends.

“You can even walk to the railway station if you’re heading for Glasgow and Edinburgh – and it’s also pretty convenient for the motorway if you are commuting.”
