If a luxurious interior is top of your homely needs then look no further than number 10 in Falkirk’s Albert Road.

Situated in one of the most sought-after areas in the heart of the town this professionally extended detached villa is full of traditional charm and modernity.

From an imported Italian marble kitchen in an open plan family space and integrated surround sound speakers to Victorian cornicing, a stained glass window and servant bells, the attractive sandstone house with the double bay front fuses the centuries together with ease.

Owner Julie McGillivray, who has stayed there for the past 11 years with her family, said: “The best thing I love about the house is that you can bring the outside in through the French doors looking out into the garden.

“It’s amazing looking out watching any weather from snow to wind storms, and I can do the ironing on the patio using the outside sockets when my five-year-old son is on the trampoline.

“It’s really great for open plan family living.”

The 120-year-old house now boasts four bedrooms - one double downstairs and en suite in the master, a study, utility room, a lounge and a family room with open plan access to the impressive kitchen.

There are also three loft spaces and cupboards in every room offering inhabitants masses of storage room.

The sizeable, south facing garden offers provides privacy and a brilliant space to entertain family and friends over a barbie when the weather is good.

Julie added: “The location is perfect as well. We won’t be moving away from the Comely Park catchment area.”
