One of the benefits of having a house-builder in the family is that you can have a say in creating your ideal home.
Gary Fraser, director at Aspire Joinery, built this home in 2008 for brother Simon and his family.
But, since then, the Fraser family are not the only ones who have enjoyed living in this five-bedroom detached in a leafy spot in Larbert.
Gary said: “It was built with the family in mind.
“It’s a highly insulated, solidly built home.
“It has five bathrooms in all, including three en suites.
“My brother and his family moved to Australia after two years here, and since then we’ve had some really nice families renting it out.”
The feeling of space is instant, with a large, airy reception hall big enough to house its own pool table.
The roomy feel continues through the rest of the ground floor, with a generous lounge, spacious kitchen and a very roomy downstairs toilet.
Up the oak stairway, the bedrooms all have fitted wardrobes, and the master suite boasts its own dressing room.
The third attic level also provides a flexible space to make your own.
Gary added: “With this house you get modern, high-efficiency living but it’s set in the middle of an existing street, surrounded by mature trees.
“In my opinion, the location is perfect.
“It’s off the main road, so you don’t hear any traffic.
“There’s also great motorways links.
“You are very close to the motorway so it’s great for commuters.”
The property in Stirling Road, Larbert, is on the market with McEwan Fraser at offers over £305,000. For more information, contact 0131 524 9797.
