Let there be light ...

There’s a few reasons why this five-bedroom Falkirk house looks so good.

It could be the fact that it is just five years old or that is it flooded with natural light thanks to its large and Velux windows.

But it’s also due to the care, love and attention bestowed on it by current owners, Grant and Kirsty Cook.

When they bought this property five years ago, they loved the views from the third floor.

But, as well as that view improving with the addition of the Kelpies, the inside reflects their style and is now fresh, modern and immaculate.

The couple say that this could be due to Kirsty’s interest in interior design as a hobby, and Grant’s slight OCD!

Grant said: “When we first bought it, we loved the fact it had five bedrooms and was set over three floors.

“All we did was add the decoration that we wanted; it’s brand new so that was all it needed.

“We’re happy with how it looks now.

“It’s modern and minimalistic at the same time.

“Kirsty was studying interior design and now has a degree so she put a lot into it, and we can’t forget my OCD!”

The layout of this property in McGowan Road is ideal for family life.

The top floor boasts two bedrooms and an en suite while the second floor holds three double bedrooms and the main bathroom.

Downstairs is the attractive lounge with bay window, the bright open plan kitchen/dining/utility and outside there’s a private garden and single garage.

Grant added: “I find the location very good.

“It’s five minutes to the Kelpies, five minutes to the stadium, five minutes from the town centre and the train station.

“It’s also a very bright house.

“The Velux windows on the roof send the light right down through the stairs and the whole house.”

One of the highlights of this house is what’s down below.

For the floors on the ground floor, the couple chose Japanese walnut which complements the clean white decor and crisp look.

The clever use of the French doors, mirrors and furniture also allow the light to bounce around the house, adding to its appeal.

Grant added: “We’ll be very sad to leave this house, and we’re purely doing it to be closer to family and Zak’s nursery. If we could lift it up and put it down in Polmont, that’s what we’d do.”
