Love at first sight at Whitecross home

Located a mere stone’s throw from the town of Linlithgow, Haining Valley Steading conversion is something rarely found - a countryside property, close to all main rail and road networks, and a quality conversion sympathetic to its location.

Offering spacious accommodation over two floors, this design-led property has been upgraded by its current owner and is presented to an exacting standard throughout with oak finishes and quality extras included.

The property blends the old with the new

It is ideally situated for access to Edinburgh, Glasgow and the Central Belt. For leisure pursuits, the Union Canal is a short stroll away as is Muiravonside Country Park.

This four-bedroomed, stone built property enjoys a courtyard setting and is one of seven houses within this steading conversion.

Owned by Janice Irvine for the past 12 years, she had been looking for somewhere more local to her employment at the time.

She fell in love with it the day she viewed it, and bought it that same date.

Janice said: “There are many advantages to living here. Firstly there’s the peace and solitude of the countryside, living in a property which retains all it’s older architectural qualities but allows for modern interior living spaces - it’s as perfect a home as it can be.”

The reception hall has ample space for freestanding furniture, engineered oak flooring with underfloor heating and a carpeted solid oak staircase to the galleried landing and upper floor.

The sitting room is a stunning, well-proportioned room affording plenty of natural light with twin windows to the courtyard to the front and twin windows overlooking the rear garden towards open countryside. The multi-fuel stove is an added feature to the room.

The galleried landing gives access to all three upper bedrooms and a family sized bathroom.

The property boasts a well-tended, landscaped garden to the rear with a large patio area and barbeque. To one side, there is a split level deck with pergola with a further expansive balustraded deck to the rear of the garden, floodlit from below and with views over the stream and open farmland. The three wood stores, potting shed and the tool shed are included in the sale.

There is a designated parking space within the communal parking area and a further private parking space adjacent to the property.

“I’ll be extremely sad to leave here, but I want to downsize as I head towards retirement,” said Janice.

The property at 2 Haining Valley Steading, Whitecross, is on the market with Peterkin & Kidd at offers over £370,000
