The green grass of home in Larbert

If you are one of those people for whom the grass is always greener on the other side, this beautiful five-bedroomed house could be the answer to your problems.

The immaculate garden may seem like a haven for someone with green fingers, but take a closer look ... the artificial grass cleverly means it is about as low maintenance as a garden comes.

And yet, beautifully landscaped and full of interest, the lawn makes the most of the south east facing spot, which gets a lot of sun.

Lesley Anderson landscaped the garden to make the most of its sunny and private location.

“Although it is surrounded by other gardens, it doesn’t feel like that – it feels very private and we enjoy spending time out there.”

She also loves the fact that her sleek, monochrome open plan kitchen and living area opens through patio doors on to the large decking area.

“I love the large open plan room – it is always warm because there are so many windows and doors and it is really light and bright.

The huge kitchen – which has a utility room just off it, leading to the garage – flows seamlessly into an area with a dining room which in turn becomes a family lounge.

“It’s really sociable when people are round – they can sit on the sofa and chat to me while I’m cooking,” said Lesley.

Having lived in the house for the past four years, the family converted the garage into a games room, which holds a pool table, a large American fridge and a small bar.

“We kept the front doors of the garage so it doesn’t look like it has been converted, and that also means it can easily be turned back into a garage if that’s what people want,” said Lesley.

She admits that the family rarely use their formal sitting room, which overlooks the front of the house.

Upstairs, the bedrooms are all a good size, with three of them en-suite.

“The house also has really good storage,” Lesley said. “It is very good for a modern home.”

The luxurious master bedroom has an impressive en-suite area, which boasts double sinks.

Built in 2010, the house sits in the modern Kinnaird Village development by Cala Homes and, says Lesley, is a great place to bring up children.

“It is very handy for the local school – in fact, it is literally two minutes walk away.

“There are lots of children living nearby which is nice. It’s a great place for families with young children.”
