Space, inside and out, on this farm ...

The peaceful, rural location - surrounded by open countryside - is just one of the appealing things about this property.

Part of a courtyard development, Binniehill Farm, near Slamannan, offers the best of both worlds - peace, tranquility and some pretty stunning views, while being only a short drive to Falkirk and Cumbernauld.

Owner Brian Scott says its “brilliant for people with dogs or horses” with fabulous paths and plenty of places to walk, with very little traffic.

It is, he says, a friendly, peaceful neighbourhood and he is reluctant to move but the family is looking for somewhere with a fourth bedroom.

“Because it’s part of the courtyard development, we can’t extend, although we’d love to stay here,” he said.

“The location is ideal - it’s very rural.

“The bottom floor of the house is very open plan and that’s great for a family.

“We’ve been looking at four-bedroom houses but we’ve found it hard to get anything that feels as spacious as this house, because of the open plan and the fact that the rooms are very large.’’

The flexible accommodation consists of entrance vestibule with two piece WC just off, a sizeable lounge, fabulous dining kitchen with family area, three generously proportioned double bedrooms.

The master bedroom is en-suite and there is also a three-piece family bathroom.

Other practical features include oil-fired central heating and double glazing.

There are gardens to the rear with timber decking. It gets the sun well into the afternoon and is an ideal safe space for young children to play.

There is also a double garage to the side and ample residents’ parking.
