Property description



Forming part of an exclusive conversion of 1890 Stone Barns nestled in West Lothian countryside, The Carthouse has been designed to preserve the historic integrity of this Scottish vernacular building, whilst creating a modern family home.

Situated near the conservation village of Torphichen and just a short drive from the M8/M9 motorway network, Wallhouse Farm Steading is approached along a quiet b-road. Positioned behind a large private garden, the semi-detached house instantly endears with its rustic façade. From here you step into the kitchen/dining room, which is flooded with natural light from dual-aspect windows, including wide patio doors set into the original cart house archways. In the corner the gleaming gloss-white kitchen is topped with marbled granite, and is replete with a full range of integrated appliances. Soft cream carpet marks the transition into the living room, which is characterised by its magnificent double-height ceiling and glass-balustrade mezzanine. Doors from both the living room and the kitchen lead into an inner hall, which accommodates a generous double bedroom, a three-piece bathroom and a fully fitted utility room. An oak staircase ascends to the mezzanine landing, which features a master bedroom with built-in wardrobes and a dressing area, as well as an en-suite shower room. Also on this level are two bright and spacious double bedrooms, and the three-piece shower room. The property benefits from gas central heating and electric underfloor heating in all three bathrooms, as well as comprehensive sips wall/roof insulation and double glazing throughout.

Nestled in the rolling Torphichen Hills in West Lothian’s countryside, the immediate area offers a secluded atmosphere with the charming village catering for all your basic needs. The village has an excellent primary school and falls within the catchment of reputable Linlithgow Academy. There is a handy Post Office and shop, an Inn with a bar and restaurant and a village church. For more extensive amenities, the town of Linlithgow is only three miles away. For sport and fitness enthusiasts, Xcite Linlithgow leisure centre offers fantastic facilities, or for those who prefer the great outdoors, Linlithgow Loch provides walking, fishing, wildlife watching and water sports. Linlithgow is served by an excellent range of schools, as well as Donaldson’s School – Scotland’s national school for children who are deaf or have communication difficulties. Linlithgow allows swift and easy access across the central belt and northwards into Fife, and is also served by excellent bus and rail services.
