Description

Dating from the late 19th century, this magnificent stone built property offers exceptionally spacious living over two floors and further benefits from an excellent situation on a large leafy plot with two garages – the total internal area of the property extends to some 2,150 sq. Ft. Located on the southern fringe of Bo’ness, the property is ideally located for easy access to the central motorway network and Edinburgh Airport.

As you would expect with a period home, this unique property offers many desirable period features to include high ceilings, original fireplaces, exposed stonework and large sash and case windows.

Old Kinglass Farmhouse (circa. 1895) is hidden from view on Borrowstoun Road and is approached by way of a curved driveway with stone chippings, the driveway leads up to the large double garage. There is a generously sized garden at the front of the property which has largely been laid to lawn – the garden is surrounded by a mixture of mature shrubs, flower beds and deciduous trees, there is a small summer house with patio area in one corner of the lawn. To the rear of the property, there is a paved drying area and a second garage/workshop. Finally, there is a small enclosed paved and walled side garden with an arbour to the side elevation with the mature plum and cherry trees.

Entry to the ground floor is by way of double storm doors which leads into a tiled porch before leading into the main hallway which has a WC and staircase to the first floor. The accommodation on the ground floor initially consists of a lounge or drawing room which is connected to a smaller sitting room. Across the hallway from the lounge is a dining room with an original stone fireplace.

The property can be configured in a number of ways to suit, currently there is one ensuite bedroom on the ground floor which is currently used as the main bedroom. There is smaller hallway with two storage cupboards which connects the kitchen/living room to the rest of the ground floor.

The kitchen is fully fitted with a range cooker and tiled floor, there is space for a dining table and chairs in the kitchen – next to the kitchen is the cosy living room with a multifuel stove set against an exposed stone wall. Finally, completing the accommodation on the ground floor, is a large workshop (which could be utilised as a further reception room), utility room and a study.

To the first floor, there is a master bedroom suite to include a recently installed ensuite shower room and dressing room. At the front elevation are two further double bedrooms and a smaller bedroom or box room. These bedrooms are serviced by a bathroom with corner bath and separate shower which is located on the split level landing. The first floor further offers an excellent amount of eaves storage space.

The property has gas central heating and double glazing.
