4 bedroom semi-detached house for sale
Ecclesmachan, Broxburn, West Lothian
Dating from about 1823, and formerly a school house, Burnbrae is a pretty, traditional property characterised by yellow sandstone (from the nearby Binny Quarry), astragal
windows, and gables with painted timber facings. Over the last few years, the accommodation has undergone extensive renovation and the property is now beautifully
presented and in move-in condition.
The principal reception rooms are at the front of the house, the recently fitted kitchen is at the heart of the house and family sitting room is at the rear. A master bedroom with en suite bathroom and the third bedroom are on the first
floor with two further bedrooms on the ground floor. The property has been decorated in a style that is sympathetic to the character of the property. The Village Hall is adjoined to the western side of the house.
Burnbrae is situated in the peaceful rural hamlet of Ecclesmachan. The area is extremely popular among buyers who appreciate the rural but commutable location, as well as the friendly community.
Burnbrae is ideally placed for access to Scotlandís major cities. Uphall train station is less than two miles away with regular trains to
Edinburgh and Linlithgow train station is about 5 miles away with fast trains to Edinburgh, Glasgow and Stirling. The M8, M9 and Forth
Road Bridge are nearby and link to central Scotlandís motorway network. Edinburgh airport is only about 10 minutes away by road.
Linlithgow, famed as the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots and characterised by its 15th century palace offers extensive local services including supermarkets, a health centre and a sports and leisure centre. Livingston (5 miles) has one of Britainís largest shopping complexes and designer outlets as well as a multiplex cinema. Edinburgh (16 miles), has all the high street shops, services, communication links and cultural opportunities to be expected of Scotlandís capital city.
There is a good network of cycle routes, bridle paths and rights of way locally and the Scottish National Equestrian Centre at Oatridge is a wonderful resource for families or individuals with equestrian interests. There are country parks at Beecraigs and Muiravonside, and the Ochil, Campsie and Pentland hills offer
spectacular scenery for those who enjoy hill walking, fishing and field sports. Various golf courses (including Linlithgow, Uphall, Oatridge and Bathgate) are within striking distance.
There is space to park in a small courtyard at the rear of the house where the back door gives direct access to the kitchen. There is also an expansive gravel parking area beside the garage at the main entrance of the house. A path leads from here through the garden to the front door of the house.
The garden at Burnbrae is a particular feature of the property and extends to just over half an acre. Bordered by new as well as mature trees and shrubs, it is very secluded and has
views across a well tended churchyard. A south facing terrace is an ideal place to sit out in the summer.
At the rear of the house an outbuilding is plumbed and fitted as a utility room.
A single garage is situated at the front entrance to the property.
