Linlithgow Hill sits on an elevated position with stunning views over the open countryside to Linlithgow's Avon Viaduct, as well as to the Firth of Forth. To the north of the property lies West Lothian Golf Course.

Situated under 2 miles from Linlithgow, the easily accessible town centre has an excellent range of supermarkets, shops, leisure facilities and professional services. There are good primary and secondary schools. Private schooling can be found in Clifton Hall in Newbridge, with Edinburgh and Glasgow also offering a greater range of independent schools.

Linlithgow's skyline is dominated by the historic Linlithgow Palace, which was the birthplace of both James V and Mary, Queen of Scots and is frequently referred to as Scotland's finest surviving late medieval building. Linlithgow Loch and Palace is a conservation area and the wildlife of the loch mark it as a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

The property is ideally placed for commuting to anywhere in central Scotland. Junctions 3 and 4 of the M9 are each under 3 miles away and provide a quick link to Edinburgh Airport (12.5 miles) and on to the city centre, as well as providing easy access northbound to Stirling and Perth. The M8 for Glasgow is less than 10 miles to the south. The railway station in Linlithgow is 2 miles away and offers easy commuter services to both Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Description

Built in 1971, Linlithgow Hill is a spacious and bright family home, set in just over an acre of ground with panoramic views over the West Lothian countryside and the Firth of Forth. Entering the property through a vestibule with internal glass wall and door, the reception hall is lit by plenty of natural light. Off the hall is a cloakroom with WC.

The main reception room is split in the middle by a feature wall, containing a large store, a butler's kitchen, and open fireplace with tiled hearth. The study and music room look out to the front garden, with multiple windows creating a bright space. The sitting room overlooks the lawn with panoramic views to the Avon Viaduct and beyond. A feature arched wood panelled ceiling rises above the sitting area, creating a double height effect.

From the reception hall, a dining room is accessed, with double serving hatch and a door into the kitchen. The open plan kitchen and breakfast area is separated by a low divider alongside the kitchen counter. Integrated appliances including fridge-freezer, ovens, ceramic hob, barbeque grill and dishwasher are fitted in base and wall units, which also provide ample storage. Further kitchen storage is found in the multiple shelves and cupboards on the hallway wall which leads to the rear of the property. A spacious conservatory can be accessed from the breakfast area, and provides access to the patio outside. To the rear of the property is a boot room with WC, a large office, and a fully fitted utility room with Belfast sink, washing machine, tumble dryer and deep freezer.

On the first floor, which is accessed by a spiral staircase, are four double bedrooms, two en suite, which all have a fantastic southerly outlook and view. The master bedroom has an en suite shower room with WC and basin. There is an additional bedroom, currently being used as an artist's studio, which is adjacent to the family bathroom. On either end of the landing are two large stores, and the spacious, partially floored loft is accessed by Ramsay ladder.


Outside
A tarmac drive leads over a cattle grid to ample parking space at the front of the property, as well as to the two garages to the side, with adjacent workshop.

The boundary of the property is marked with mature trees and hedges, with landscaped flower beds within the garden area. A large lawn surrounds the property to the south, maximising the wonderful views over the countryside and to the coast. A paved patio to the south of the property is located next to the conservatory and provides plenty of seating space.
