Tenure: Freehold

Set in seemingly endless, mature 2 1/2 acre grounds and offering complete tranquility, Forfar House enjoys a countryside setting yet remains at the heart of things too!

This sprawling 5208 sqft (484m2) property has been carefully laid out to make a home that is spacious and yet still feels like a place of discovery. The full extent of the large square footage is not instantly revealed, which makes the house feel homely and welcoming. Forfar House is a place of discovery – both indoors and outdoors.

EPC Band - D

A house for all occasions - Whatever their age, there is scope for everyone to do what they want to do at Forfar House. This home has been used for big 'get togethers' for friends and family that have included everything from a 'Casino' night to football parties involving four of five teams and there's plenty of parking around the house to host such a gathering.
Above all, Forfar House is a place that has many 'layers' or facets. It lends itself to whatever you want it to be. It's a great place for people of all ages, and it's wonderful backdrop to social and private gatherings. There really are no limitations here - just opportunities to live a happy and contented life as an individual and as a family.

The interior of the property has been designed to give everyone in the house their own space too; private and communal spaces are not simply grouped together in a block, but are carefully laid out to provide a natural flow. The heart of this impressive home is undoubtedly the large, open plan kitchen/diner/family room. Beautifully designed by Clive Christian, this multi-purpose space at 76m2 (814 sq ft), is larger than some apartments and opens out directly to the wraparound deck and garden. Sticking with space, the master suite boasts the usual sleeping and en suite facilities plus a self contained study and open gallery with balcony plus a private gym and sauna.
The same is true outside: there is space and room here for everyone to enjoy diverse activities without disturbing others. Children can go out and play as soon as the sun comes out on a summer's day. Alternatively, a five-a-side 'kick-about' or a tennis match on the floodlit sports court for older members of the household and guests does not have to end at any particular hour.
Importantly too, the layout works well for elderly relatives and guests too with a separate 2 bedroom guest suite and 3 ground floor bedrooms.

Ballencrieff Toll sits on the edge of the Bathgate Hills and enjoys an elevated position with panoramic views to the South and West. It's within easy walking distance of the town centre so restaurants, friends and, importantly, children's friends are all easily accessible - and all without the need for driving.
You really can be in your own little world here but still less than 10 minutes drive from train stations in Bathgate, Linlithgow and the major road links to Edinburgh, Glasgow and Stirling via M8 & M9 motorways. You are on the right side of the city for, and in easy reach of Edinburgh airport which can be accessed within 25 minutes.
