Find rural peace and inspiration

Located on a small traditional steading development, 7 Wallhouse Farm Steading is a 5-double bedroom family home that blends the past with the present to create a winning combination – a luxurious modern home with a traditional style and a feeling of permanence. There is a real community here in this steading of seven individual properties.

EPC Band - C

The house is near the peaceful and historic conservation village of Torphichen. Approached via a smooth tarmac farm road, which leads off a quiet B-road, and bordered by mature native woodland to the side, the house feels set apart and yet it is right at the heart of Central Scotland and just a short drive away from the M8 and M9 motorway network. Importantly too, for homeworking, this house has high-speed broadband.

Security and beautiful surroundings

The surroundings here are deeply rural, with woodland and rolling fields. It a place that offers great security and is ideal for young children as there is no through traffic. The area generally is a great place for people of all ages, and offers total relaxation and space to enjoy nature. It is also somewhere to get time to think and work in a quiet and productive environment – and to be inspired by the beautiful surroundings.


A brilliant blend of tradition and modernity

The exterior of the timber-clad, rural Scottish vernacular-style front porch ‘sets the bar high’ for the interior of the house – and it does not disappoint. The porch, with its wall panelling and window seats on either side opens into the large and beautifully lit hallway of this impressive but subtly sophisticated home. Solid oak woodwork and light neutral colours, accentuated by natural light that floods down from the landing and through the glass-panelled balustrade of the staircase, create a sense of bright optimism and freshness.

The house feels contemporary and yet true to tradition. The large kitchen/family room combines a state-of-the-art kitchen (with a farmhouse feel to it), with elegant open-plan living. You are aware of the building’s heritage in details such as the deeply recessed window seats, the height, width and scale of the interior, and in touches like the stone feature wall, but the room is not defined and limited by that heritage. Its ‘wow factor’ lies in the way it combines tradition and modernity to become more than the sum of its parts.

A careful lay-out that connects all areas

The house is large and carefully laid out. To the left of the hall, and on the other side of the kitchen with its separate utility room, you will find a short and sunny corridor with a bathroom, a double bedroom currently in use as a home office, and a further spacious bedroom. This is a bright room, with handcrafted Neville Johnson shelving that’s perfect for bibliophiles and provides plenty of storage space. It has its own en suite, which makes it perfect for elderly and/or infirm guests.


A feeling of restfulness and comfort

Going back into the hallway and up the solid oak bespoke staircase, you will find a broad galleried landing lit by FAKRO roof windows. To the right of the landing there is an impressive and airy bedroom, which is perfect for guests and is situated immediately next to the family bathroom.

As in the other rooms up here the bedroom’s high ceiling is vaulted, creating a sense of drama, and there are lovely views through the mansard window that looks out over the gardens. Again, FAKRO roof windows make the room even brighter. There are two further bedrooms, including a master bedroom with a luxurious en suite, on the other side of the landing.

A sense of freedom and enchantment

Living here feels liberating – indoors and outdoors. The front garden is south-facing, and gets the sun throughout the day. The uninterrupted views are of fields, hedgerows and woodland copses, and the only sounds are of birdsong, the gentle flow of the nearby stream and the wind in the trees, which form a belt of native woodland that runs along the entire side of the house. It is an enchanting place - even kingfishers can be seen here.

The rear garden is part of the property’s inner courtyard. It is a cool and tranquil place to retreat to when the summer sun is blazing down on the front of the house.


Style and substance

This is home with substance as well as style. There is parking for up to five vehicles as well as other communal parking spaces and a large, gabled double garage, which is also perfect for working on projects. It is all part of a family home that meets, and exceeds, all requirements.
