Location

Set in a lovely rural location about 2 miles north of Uphall, East Broadlaw is surrounded by open countryside, yet has the benefit of being close to excellent transport links for commuting to Edinburgh or Glasgow.

The nearby railway stations of Livingston and Uphall provide good commuter services. There is also a convenient tram stop at Ingliston Park & Ride and the property is extremely well placed for driving to both Edinburgh and Glasgow, via the A71 and M8/M9 and M90 motorway network.

The area is well served by local playgroups and nursery, primary and secondary schools. Nearby Livingston offers a wide range of services and amenities including extensive shopping facilities, supermarkets, restaurants, coffee shops and leisure facilities, including gyms and swimming pools, and also a multiscreen cinema. The nearby town of Broxburn is 3.4 miles away, and provides a range of shops, pubs, a post office, a medical practice, library, pharmacies, swimming pools, and leisure/gym centre. All the fee paying schools in Edinburgh are easily accessible, as East Broadlaw is located only around 17 miles from the city centre.

The Scottish National Equestrian Centre is located nearby, which offers state of the art facilities and often hosts both domestic and European competitions. Oatridge Golf Club is located just down the road from East Broadlaw, and is further complemented by Binny golf course.

Description

Originally a mill house that dates back to 1862, East Broadlaw has since been converted into a spacious and light family home.

The front door opens up onto the welcoming entrance hall, which is wonderfully light and spacious due to three full length windows looking into the dining area and beyond to the rear garden. To the left of the hall is a study, and access to the open plan sitting and dining rooms. The two areas are separated by a feature stone wall housing an open fire and log store. Large double patio doors open up to the rear garden and patio, flooding the space with natural light. The views beyond the garden extend to the open countryside and feature the Pentland Hills. The dining area has two windows also overlooking the rear garden and countryside beyond.

Accessed from the sitting room are a double bedroom and the master suite. The master bedroom features an en suite shower room, dressing area, and dual aspect windows. Overlooking the front drive are three full height windows, one of which is also a patio door.

To the right of the entrance hall are two further double bedrooms, one of which has an en suite shower room. The other bedroom is serviced by a large family bathroom, which lies adjacent to the bedroom.

A utility room with connected store houses the oil boiler. The hallway leads to a back hall, with side door providing access to the rear patio and garden. A large sun room, in a pentagonal shape, overlooks the side garden and decked terrace with access from two patio doors. Timber trusses and beams are featured alongside four electric Velux windows.

From the back hall, a short staircase leads down to the next level of the property, which was the original stores attached to the mill. An incredible double height, open plan space houses a modern kitchen with breakfast area, and a further seating area focused around a log burning stove. The kitchen features an original stone wall with wood burning stove, island with Belfast sink, storage cupboards, and worktop space which is located underneath a suspended storage rack. The kitchen units are topped with granite worktops and include integrated appliances such as Siemens induction hobs, double oven, microwave and fridge. The breakfast area is located under the four Velux skylights, and next to a low lying window with seat, overlooking the garden.

Steps lead down to the sitting room with patio doors opening onto the west garden, and focuses around a second wood burning stove set within an original stone wall. A door set within the stone wall leads through into a spacious and versatile games room that would also make an excellent family room or home cinema. A snooker table is set under low hanging lights, and a shower room, bar and store are located at the far wall. Stairs lead up to a first floor landing, off which is a shower room and further bedroom, with dual aspect windows overlooking the garden and countryside.

Outside
From the quiet lane that leads down to the property, a front parking area is easily accessed and can house multiple vehicles. A double garage is located off the parking area and contains a floored loft used for further storage.

The paved area continues around the house to the front door, with landscaped terraced gardens on the boundary line.

Surrounded on the remaining sides, East Broadlaw is set within a pretty landscaped garden. To the west is the original water source that once fed the mill, and is now a tranquil water feature; the sun room, and large decked terrace.

Following the gradient of the property, the garden descends down a gentle slope, with stone staircase, with raised beds, vegetable patches, and a greenhouse located at the site of the original mill wheel. The rear garden, looking south to the Pentland Hills, is wonderfully landscaped and features well maintained flower beds, shrubs, a further patio area, paved path, and sculptures made of reclaimed stone from the original mill.
