Features & Description
This traditional, five-bedroom, detached villa represents an exceptional family home with an abundance of flexible accommodation for hybrid living, striking the perfect private and work life balance for luxury lifestyles.
With a desirable south-facing aspect, this stylish property offers three reception rooms, multiple bathrooms, and a Farmhouse-inspired dining kitchen, further benefitting from mature gardens and extensive parking. It features well-retained period details and contemporary interior design, predominantly coupled with stripped wooden floorboards. Furthermore, the gated villa is situated in an exclusive neighbourhood in the Uphall conservation area, beside picturesque open countryside and within easy reach of outstanding amenities.
Inside, the front door opens to a classically-tiled vestibule, leading into a reception hall with a WC and a cloakroom. From the outset, the impeccably high standards of the property are instantly apparent. On the left, the living room continues to inspire, catching the eye with its suave décor and generous footprint. It is fronted by a south-facing bay window for a constant flood of natural light and is framed by a handsome period fireplace, inset with a multi-fuel stove. Sculptured coving and a ceiling rose draw attention to the classical proportions, whilst an Edinburgh Press completes the aesthetic.
Two further reception rooms, with equally impressive proportions, add to the home's versatility, including a formal dining room, with an exquisite feature fireplace, and a play room with endless potential for alternate uses.
In the farmhouse-inspired dining kitchen, white cabinets are paired with chunky wooden worktops and metro-style splashbacks for a wholly modern look. The sophisticated, L-shaped design incorporates space for a large family dining table and is streamlined by integrated appliances (induction hob, raised double oven, and dishwasher). A well-appointed utility room and a laundry room supplement the kitchen with additional storage and workspace.
Upstairs, the galleried landing is brightened by feature windows framed by stained glass, bringing additional light throughout the villa. It provides two deep cupboards and extends to five bedrooms, which consist of four very spacious doubles and one single that is arranged as an office.
All of the bedrooms display a keen eye for detail, with calming neutral décor for a peaceful night's sleep. The principal bedroom, with the largest dimensions, has the added luxury of dual-aspect glazing, including a sweeping bay window for a truly airy ambience.
Two doubles come with built-in cupboards, whilst the third has a shelved recess for display items.
Serving this level is a bathroom and a separate shower room, both with high- spec three-piece suites. The bathroom has a stylish, ultra-modern design, whilst the shower room is equally impressive with its modern take on traditional styling. A largely-floored attic creates additional storage. The property is kept warm all year-round by a new gas central heating system and by Glaze and Save magnetic double glazing.
Externally, the extensive garden grounds, to the south-facing front and enclosed rear, are beautifully landscaped and mostly laid to lawn, bordered by established shrubbery and mature trees.
A haven for the family, the rear garden offers excellent privacy and a suntrap, timber-decked dining bay, as well as a garden hut that has been repurposed as a sauna. Secure parking for several vehicle is provided by the gated driveway and a detached double garage, which is connected to a large workshop and a private office with electricity, internet, and an air source heat pump. Extras: all fitted floor and window coverings, select light fittings, integrated kitchen appliances, an American-style fridge/freezer, a washing machine, and a wine cooler to be included in the sale.Read more
