30 Main Street, Winchburgh EH52 6RT
Traditional semi- detached cottage with south-facing rear garden
This traditional semi-detached cottage on Winchburgh's Main Street boasts deceptively spacious, flexible accommodation, including two double bedrooms, generous living areas, and a large, useable attic space, whilst, externally, is accompanied by extensive gardens and a private driveway.
Though a well-loved family home, the cottage now offers fantastic potential for modernisation and upgrading, and, owing to the large attic and garden space, provides opportunity for future extension and development, subject to the correct permissions. The home and its location, close to local amenities, schools, and transport links, is sure to appeal to couples, commuting professionals, young families, downsizers, and rental investors alike.
The cottage's handsome stone exterior and slate roof provide a welcoming first impression and you are invited inside by an entrance vestibule leading through to a hall with built-in storage. Leading off the hall and quietly positioned to the rear of the property is a living room.
Occupying a generous footprint which allows for a number of furniture layouts, with a homely fire as a focal point, the living room enjoys a tranquil south-facing aspect with leafy garden views. A traditional Press-style cupboard and under-window shelving complete the space.
Across the hall, a dining kitchen awaits. Offering ample room for a sociable, central seated dining area, the kitchen is currently fitted with a wealth of cabinets and workspace, designed to incorporate space for a number of freestanding and undercounter appliances. A cooker, a fridge, and a washing machine are included. A door from the kitchen affords access to a rear hall, which in turn leads to a porch, then outside.
Returning back through the hall to the front of the property, you reach two double bedrooms. These tranquil sleeping areas both offer plenty of space for freestanding bedroom furniture and incorporate built-in storage. Finally on the ground floor, a bathroom currently comprises a bath with an overhead shower, a wall-mounted basin with a mirrored vanity cabinet overhead, and a WC. A large attic, accessed from the hall via a Ramsay ladder, houses two large useable rooms and extensive eaves storage, which could in the future, be converted into additional living and/or sleeping accommodation, subject to the relevant permission. The cottage benefits from a gas central heating system and double- glazed windows.
Externally, the home is accompanied by extensive gardens to the side and rear. The side areas are low-maintenance and include a private driveway and two large sheds, whilst the favourably south-facing rear garden features an expanse of neatly-kept lawn with a leafy border of colourful, mature shrubs and trees.
EPC Rating - E.
Extras: All fitted floor and window coverings, light fittings, and kitchen appliances to be included in the sale.
The charming village of Winchburgh offers the best of both worlds: a relaxed rural haven within easy reach of the capital. Situated approximately ten miles west of Edinburgh city centre and enveloped by rolling hills and rich green pastures, Winchburgh offers no shortage of outdoor activities including a network of walking and cycle routes throughout the dense countryside or along picturesque Union Canal.
Winchburgh is also home to the historic tower house Niddry Castle, with prestigious Niddry Castle Golf Club within its grounds. Much of Winchburgh's charm lies in its increasingly rare village ambience and thriving local community. The village boasts a remarkable range of services and amenities including independent shops and eateries, a post office, hotel, pharmacy, and a medical centre, plus a community centre offering a varied programme of clubs and classes for all ages. Early years and primary education is provided at two local primary schools, Winchburgh and Holy Family RC, followed by secondary schooling at highly- regarded Linlithgow Academy.
