Extremely rare to the market traditional five-bedroom detached stone-built villa with incredible living space located in the highly desirable area of Polmont, sandwiched equidistantly between Falkirk and Linlithgow. This immaculate period style property built circa 1890 has been meticulously upgraded internally and externally including roof maintenance. It seamlessly blends modern high-quality fixtures and fittings whilst maintaining many traditional beautiful ornate features.
This property sits on an enviable plot just off Polmont Main Street with an extensive driveway wrapping around to the rear of the property and it’s wonderful enclosed gardens. Clisham House provides several accommodation options comprising a large living room, dining room, generous kitchen, a separate ‘snug’/additional living room with upstairs bedroom and wc, downstairs wc, four further bedrooms (one downstairs) and a family bathroom. The property is completed with a detached single garage.
The main entrance is via a vestibule and then into a hugely welcoming entrance hallway with high ceilings and attention is drawn to the impressive staircase and distinctive stained glass windows. The hallway provides access to all rooms on this level with the two main reception rooms to the front. The cosy and inspiring main living room is a great size and offers the perfect family room to relax and entertain. There is a lovely traditional bay window bathing itself in an abundance of natural light complimenting the feature fireplace warmth and charm whilst overlooking the north facing grounds. The adjacent dining room is another fabulous room offering flexible living and complete with a storage cupboard and ideal for larger dinner or social gatherings.
The generously sized kitchen boasts an array of wall and base units, ample worktops, space for appliances both integrated and free standing, a breakfasting table and access to ‘The Snug’. This additional living room offers a unique addition and yet another area to the house which acts like an annex/maisonette with own bedroom and wc (via stairs). There is double access to the rear garden from the snug through attractive French doors and separate door. Completing the lower level is a tastefully decorated large bedroom to the rear and quirky understairs wc. Complementary, and recently installed, flooring runs throughout.
Ascending the stairs to the upper level is a large spacious landing accessing all rooms. From here you will find three well-proportioned bedrooms which have all been equally decorated in neutral colours and all complete with feature windows and unusual storage closets. The master bedroom boasts a separate, and unique, walk-in wardrobe stretching the full length of the room. The modern partially tiled family bathroom boasts a white 4-piece suite with individual corner shower. Additionally, there is a large walk-in storage/laundry cupboard-room on this floor.
The extensive front garden which is mainly lawn and surrounded by fence, trees and conifer offers a large enchanting area to enjoy family fun. There are decorative stones and pathway immediately outside the property and a lovely dining area at the front and rear of the property. To the rear there is also a south facing, well-maintained garden incorporating decorative patio and mature planting, decking area for outside furniture dining and socialising and a corner childrens play area affording safety.
Privacy and space are extremely apparent throughout the whole garden/property.
Other points of interest include upgrades and refurbishments throughout (in the last 3-4 years), double glazing (windows replaced in 2019), loft access and more than ample storage including press-cupboards.
