Elderslie House, Wallacestone Brae
Substantial four-bedroom detached villa in the historic village of Wallacestone near Falkirk, promising a unique family home with breathtaking panoramic views across the Forth Valley towards the Ochil Hills, plus vast landscaped gardens, a detached double garage and a substantial monoblock driveway.
Nestled in the historic village of Wallacestone in popular Falkirk, this unique detached villa has been individually designed to take full advantage of the stunning panoramic views across the Forth Valley towards the magnificent Ochil Hills. The village takes its name from Wallace’s Stone (a monument in Wallacestone public park just behind the property), which marks the spot where Sir William Wallace saw his defeat to King Edward I at the Battle of Falkirk in July 1298.
The modern, upside-down-house boasts no fewer than four reception rooms, four double bedrooms and four bathrooms, and externally enjoys extensive landscaped gardens, a substantial monoblock driveway, and a detached double garage with self-contained office space with conversion potential.
Positioned high above the vast driveway and behind established gardens, the villa is approached via stone steps that curve up to the charming porch. Here double storm doors open into a practical vestibule, followed by a grand reception hall with a traditional staircase to main living accommodation on the first floor. Designed as a central hub, the exceptionally spacious dining room is flooded with all-day light courtesy of a large south-facing window and dual skylights to both the east and west. The adjoining living room is a wonderful spot to enjoy the spectacular views, come rain or shine, with full-height patio doors onto the charming balcony and a living-flame gas fire. Approached via the dining room, the large dining kitchen is lined with ample fitted storage and workspace, plus a range of integrated and freestanding appliances, namely an electric hob, an extractor hood, an electric double oven, a dishwasher and an American-style fridge/freezer.
Returning directly to the landing, the first floor also accommodates a cosy family room, which is a mirror image of the living room, plus a threepiece WC and a useful store. On the ground floor is a lavish master bedroom with a fitted dressing room and an en-suite shower room, which features a double walk-in shower and a sauna cabin. The second double bedroom boasts a dressing room with fitted wardrobes and an en-suite shower room; the two further double bedrooms enjoy built-in wardrobes and share the four-piece family bathroom. The large study on this level benefits fr om south-facing patio doors onto the garden, and would lend itself to endless uses such as a fifth bedroom or a playroom. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a large cloakroom leading into the practical utility room, which has a back door to the garden. The property benefits from gas central heating and double glazing throughout.
The villa is enveloped by mature landscaped gardens, which include a large, suntrap patio to the rear. The extensive monoblock driveway and the double detached garage provide off-street parking for multiple vehicles, and there is scope to convert the existing office space into a selfcontained annex for guests or extended family.
