Williamcraigs House, Linlithgow, West Lothian EH49 6QF

Offers Over £1,400,000

Williamcraigs House, Linlithgow is a fine example of an impressive Scottish Baronial villa, Circa 1858 and set amidst 1.8 acres of private garden grounds in an idyllic rural landscape. 

 

This elegantly spacious Victorian “B” listed stone built property has been tastefully renovated and upgraded to an exceptionally high standard throughout and blends perfectly the traditional stone built character and magnificent original features with tastefully enhanced modern living creating a superb property of considerable charm and distinction.  Every detail has been carefully considered and the execution has been carried out with workmanship and materials of the finest quality, making it a perfect family home offering all the benefits of country living within close proximity to both Edinburgh and Glasgow.

 

The house is steeped in history and was originally commissioned by William Stewart as his country manor in 1858, thereafter it was owned by the MacKinnon family whose ancestor Captain MacKinnon swore allegiance to Bonnie Prince Charlie and safely delivered him to the Western Isles after the Battle of Culloden to continue his fight.   To show his gratitude, the Prince is said to have given Captain MacKinnon the recipe for a fragrant liquor made of honey and herbs which is known today as Drambuie and it is rumoured that the original recipe is hidden in the walls of Williamcraigs House.

 

The house is set back from the road with a broad gravel driveway and is surrounded by beautifully established gardens with a sunken pond, patio area and its own listed “Summer house”. 

 

Of particular note is the original decorative cornice work throughout, traditional fireplaces, natural wood panelling and floors, a feature staircase and turreted tower complimented by contemporary bathrooms which have been tastefully tiled and a superb bespoke kitchen with  granite worktops, an oil fired Aga, American style fridge freezer and integrated dishwasher.  A new efficient oil fired central heating system has recently been installed and ensures a comfortable and ambient living environment.

 

Not only is Williamcraigs House an truly superb country home perfect for a growing family, but it also offers great potential and opportunities for business development as its adaptable accommodation lends itself well as an Air BnB and even a country house hotel.  Alternatively for those working from home the spacious upper floor could be easily adapted to form a perfect home office.

 

Williamcraigs House is located off the A706 approximately two miles from the historic Royal Burgh of Linlithgow, a bustling market town renowned for its excellent local services.  These include a broad range of private local retailers, traditional arts and craft shops, a Sainsburys and Tesco supermarket.  The town is home to a number of highly regarded restaurants.    There are also a wide selection of recreational facilities available which includes the Xcite Sports Centre which has swimming pool and leisure activities, golf courses, Beecraigs Country Park and many pleasant walks in the surrounding countryside.  In addition to this Linlithgow has excellent local schools within the catchment at both primary and secondary levels.  It is well positioned for excellent transport connections to all the major towns of central Scotland and the M9 gives quick access to Edinburgh and the M80 to Glasgow, respectively. The railway station provides regular services to Glasgow and Edinburgh.
