Buying a property, even at a smidge over £1 million pounds, often comes with compromise – a designer address, but no parking; stunning views, but no transport links, or a whole lot of land, but an eye-watering amount of investment required on the bricks and mortar.
But Bridges Properties are delighted to bring a modern executive property to market that offers pretty much the whole package.

If you want the joys of rural views and privacy, combined with easy access to Glasgow and Edinburgh, then Fernbrooke House on Balmuir Road, on the outskirts of Bathgate, has it all.
This gem of a property has four lavish bedrooms in the main house, plus a self-contained two bedroom apartment, making it an ideal home for those wanting to share a home across the generations.
The stunning estate has 0.89 acres of land, accessed via electric gates and a private bridge over a tranquil stream, hidden behind trees.
Once there, the house and the views are equally impressive. The kerb appeal is instant, with a grand house, double garage and ample parking on the estate, including a very stylish turning circle.
The first thing to capture the eye is the stunning statement staircase – it’s a beautiful oak wonder that splits in two, taking you up to the four bedrooms beyond, each with their own en-suite.
The ground floor is absolutely flooded with light; there’s ample room for family life and for entertaining, with a large lounge, stylish kitchen, dining room, snug and cinema room with bar.
Above the double garage is a self-contained two bedroom apartment with living, dining and kitchen space.
At one with nature
Many of the rooms afford delightful views, and some offer instant access via French doors to the beautifully landscaped grounds, with a mix of grass, gardens and patio, including a hot tub area and swim spa – don’t forget the built-in sound system! The house itself has 90 solar panels to help deliver lower-cost electricity, together with two top of the range ground source heat pumps, helping reduce the carbon footprint of the home and significantly reduce the running costs of the property.
Positioned on the A800, this house feel idyllically rural, yet close enough to the town centre for everyday shopping needs, and just a few miles from nearby train stations. The M8 is just a few minutes drive away, giving easy access to Glasgow or Edinburgh, or further south via the M74.
