Rebecca March of Galbraith, who is handling the sale, said: “East Bonhard offers a superb rural lifestyle with the added advantage of proximity to the historic town of Linlithgow.
“The property has a lovely garden and a manageable amount of land, which will have huge appeal for anyone looking to create a smallholding, grow their own fruit and vegetables, keep horses and enjoy the lovely open outlooks.
“The house has been wonderfully upgraded while retaining a wealth of period features. There is also the opportunity to convert the outbuildings to additional accommodation or business use, subject to planning permission. The property offers an exceptional lifestyle for families or those with equestrian interests.”
East Bonhard Farmhouse provides well-proportioned and flexible accommodation which has benefited from recent modernization, including extensive internal and external decoration to a very high standard. There are three attractive reception rooms, with the superb dining kitchen being the heart of the home. Upstairs there are four bedrooms and two luxurious bathrooms, both recently installed.
The spacious garden is predominantly south facing and includes borders, mature trees and seating area in a private setting.
The house has fantastic views over the surrounding countryside to the sea and the impressive Forth crossings. Its spacious and well-maintained gardens and paddocks are very peaceful, despite the accessible location.
The property extends to 2.54 acres with approximately 1.95 acres (0.79 ha) grazing land, classified as Grade 3.1 by the James Hutton Institute. The land is split into two stock-proof paddocks with water troughs, timber field shelter and polytunnel.
The outbuildings include a workshop/gym and barn, both of stone construction. The workshop provides convenient storage space and is ideally suited for use as a home gym. The barn provides extensive storage space for vehicles and implements and has both residential and commercial development potential, subject to obtaining the necessary consents.
The popular historic town of Linlithgow lies to the south west and is well known for the impressive ruins of Linlithgow Palace, a former residence of the Scottish monarchy. The M9 provides easy access to Edinburgh, Stirling and Glasgow. In addition there is also the railway station at Linlithgow, which is on the main line, and offers regular services to Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Stirling. Edinburgh airport is only 15 minutes’ drive from East Bonhard Farmhouse.
