This beautifully presented traditional sandstone upper villa conversion, located in the picturesque village of Lesmahagow, is a stunning family home, ideal for a variety of households. It will be particularly suited to those wishing to enjoy a quiet and peaceful location, with gorgeous rural views, whilst remaining in easy reach of many nearby amenities, and transport links.
Approached via a substantial sandstone stairway, the property is entered via a glass panelled main door, protected via secure storm-doors, which open on to a tiled entrance vestibule. Inside, the hall is formed over two levels, with the kitchen and bathroom off the lower hall, and all other apartments accessed via the upper level of the split-level grand hall-way.
This spacious hall is resplendent with high-ceilings, corniced arch-way, and is lit by a stunning stained-glass window and traditional style light-fittings. The grand dimensions of this flexible space allow for both an office area, and reception space.
Accessed via the lower hall, the kitchen includes a selection of wall-mounted and floor-standing wood-coloured storage units, accented by dark coloured worktops, and light coloured floor tiles. The walls are tiled to ceiling height and feature an attractive mink and grey coloured tile border. The kitchen further benefits from an integrated gas hob, electric oven, as well as under-counter appliances. The room enjoys a delightful view over the beautifully maintained gardens to the rear.
Adjacent to the kitchen, is the large family bathroom, tiled floor to ceiling, in cream tiles, with the same mink and grey motif as next door. It includes a white three-piece suite, with several handy storage options including a built-in vanity unit under the wash-hand basin, a triple-mirrored cabinet above the W.C. And a wall-mounted storage cupboard at the foot of the bath, as well as wall mounted towel storage. The bathroom also benefits from an over-bath power shower, glass shower-screen and heated silver towel-rail.
Rising to the upper level, there are three incredibly spacious double bedrooms, and two large sized public rooms.
To the front of the building is the expansive formal lounge, with a wonderful ornate ceiling. It is beautifully lit by the stunning bay window formation over-looking picturesque Broompark drive below, and the hills surrounding Lesmahagow beyond. This is a wonderful space for relaxing or entertaining, with its neutral décor, perfectly accented by the traditional panelling in the ceiling, as well as a feature wooden fireplace, and matching in-set decorative cupboards. The room is elegantly styled, with many unique furniture items, perfectly suited to this individual space, and which may be available for sale at an additional cost.
The master bedroom is also positioned to the front of the building, and as such enjoys the same impressive views over Lesmahagow, framed by a particularly attractive window formation. This is another stunningly proportioned room, decorated in neutral tones, with a Crystal Milano, 9-Bulb centre-piece light-fitting with dimmer control, and a beautiful wooden feature fire-place. This is a lovely, elegant and comfortable space, perfect for relaxing and enjoying a restful night’s sleep.
Also to the front of the property is a further double bedroom, currently in use as a snug and with the same high ceilings and neutral tones, perfect accommodation for family living.
The third bedroom, is another vast space, decorated in gorgeous light tones, with many pretty features, including a large ornamental fire-place and built-in traditional shelving. The room is also served by an extensive, tall, white modular unit, providing a very elegant and clever storage solution. Internally, it is fitted out with various storage sections, including drawers for clothes as well as jewellery and other personal possessions, shelving and various wardrobe options, all of which are soft-close and illuminated, for ease of use. This pretty, yet practical room, is lit by a stunning wood-panelled window, framing gorgeous views over the peaceful rear garden.
Rounding off the extensive accommodation on this level is an opulent dining / breakfasting room. With an eye-catching waterfall centre-piece light-fitting, and ornate white fireplace, this room has been cleverly adapted by the current owner. It doubles as both a traditional dining room, as well as a hotel-style breakfasting room, by the addition of a pretty white handle-less storage array, including built in lighting, a well-disguised integrated fridge freezer as well as additional food and utensil storage. These clever adaptions make this both a beautiful and elegant dining room, while increasing the functional utility of the space. As with the lounge, the current owner has furnished the room with several statement pieces, the purchase of which can also be discussed with prospective buyers.
The property further benefits from gas-fired central heating, and boasts sash & case windows, in-keeping with a building of this type and style.
Externally the building is of a very attractive and desirable traditional style, a wonderful example of its type and era. The grounds are accessed via their own private wrought-iron gates supported by ornate stone pillars, and accessed via a very large, private drive-way leading to a wooden garage, with lighting and electricity. To the side of the garden, is a pretty lattice arbour seat – this will remain at the property, so the future owners may also enjoy sitting here watching the sun go down.
To the rear, there is a huge, and beautifully presented mixed-use garden, with several differing levels and sections, providing loads of options to enjoy outside space for both socialising, and relaxation. There are several sun-terraces, an area laid to lawn, as well as a mixture of stone-chipped and paved areas, with many mature plants and shrubs adding to the appeal. There are also various ornamental ponds, as well as green-house and garden-shed, both of which have electricity supplied. The drive and garden is well lit with lots of subtle lighting, integrated throughout each of the sections. The grounds are surrounded by a secure stone wall and to the rear are protected by many mature trees beyond the perimeter. This is a truly wonderful, and must-see space, which will no-doubt be enjoyed all year round.
Broompark drive itself is one of, if not the most sought-after street within the village of Lesmahagow. It enjoys a central, yet peaceful location elevated behind the main street of Abbeygreen and enjoys views over the surrounding greenery of the village.
The street boasts a mixture of traditional and modern accommodation, with very few properties of this type coming to market locally.
Lesmahagow is a wonderful and thriving village community and is well served with 2 primary schools and a high school. Locally there are play parks and outdoor areas for walks and socialising. There are a number of local shops on the main street of Abbeygreen, as well as a Tesco supermarket within a few moments’ drive. There are also some fantastic eating establishments including nearby Harris & Ollie's Bistro, and Abbeygreen Cafe on the main street. Coalburn village a few minutes drive away also has its own leisure centre and swimming pool.
Whilst the property is in a village setting, it is just a short drive from the M74 motorway - and gives easy access to transport links to the nearby shopping towns of Lanark, Larkhall, Hamilton and Motherwell, as well as onward travel to the cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow and south towards England. It would therefore also suit commuters who would like to enjoy the benefits of a village and the wonderful community it provides.
