A striking and award-winning, architect-designed house promising a unique family home in Falkirk,
complete with four double bedrooms, three reception rooms and two bathrooms, plus enchanting
private gardens and off-street parking
Occupying a prime corner plot on desirable Queen’s Crescent in Falkirk, this architect-designed
detached house represents a rare opportunity to acquire a truly unique family home. Designed and
built by local firms ARKA and GRS in 2013, the award-winning property was shortlisted in The
Scottish Home Awards 2014 and was highly commended in The Stirling Society of Architects - Best
Building 2014. The home is finished to a luxury specification throughout, and boasts eco credentials including efficient underfloor heating, superior glazing and a solar PV hot water system. Owing to its sizeable plot, the house is enveloped by beautiful grounds, which include a triple driveway to the front, and secluded side and rear gardens with a favourable southerly and westerly aspect.
Screened from the road by established trees, the new-build home instantly conveys an industrial feel with its simple lines, aged redbrick façade, and anthracite door and window trims. Inside awaits a stunning, double-height hall that is filled with natural light, and sets the tone for the accommodation to follow. The gleaming Porcelanosa tiles underfoot continue into the magnificent, triple-aspect living/dining room and kitchen, whose vast windows bring the leafy outdoors in. Made for modern family life and entertaining, the space falls naturally into dedicated yet cohesive zones for cooking, dining and relaxing, and is supplemented with a garden room – a charming snug with an electric wall-mounted fire and patio doors onto the west-facing deck. The sleek kitchen is arranged around a convivial island with bar seating, and comprises an array of white-gloss handleless cabinetry topped with solid iroko wood and toughened glass surfaces. In addition to extensive storage and workspace, the kitchen hosts a full complement of AEG integrated appliances: an induction hob, a double oven, a dishwasher and a fridge/freezer. The separate utility room adjacent provides practical laundry facilities. Also on the ground floor are a useful cloak cupboard, a two-piece WC, and a well proportioned double bedroom.
The exquisite oak staircase winds up to the light-filled, first-floor landing, which accommodates two
double bedrooms with built-in wardrobes, an immaculate four-piece family bathroom, and a dualaspect family room that could also be utilised as a fifth double bedroom. The second floor is
dedicated to the luxurious master suite, which comprises a large double bedroom, a four-piece
bathroom, a substantial fitted wardrobe and a dressing area.
The property benefits from gas-fired central heating with zoned underfloor heating throughout the
ground floor. The windows are double-glazed for maximum efficiency, and the house is also
equipped with a solar PV hot water system.
Externally the property boasts a triple driveway and a useful external store to the front. The
secluded, south-facing garden to the side is bathed in morning and afternoon sun, while the secure
rear garden enjoys a westerly aspect, and features deck, manicured lawns, mature shrubs and trees.
Extras: all fitted carpets and floor coverings, blinds, light fixtures, integrated appliances and
freestanding washing machine to be included in the sale.
