Lochside enjoys a southerly outlook and a tranquil, semi-rural setting in woodland gardens with access to a loch, a private driveway and garaging. With access to excellent local schools and amenities, and commuter links across Central Scotland, it offers a rare opportunity to complete this modern home, perfectly designed for a rural family lifestyle, in an idyllic, yet well-connected setting.
From the gated entrance, a long driveway sweeps to the front of the house, where double doors open into a large reception hallway. This impressive room, one of several awaiting completion, incorporates a bespoke, floating staircase, soaring to the first floor, and contemporary solid wood doors, which flow through the accommodation.
Ideal for a modern family lifestyle, the property boasts a magnificent open-plan living space incorporating a large kitchen, with an adjoining dining area, flowing into a cosy sitting area and a spacious formal living room. Decorated in soft-grey contemporary tones, this sociable space boasts a triple aspect, with large, south facing windows, maximising the light and flow, and giving rise to a bright and airy ambience.
The kitchen offers a sweep of sleek, grey-toned cabinets, with contrasting pale, moulded worktops, and a built-in table (ideal for everyday family meals). The exceptional storage incorporates an outstanding selection of integrated appliances (including an induction hob, overhead extractor, three ovens, a fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, coffee maker and a wine cooler). French doors provide a useful link to the garden, ideal for summer entertaining. Enjoying the southerly garden aspect, the sunny dining area has ample space for a large table. The adjoining sitting area enjoys a double height ceiling incorporating large, south facing windows, creating abundant natural light, with French doors flowing to a patio and inviting the outdoors inside. The formal lounge boasts ample space for comfortable furniture, around the cosy focal point of a stone-tiled hearth with a minimalist, living-flame gas fire.
Also on this level is a separate family room, alternatively a perfect, private home office. Ideally designed for country living, a back hall, with potential for a utility/boot room, leads to a proposed bathroom, and doors to the garden, boiler room and the garage.
On the first floor, the impressive, central galleried landing, with a glass balustrade overlooking the reception room below, gives access to four double bedrooms, a dressing room and four bathrooms. The proposed master bedroom enjoys an exceptional footprint, with an airy atmosphere enhanced by a dual aspect, including large windows, framing views of the garden. This generous double also boasts an en-suite bathroom, with a spa bath, and a separate shower cubicle. Adjoining is a potential dressing room, or alternatively a nursery or fifth bedroom. Two further double bedrooms benefit from fitted wardrobes, and a luxurious en-suite bathroom or shower room. A generous, four-piece family bathroom (including a bath and shower), completes the accommodation on this level.
Accessed by a staircase, a naturally lit floored attic (with storage) offers excellent potential as a further informal lounge, or alternatively a games room.
The property has gas central heating and double glazing, with underfloor heating throughout the ground floor, and an integrated Sonos sound system.
Outside, the house nestles within a woodland clearing, surrounded by grounds of approximately two acres, with gravelled paths leading through informal gardens with access to a loch. There is ample tarmaced parking to the front of the house, and secure parking within the integral double garage.

Lochside is located just on the fringe of open countryside and the tranquil Clyde Valley village of Braidwood. The house is set in a delightful woodland clearing with south facing aspects and wonderful gardens with access to a loch, hence the propertys name. Braidwood itself is a pleasant Lanarkshire village surrounded by some of the Clyde Valley's most attractive countryside and yet is only 23 miles from Glasgow city centre and 40 miles from Edinburgh. Carluke (2 miles) and Crossford(1 mile) provide good local shops and amenities, which adequately cater for everyday needs and requirements, while the historic town of Lanark, perhaps the best known town within the Clyde Valley, provides access to the rail network, a broad range of shops, supermarkets, banks, a selection of restaurants and a variety of sports and recreational facilities including the Lanark Golf Club, which boasts a championship standard 18 hole golf course. Lanark also has a selection of excellent schools.
