This immaculately presented, two bedroom terraced cottage, nestled in the stunning rural setting of Woolfords, is the ideal home 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.

Formed over two levels, the ground floor is entered via the rear of the property, directly into the well-equipped, family kitchen. It features a selection of floor-standing and wall-mounted storage units, perfectly contrasted by black handles, and dark grey work-top with matching, tiled flooring. The sink is perfectly positioned, under the large window, and boasts a sleek, modern designed silver mixer tap. The room itself is a lovely peaceful space, decorated in a light apple green, with matching black, and green tiled splash-back and glass protecter behind the cooker. There is ample room for appliances, and plenty of work-top space for food preparation.

Leading on from the kitchen is the large, traditionally, styled lounge, bathed in light from the picture window, looking out to the stunning views over the countryside to the rear of the property. This room is the epitome of country style, with a larger sized wood-burning stove, positioned on a sturdy stone hearth, and framed by a solid wood mantle. Woodwork in this room, as with the rest of the property, is of a natural wood style, in-keeping with the traditional look and feel of the cottage.

Off of the lounge, and to the front of the property, with THE most outstanding views to the rolling fields and hills opposite, there is a very stylish and elegant, large double bedroom. Decorated in peaceful sage tones, this is the perfect spot for a restful night's sleep.

Rising to the second floor, is a freshly decorated and carpeted stairway, lit by it's own Velux window, and giving access to the upper level accommodation.

There is a second double bedroom, presented in immaculate condition and decorated in fresh neutral tones. This room has similarly stunning views to the front of the property, and hosts an extremely large storage cupboard, with further access into extensive eaves storage.

The second floor also hosts the very elegantly styled family bathroom, decorated in muted green tones, and includes a fresh white, three-piece suite, and over-bath power shower, with contrasting black accents including the taps, shower screen, and heated towel rail.

The upper landing also hosts a very large storage cupboard, with a deceptively large and well-lit interior.

Externally the cottage is surrounded front and back by the most astonishingly beautiful countryside views. The cottage itself is presented very attractively, having been recently rendered, giving it a bright and shiny exterior. Much of the exterior including, fencing, paving, gutters and downpipes have all been recently renewed, and the external area is presented in very good order.

Directly to the rear of the property there is a private drive, which provides access to the large, Saltire brand, timber-built garage. With a roller-shutter, Internal lining, alarm system, and with its own wi-fi and fuse box, this is the ideal garage for the avid car-enthusiast.

The property itself is a mid-terraced home within a block of five similar cottages. The block in-turn forms part of a small development of just 46 similarly built and styled ex-minor's cottages, which make up the village of Woolfords. The village has a strong community spirit, with a local community hall, community larder, and even an old-telephone box converted into an informal village lending library.

Schooling at primary level is provided at nearby Auchengray primary which has very low class numbers and therefore a very low pupil to teacher ratio. The property also falls under the sought-after Biggar High School catchment area, with a handy local bus service provided for primary and secondary school attendees.

Whilst Woolfords enjoys a very rural aspect, and one cannot overstate the beauty of the surrounding countryside, it is incredibly well placed for access to some of the larger surrounding villages, of Auchengray, Carstairs and Carnwath, with their local shops and amenities.
Surprisingly too, given it's secluded rural position, it is also ideally situated for those who still wish to access a wider choice of shopping and amenities. The larger shopping towns of Livingston and Lanark are just a short 15 and 20 minutes drive away respectively. There is easy access to public transport, with West Calder train station a mere 10 minutes drive away, providing frequent connections to both Glasgow and Edinburgh and all the leisure, shopping and entertainment options, both cities provide.
For the commuter, the Edinburgh City Bypass is only a 30 minutes drive away, giving good access to East Central Scotland. The M74 is only a 20 minute journey giving good access to Glasgow and the West of Scotland.

With oil-fired central heating, double glazing throughout, and in perfect walk-in condition, this is a truly unique, deceptively spacious and perfectly quaint family home in an idyllic rural location. It will no doubt prove to be extremely popular, therefore early viewing is recommended to avoid disappointment.
