Crosswood, West Calder, EH55 8LP
Guests enter from their own garden at the rear of the farmhouse into their own two-storey home in the middle of the farmhouse. Downstairs is a well-equipped kitchen. Although a galley-style kitchen it really does have all the appliances and gadgets you need and works well for guests. Adjacent is a cosy living room for 4 / dining room for 6: the multi-fuel stove here burns coal and logs. Full oil-fired central heating throughout the house. There are decent-sized TVs, DVD players both upstairs and downstairs, ideal for guests with different viewing tastes. Guests also find having two living areas a real bonus. Ever encountered teenagers keen to get away from their parents and have their own space? Or vice-versa? The Wing is ideal for this.
A short flight of stairs leads up to the more traditional part of the house with old pine window panelling, working shutters and doors. A house of great character, guests remark on its lovely atmosphere. Leading off the passageway with views out over the lawn and trees are 3 bedrooms. A bedroom with great character with a double bed. At the far end of the upstairs corridor is a spacious second living room with a sofa bed and double bed, heaped with floral cushions for daytime relaxation. Facing windows invite both morning and evening sunshine. At the top of the stairs the third bedroom has very comfortable adult-size bunk beds. In this bedroom a solid oak original door, always kept locked when guests are in residence, separates the Wing from the landing and stairs belonging to the front of the house where we live as owners. All 3 bedrooms have enough floor space for a child’s cot. The bathroom has a power shower over the bath.
On request, we can supply a stairgate for toddlers for the foot of the stairs only.
