A rural lifestyle is right on the Monet
SITUATED just outside the village of Harburn in West Lothian is an amazi ng country property that seems to have it all – 14 acres, stables for eight horses, full size floodlit riding arena, enchanting stone summerhouse overlooking Camilty Water, weir and old mill, gazebo, fishing and shooting rights and beautiful formal gardens.
These grounds were designed in the 1930s to include three ornamental ponds, one of which is crossed by a wooden bridge creating a picture very similar to French artist Claude Monet’s paintings of the lily pond and bridge at Giverny.
Camilty Mill’s main house is also refreshingly different, with accommodation spanning over 3,000 square feet predominantly on one level, arranged around a central living area designed as a series of interconnecting rooms, starting from the dining kitchen, a sizeable updated farmhousestyle space fitted with granite topped oak cabinets, professional range- style dual- f uel cooker, integrated appliances and convivial central i sland dining table.
Much larger than it looks, this spacious family home is entered by a large vestibule with space and provision for boots, coats etc to be deposited before continuing into the reception hall, where a bespoke spiral staircase leads up to a 23ft multipurpose sunroom that makes the most of panoramic views of the gardens and grounds.
Off the hall are two en suite double bedrooms, cloakroom, games room with three doors out to the rear deck and garden beyond – the hall also has double doors opening out to the rear.
Off the other side of the hall is the dining kitchen, leading to a superb conservatory, living room with marble f i replace and a dining room. Three f urther bedrooms and a shower room complete the accommodation.
