Torwoodhall was originally constructed as a substantial family home in the 1850s built for James Jones a timber merchant. It was acquired by Falkirk Councils predecessors in the late 1940s and was most recently used as a care home which was closed in 2021.

It should be noted that there would be a claw back provision In the event that the purchaser gains planning permission to substantially demolish the property. This is summarised in the two paragraphs below:

If the planning permission triggering purification of the suspensive condition is for residential development which retains the entire original 19th century buildings at Torwood Hall, the sale price will be as originally provisionally agreed, but a clawback clause will be inserted in the sale missives and sale disposition, whereby any further planning permission granted within 10 years after the date of entry under the sale (and which permits the demolition of all or part of the original 19th century buildings at Torwood Hall) will trigger an obligation on the then owner of the site to pay FC a clawback sum equal to 10% of the sale price.
