This eco-friendly, inviting and well-proportioned, five-bedroom detached family home offers flexible living accommodation across two storeys, and is located within a modern and quiet development in Bathgate, West Lothian. The ground floor of the property comprises an airy entrance hall, good-sized living room, bright dining room, breakfasting kitchen, play room, spacious double bedroom, WC, and utility room, with the upper level consisting of a landing, four double bedrooms, en-suite shower room, and a family bathroom. Additional features include energy-efficient solar panels, gas central heating, uPVC double glazing, security alarm system, excellent storage, including built-in wardrobes and lofts, private front and rear gardens, integrated single garage, multi-car driveway, and unrestricted on-street parking. The 3.77kW solar panel system was installed in December 2011, and the property not only benefits from reduced electricity bills, but also receives payments every three months for the electricity generated via the Feed-in Tariff scheme. The Feed-in Tariff is guaranteed until 2036, and has averaged £1570 per year over the past three years (varies slightly depending on the weather). The Feed-in Tariff payments currently exceed the present owner's gas and electricity bills combined, and these payments will transfer to the new owner on purchase of the property. Situated in the long-established West Lothian town of Bathgate, the property is just a pleasant walk away from the bustling town centre, where a wide variety of high-street and speciality stores, along with an excellent range of amenities, bars, restaurants and cafés, are to be found. Aldi and Morrisons both lie within a one-mile radius of the property, with a Tesco supermarket a little further afield. Further extensive shopping is available in Livingston, roughly eight miles from the property. A choice of nursery and primary schools are walking distance from the property, and secondary schooling is available in Armadale, Bathgate or Blackburn. Bathgate has two golf courses, with Bathgate Golf Club to the south, and the Balbardie Park of Peace course to the north, with the park also hosting the local sports centre, with a wide range of facilities. A number of other golf courses can be found to the east, in the Uphall/Broxburn area, with another public park, Kirkton, to the south. Located within easy reach of the M8, Glasgow and Edinburgh are both within commuting distance by car or on public transport, with Bathgate railway station just over a mile away.
