Property Details

 Extending over nearly 200 square metres and with courtyard parking for six cars, a south-facing garden of almost 1/3 of an acre of mature garden laid mostly to lawn, this completely renovated split-level farmhouse comprises four double bedrooms, one bathroom and one shower room, both with WC. 

  It is presented as three double bedrooms and a home office, all with white woodwork and jasmine walls.    The open plan 6x6m living and 6x3m dining room has vaulted 2.5m ceilings and sliding patio doors on both the north and south aspects, and long low windows to the west.    15-pane glazed doors separate living room from the hallway and kitchen, and the kitchen from the utility room.    The central heating system, comprising a 30kW natural gas fired high efficiency Vokèra condensing boiler and Stelrad radiators, was installed in November 2015 and carries the balance of a five-year manufacturers warranty.    The feature fireplace is provisioned for gas or electric fires, or a wood-burning stove.  The lined chimney is fitted with a rotating terminator.    The 6x4m German dining kitchen was fitted in 2005, so has been refurbished.  It includes a factory reconditioned Smeg dishwasher, fridge, five-burner hob and dual ovens, with a one and-a-half bowl sink and Franke monoblock mixer taps, and a breakfast bar at which four can be seated comfortably.  A new Faber extractor has been fitted over the hob.     The utility room has been completely renovated with generous cupboard space under a new single worktop of more than four metres in length, with double power outlets above and on the facing wall, and is 2.5x6m in size.    Vinyl flooring covers the utility, kitchen, shower room and bathroom, and a new tufted carpet in 'pewter' with underlay was fitted in the dining room, living room, hallway and all bedrooms at the end of April this year.    Philips LED lighting has been fitted throughout, including the outside lights, and six computer controlled HUE lamps in the living room are controlled from the relevant app installed on an iPad mini.    The smart gas and electricity meters also feed into the iPad via an app, and there is a wall-mounted display showing total energy use.    The electrical wiring system was upgraded and a new distribution board, wall sockets, switches and light fittings installed in January of this year.    One of the kitchen double sockets has two USB outlets for charging mobile devices.    Instantaneous electric water heaters, mounted in the relevant attics, supply the bathroom and shower room basins.    A south facing Sky dish is fixed to the northern gable end, and cabling has been provided to the living room and master bedroom.    A Category 5 Premises Cabling System connects every dry room in the house, and BT Broadband is available over WiFi with repeaters.    All six attics are ventilated and usable for storage, four have access hatches and ladders.    Three of the four have 18mm plywood flooring above the newly installed glass wool insulation, which varies in thickness between 300 and 320mm throughout the house - 150mm between the joists with either 150mm Isover G3 or 170 Knauf EcoRoll laid over.    All are lit with fluorescent lamps powered and switched from the lighting of the room immediately below.    The slated roof was extensively refurbished in 2010 with some slates replaced in August of this year.    The deep flow black PVCu gutters were installed in 2005 and have been regularly maintained and cleaned.    The downpipes are clear and the runaway pipes to the drains clear when surveyed by camera in 2012.    All the downpipes have guards fitted to ensure free drainage.    All domestic plumbing is new, uses WRAS approved plastic pipe from the appliances and taps to the internal and external mains shut off valves, and provides 10 litres per minute at 1 bar.    The water main to the roadway was also replaced in plastic in May 2015.    The waste water pipes around and behind the house were completely replaced in 2014 and carry the waste to a septic tank.    Grey water from the sinks and showers passes into gravel soakaways to the rear of the property, whilst the bath empties to the septic tank to ensure that the waste pipe is kept clear all year round.    Thermostatic mixers protect both showers and the standalone bathtub.  Both showers have adjustable rain heads fitted.    The shower room has an illuminated mirror with an electrical shaver outlet and anti-misting heater pad, which works only when the mirror is illuminated, all controlled by a contactless sensor on the mirror's underside.    The bathroom has a heated and illuminated mirrored cabinet with an electrical shaver outlet.    Its anti-misting heater pads work only when the mirror is illuminated, and a contactless sensor on the cabinet's underside controls that.    Both the shower room and the bathroom have ceiling-mounted extractor fans.   The bathroom and shower room have fused isolators fixed externally at high level- the bathroom's in the hallway bookcase, the shower room's in the cloakroom--to isolate the extractor fan and mirror.    PVCu double-glazing is fitted throughout, the cavity-sealed units are intact and internal and external sealing strips were replaced in August this year, as required.    The front, rear and both sets of PVCu sliding patio doors are in good order and are fitted with five-barrel locks.    At its deepest point the back garden is some 22m by 56m wide, and tapers from west to east to the boundary of the adjacent property and the stream to the rear of the hedge.  The garden is wholly south facing.    There is a patio area of coloured textured flagstones with gravel adjacent to the house and to the east, where a fenced area of grass is suitable for dogs, or as a play area for small children.    A 2 x 5m stand-alone wooden summerhouse is in good order, and provides adequate storage for garden tools and furniture.    An Ademco Microtech Galaxy 8 alarm control panel with DualCom remote monitoring board, which is connected to the remote monitoring operations centre, protects the property via two Infra Red beam detectors, door contacts and shock sensors on all window frames.  The alarm is currently configured with an A, day setting, where everything is armed, and B, night setting, where the beams are disabled to allow free movement around the house.  Three discrete panic buttons for instant alarm are sited at the front door, in the master and adjacent bedrooms.        Renfrewshire Council property reference 60662352    Valuation Band G    Council Charge £1,941.15  Water charge £327.00  Sewerage charge £379.50  Total = £2,647.65 which equates to £146.00 per month
