A magnificent, traditional farmhouse with a contemporary “Grand Designs” style barn conversion offering spectacular accommodation, finished to a truly exceptional standard, set within more than one acre of land.

This wonderful family home has been successfully created by the current owners with expansive open plan areas and a high specification finish blending seamlessly within one of Waterfoot’s most historic buildings.

Dating back to the early 1800’s Waterfoot Farm enjoys an enviable position within the idyllic hamlet of Waterfoot offering a high degree of privacy and easy access to a wide variety of local facilities including highly regarded primary and secondary schooling.

Displaying great attention to detail and high-quality craftsmanship throughout, Waterfoot Farm has been successfully redesigned and meticulously maintained to offer a pleasing selection of highly flexible accommodation that can evolve as family grow and develop with further potential for self-contained accommodation.

The original building, comprehensively refurbished and upgraded to a wonderous standard extends into the modern barn conversion delivering further extraordinary apartments with contemporary interiors.

The select position of the house, on the outskirts of Waterfoot will impress all with beautifully presented garden grounds, separate field and panoramic views over the White Cart River, Thorntonhall and beyond.

An impressive sweeping, gated driveway continues past the triple garage, which has been converted into a stunning home office with gym and provides the first glimpse at the true beauty of Waterfoot Farm that is totally unseen from the road.

Surely one of the finest semi-rural properties within East Renfrewshire, of a size and style seldom available on the open market, the agents would suggest that viewing is essential to appreciate fully Waterfoot Farm.

The accommodation extends to circa 4500 sqft and offers great flexibility with the original farmhouse providing three storey accommodation and the barn extension formed over two levels with focal point double height ceiling and gallery landing offering views over the ground floor sitting area below.

The accommodation comprises as follows: welcoming reception hall with under-stair storage cupboard, utility room, shower room and bedroom with en-suite. The family room is semi open plan to a well-appointed kitchen with Velux window formations and extends into a large dining room with French doors providing views of and access to the rear garden. An inner vestibule with cloakroom/WC leads to the barn conversion which has additional external entrances at both the front and rear of the building. The ground floor of the barn is almost entirely open plan with dining area, sitting area and fitted kitchen with centre island. There are masses of fitted storage and a utility cupboard.

The first floor of the barn benefits from a vaulted ceiling and offers a large landing with fitted storage, three generously sized bedrooms and shower room. The largest bedroom is especially impressive with a “wall of glass” façade and includes a walk-in wardrobe, en-suite bathroom and incredible large, covered balcony offering views over open countryside.

The first floor of the farmhouse is accessed from a beautiful traditionally proportioned staircase with cast iron balustrade and wooden handrail and includes a fabulous dual aspect family sitting room/home cinema, bedroom and family bathroom with access from both the hall and the bedroom, with four-piece suite whilst the second floor offers two further double bedrooms ensuring wonderful views and a large storage cupboard. The large landing also features Parisian style balcony and home library/reading area.

Waterfoot Farm has been awarded a Historic Environment Scotland commemorative plaque that sits proudly outside the entrance for former resident, Neil Munro, the notable Scottish author and journalist (of The Vital Spark and The Tales of Para Handy) and the current owners have sympathetically renovated the property to a very high standard ensuring the preservation of many period details which they have blended successfully with a very high specification finish with notable highlights being the installation of Nor Dan windows and doors, Kingspan installation, triple glazing, quality integrated appliances, Porcelanosa bathrooms, beautiful real wood flooring, low energy lighting, underfloor and gas central heating, CCTV security and security alarm system. The property has mains connected utilities and water all ensuring suitably low running costs for a property of this size.

The property sits within professionally landscaped and fully enclosed South facing garden grounds which incorporate an expansive gated gravel driveway providing an abundance of off-street parking and leading to the triple detached garage. This incredible multi-purpose space is currently used as a home office with gym area and features an additional kitchen area, cloakroom/WC and floored attic storage. Waterfoot Farm also has an attached and fully enclosed field with access from Eaglesham Road.

Waterfoot is a very desirable and well-respected location, situated mid-way between Eaglesham and Clarkston. The conservation village of Eaglesham is surrounded by unspoilt countryside yet within easy travelling of Glasgow, East Kilbride and Paisley, especially since the Southern Orbital link road has opened. The local amenities include a good selection of shops, garage, hotel, bars and eateries. Health care is provided by a local doctors and dentist. The school catchment area currently includes some of the highest attaining schools including St Josephs and Eaglesham Primary Schools and Mearns Castle and St Ninians High Schools. Clarkston has a wide variety of retail shops, banks/building societies, restaurants and a local Community Centre and Library. The road network provides easy access to East Kilbride, Glasgow and Paisley with the Clarkston railway station having regular train services to East Kilbride and Glasgow. Local sports amenities include several golf clubs, rugby clubs, tennis club, outdoor bowls, leisure/health club. Eastwood Theatre and swimming pool are both within travelling distance.
