As I have said previously, scrollbar issue is occuring only due to your use of DoubleBinding in layout.
I saw your code and I can confirm this is the main cause.
If you want a 15-85 % split, you should have used a GridPane with two columns with the given percentage constraints.
I have created a gist here to demonstrate it [1]. Preview it in Scene Builder. 
I would highly recommend you to play with javafx layout panes in scene builder and to use fxml for more of your layout than handcoding it.
