For the self-builder looking to create an individual build in a fabulous countryside setting, this plot is bound to appeal. Extending to just under 0.25 acre and with outline planning consent granted for one dwelling house, the plot offers ample room for a sizeable family home with good garden grounds. The plot is located on the edge of a working farm with a handful of other conversions/new builds nearby which creates an exclusive collection of properties and a nice sense of community. There is currently an unused stone built stable/garage located to one corner of the plot and the planning consent states a preference for this building to be retained – it offers an obvious opportunity for conversion to a garage/studio or home office.
The plot has the benefit of outline planning permission and all planning documentation can be viewed online through the Scottish Borders Planning portal using reference 16/00797/PPP. There is the further advantage that the developers contribution has already been paid by the vendors.
Mains water and electric are available nearby. Drainage will be private to a shared septic tank.
The vendors have advised that there may be the option to rent some additional grazing land nearby
