Property Description

An opportunity arises to purchase a freehold building plot situated in an elevated location enjoying views over the town towards the Score Valley and out across to the sea in the distance. The plot amounts to approximately 0.14 acres (573m2) and sits in a popular residential location. Planning consent has been granted under application number 73513 on the 24th March 2022 for a pair of detached contemporary houses. Our client intends to retain one plot and build the proposed house for their own occupation whilst this subject plot is offered for sale. The proposed property for the plot will comprise 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom accommodation arranged over three floors together with an integral garage and in addition the house has its own private driveway at the front which provides further off road parking. There are also good sized gardens and amenity areas, including balconies at both the first floor and garden level and further gardens beyond to the rear. As the plot sits in an elevated position, there are very good far reaching views over the town out towards the Score Valley and countryside and also out towards the sea in the distance.

The property has been designed by well-known local Architects Peregrine Mears and as mentioned above, each proposed house has accommodation arranged over three floors to suit the topography of the site. The second floor (entrance level) comprises an entrance hall with useful storage and an impressive light well feature allowing plenty of light to flood in. There is also the master bedroom suite with its own en suite shower room. The integral garage is also on this level and that interconnects with the main entrance hall. A floor down, on the first floor, is where the main living accommodation lies. The heart of the home is the spacious light-filled kitchen/family/dining room and a further living room which has an expanse of glass from floor to ceiling taking full advantage of the superb views. From the living room there is also a door out onto a good-sized balcony which has a glass balustrade. There is also an office or additional guest bedroom and a utility room and a cloakroom/toilet provide handy facilities on this floor as well. On the ground floor (garden level), there are three further spacious bedrooms, a shower room and a separate family bathroom, plant room and laundry. The larger of the three bedrooms could be used as an extra living room if desired and there is access from here out onto a rear balcony.

The gross internal floor area for the house is approximately 207m2 (2,228ft2) overall, with the integral garage adding a further 23m2 (248ft2). The house will be of a contemporary design with attractive detailing and finished with rendered walls on the north and south elevations (left and right sides) and timber cladding on the east and west (front and rear) elevations. There is a pitched natural slate roof with a central flat sedum green roof system as well. As mentioned above, outside, the house will have its own front drive with parking for at least two vehicles. The gardens surrounding the property are predominantly amenity lawns.

We understand from the vendor that all of the mains services are close by.

The site is located close to the Cairn Nature Reserve which is ideal for dog walkers or a leisurely afternoon stroll. The high street is approximately 1/4 mile away and the sea front approximately 1/2 mile away. There is also good access to the local bus route and the town's park gardens as well.

The proposed detached house would be popular in today's property market with very good re-sale prospects. We would anticipate the finished house would command a market value in the region of £625,000 - £650,000 depending on the final specification, quality of finish and market conditions at the time.

The full planning application and associated documents for the proposed new houses (App No: 73513) are available to view online at by following the 'Planning' links. Alternatively those documents and the plans can be made available upon request.
