A vast and vibrant plot of land available right on the boundary of the picturesque town of Peebles, which covers 900 square metres and includes planning permission for a three/four-bedroom detached bungalow. This exciting and rare opportunity presents buyers with the chance to develop a dream country home from the ground up in a sublime, elevated locale. Framed by mature trees and breath-taking countryside views, with open farmland and rolling hills, it forms the perfect backdrop for a family home. Situated on the perimeter of the town, the sprawling plot offers a sought-after rural lifestyle that is well connected to local services, within easy reach of thriving amenities and with direct road links to the capital for easy commuting. This unique opportunity allows buyers to play a central role in the development of their family home, allowing direct input into its layout, specification, and interior design – ideal for anyone with a creative vision. Whilst the country home will need to be designed sympathetically to fit in with the local area and substantial neighbouring houses, there is endless scope for innovation, as well as potential to go from a single storey property, to a storey-and-a-half, chalet-style bungalow. Both options would provide buyers with generous accommodation thanks to the considerable dimensions the plot of land offers. Furthermore, the site lends itself well to a variety of styles, proving easy to imagine the finished article, whether as a more contemporary home with oversized windows and light-filled interiors fronted by Juliet balconies or as a traditional cottage-like property with a classic arrangement and log-burning stoves for cosiness. Adding to the expansive sense of scale, the vast plot is sloped and bathed in warm sunlight throughout the day. Covering 900 square metres, it allows substantial gardens following the construction of the home – ideal for alfresco dining and playing children, especially with the outstanding vista that’s guaranteed to inspire. The plot comes ready with a detached single garage, which can handily be utilised for storage during the construction phase of the property. Alternatively, this garage can be removed if the buyer requires.
