The plot is situated to the south of Peebles town centre and the River Tweed, in a popular residential area close to all Peebles town amenities. Priorsford Primary School lies close by the plot, while Peebles High School is within easy walking distance.
Peebles is a thriving market town set on the River Tweed and surrounded by magnificent countryside. It lies approximately 25 miles south of Edinburgh which makes it popular with commuters and families. Local buses travel on a regular basis into Edinburgh city centre, in addition to Galashiels to the east. It retains a full range of shops and services and an abundance of outdoor pursuit opportunities, including fishing, hillwalking, trail running and mountain biking, with the famous mountain biking location of Glentress Forest situated 2 miles to the east of the town.

The plot is a level site which totals approximately 0.068 Ha (0.17 acres) and is separated from Plot 2 (now developed) by a wooden fence. Mature trees and shrubs lie to the south east and south west while the access road leading from Kingsmeadows Gardens lies to the north of the plot.

The plot is fully serviced with mains water, electricity and mains drainage. Mains gas is available.

The current owners would be willing to assist a purchaser by way of a design only or design and build option in addition to any sale. Detailed plans may be available to be developed with a potential purchaser

Access to the plot from Kingsmeadows Gardens is via a shared driveway with Plot 2 (Please note that the blue shading on t he sales boundary map is indicative only. The title plan contained within the Information Pack is the only plan which can be relied upon). Pedestrian access over this is also granted to Rose Cottage. The shared access will need to be finished on completion of the Plot 1 construction.

The plot benefits from Planning Permission in Principle for a single detached house, granted by Scottish Borders Council on 5 April 2017 (Application Ref:16/00021/PPP), subject to various conditions. A detailed Planning Permission application will be required.

As part of the planning permission, there is a “developer contribution” requirement. This is to be confirmed, based on the final design, and should be paid by the developer to Scottish Borders Council prior to occupation.

The plot will be sold with all necessary rights of access from the public road, subject to agreed maintenance obligations.

A PDF information pack, including copies of the Planning Permission, related drawings and details of access, is available from the selling agents to interested parties who are able to demonstrate proof of funding.
