Penicuik EH26 8QDUnder Offer
A village edge house plot, with planning permission in principle, in a highly sought-after location, with adjoining paddocks (Lot 2)
Acreage Semi-rural - Penicuik
The plot (Lot 1) measures approximately 0.42 acres (0.17 Ha) and comprises a generally level area within the north-east corner of the current field. It is approached off the public road, by way of an existing field gate (which will be shared with Lot 2). It is partially enclosed by fencing on the north and east sides, with an adjoining house and garden to the north.
Views from the plot are to the west over the field (part of Lot 2), open surrounding farmland and distant views of the Pentland Hills.
The plot (Lot 1) is located on the north-west edge of the village of Howgate, which is small conservation village within south Midlothian. The area is predominantly rural, with a number of village houses close by to the north and south, but with open fields and views to the Pentland Hills dominating the surroundings. The plot is accessed off the B7026 public road, which runs north from the village and joins the A701, approximately three miles to the north, with Edinburgh City centre being approximately eleven miles north from the plot.
Howgate is a small, rural, conservation village, centred around a village green. The village benefits from excellent access to Edinburgh and as such is popular with commuters, however, it retains a real village community within a pleasant rural area. Larger town services are available in Penicuik, approximately two miles to the north-west, including primary and secondary schooling. Major out of town shopping is available at Straiton, approximately five miles to the north, along with Edinburgh Park and Ride facilities and connections onto the A720, Edinburgh City By-pass.
From the Straiton junction on the A720, Edinburgh City By-pass, head south on the A701, signposted to Penicuik. Continue towards Penicuik on the A701 at the “Gowkley Moss Roundabout” but just after, branch off to the left onto the B7026 at Auchendinny. Continue on the B7026 through Auchendinny and the hamlet of Loanstone. Approximately one mile beyond Loanstone, the road enters the Howgate “30” limit and the plot is on the right hand side at the bottom of the hill, before the roundabout.
