About this property
Charming, secluded one acre plot on the edge of town. It is ready for a buyer to cultivate and curate it for wildlife. Now fallow, it has much natural growth attracting deer and a great variety of birds. The western side, up to the stream, has many tall alders. Reducing the height of some of these would open up south westerly views to the hills. The field was once good rough pasture.
The old clay drains have ceased to function and there are parts that might benefit from new drainage. It is anticipated that the southern side of the field will see the creation of 4 houses accessed from Barhill Road. It is the remaining two thirds of the field that form this large plot. It is on land identified for housing within the local Development Plan together with a very small number of other extensive plots still available. It is to be sold serviced by water, electricity and mains sewage. A gas supply is available.
The plot is reached by a private road leading to its own gateway into the field. The same road leads to Barrhill Wood. Formerly commercial forestry, it is now naturally mixed. It is a haven for much flora and fauna and has a network of interesting paths and tranquil places. The Barrhill area continues to be the most sought after part of town.
Across the Barhill Road is the entrance to the much loved Colliston Park, with its play areas, tennis courts and football pitches. From there it is an easy stroll into the town centre.
