Yvonne Fitzgerald Properties are delighted to bring to the market this exciting opportunity to purchase a small housing development within Ardgay in Sutherland.
Planning was previously in place for ten houses, and having sought pre application advice, planning will support development on this site for bespoke housing, which will have to be in keeping with the surrounding properties.
They would be looking for storey and a half, detached houses, with a pitched roof, with most probably slate tiles, to remain in keeping with the Gledfield Primary School which is located on the boundary of this exclusive development. It is also identified and zoned for housing in the local plan as it is very close to the school and is a gap site.
All the services are close by and run-in conjunction with the field so should not be too expensive to install. The ground is almost level so should not pose too much difficulty for small developers or a major building firm.
There are some open countryside views and it looks towards a church which has also now been converted. The site is accessed off a quiet road that goes up into the Scottish glens, and the village itself has a good community spirit. In Gledfield school at the moment there are only 25 pupils, so the children benefit from an excellent level of education. Secondary education can be found at Tain High School which is approximately 12 miles away. Tain has an Asda supermarket and an excellent range of shops, a golf course and is a short drive from the Royal Dornoch Golf Course.
Nearby in the village, Ardgay has a garage, coffee shop and is within a few minutes’ drive to Bonar Bridge where further facilities can be found.
Bonar Bridge is a picturesque town positioned on the northern bank of the Kyle of Sutherland in the Highland reaches of Scotland and is home to nearly a thousand people. Beautiful scenery of Heath and Moorland surround the town that dates as far back as the Bronze Age. History is remembered with the bloody battles fought in times past, remains of ancient hut circles and Cairns, and later the impressive bridge which spans the Kyle of Sutherland linking the town of Ardgay. Today' s visitors can enjoy the restaurants, bars, post offices, a convenience store, chemist, doctors’ surgery and interesting shops. There area is renowned for its pleasing walks where unforgettable wildlife is uncovered at every turn in this delightful pocket of Highland Scotland.
