Development opportunity

This is a unique opportunity to purchase this substantial plot which includes a former farmhouse, a serviced cottage, byre and stables and which boasts stunning panoramic views over the neighbouring farmland out to the sea and beyond to the neighbouring islands.



The cottage has mains electricity and water but will require a full program of modernisation.

There is recently lapsed planning to convert the cottage into self-catering accommodation (OIC Ref 15/251/PP). The plans show an open plan living room/kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and entrance porch.

The property extends to 2779m² or thereby. The beautiful location and fantastic low Guide Price will ensure that there will be high levels of interest so early viewing and enquiries are strongly advised.
