Development opportunity

This steading development enjoys rural location in the Scottish Highlands and lies approximately 6 miles south east of Nairn and around 20 miles north east of Inverness. The site comprises three plots extending over approx. 0.4 hectares (0.99 acres) in total. Planning permission has been granted through Highland Council for three houses under application number 13/01590/FUL (an extension of 08/00016/FULNA). The property has been partially developed although units 1 and 2 have been devastated by fire leaving only outer stone walls to a height of around 3 metres and likely to require demolition prior to any further development. The third unit has been developed to a basic standard and would require a further programme of works for completion. The site overall is in poor condition being covered in debris, boulders and roof sections. Independent valuation, whilst not reflective for any lending purposes, suggests that unit 3, once completed, would value in excess of £250K with a value of £80,000 each suggested for plots 1 and 2 once satisfactorily cleared. This is an ideal opportunity for a developer/builder to achieve significant added value on full completion of works.
