Property Description

SITUATION
The site has an excellent location on the western edge of Selkirk, between Ettrickhaugh Road and the Ettrick Water.   Selkirk is located at the bottom of both the Yarrow and Ettrick Valleys and straddles the Ettrick Water shortly after it is joined by the Yarrow Water to flow in to the River Tweed.

Selkirk is the old County Town of Selkirkshire and provides a good range of services catering for everyday needs including shops, schools, sporting and recreational facilities. The town has many historical connections and indeed this development site is close to the place that the battle of Philiphaugh took place in 1645 when the Scottish Covenanters attacked the Royalist supporters of Charles I.

A popular cycle/footpath links Ettrickhaugh Road with Philiphaugh Old Mill and its fine water wheel café and salmon viewing centre. Other nearby attractions include both Selkirk’s cricket and rugby clubs and Bowhill House and Country Park. St Mary’s Loch is within a half hour drive.

Selkirk has good road links with Edinburgh via the A7 and the Borders Railway (with stations in both Galashiels and Tweedbank) has a regular train service to and from Edinburgh.

DESCRIPTION
This is a level residential development site which extends to about 1.8 acres and has been used for grazing and stabling in recent years.   The site is bounded by Ettrickhaugh Road to its northwest, Ettrick Water Mill Lade and woodland to its southeast and a popular public cycle/footpath to its northeast.

Existing houses in Ettrickhaugh Road are a mix of traditional and more modern detached and semi-detached properties.

The vendors have already undertaken the necessary site assessments including flood risk, drainage, utility and ecology. The Vendor can provide potential buyers with a service pack if desired.

PLANNING
Both Scottish Borders Council and Scottish Ministers have recently approved the residential development of the site. We have indicative site plans and drawings showing 6 detached dwellings in a low density development. However, it has been suggested that the site could cope with a higher density to tie in with the traditional semi-detached houses on the opposite side of Ettrickhaugh Road to the site. Planning Ref: 19/01687/PPP.

The trees to the southeast of the site are to be retained and the develpment of the land should enhance the locality.   

DIRECTIONS
From Selkirk Market Place head down West Port and keep going downhill until you cross The Ettrick Water. Ettrickhaugh Road is the first left turn after the river and the development site lies towards the far end of the road on the left.

VIEWINGS
Strictly by appointment with the selling agents.

SERVICES
Mains electricity, gas, water and drainage are all available in Ettrickhaugh Road.
