Property Description

A fantastic opportunity to acquire a paddock extending to approximately 0.0158 ha (0.39 acres) or thereby (coloured green on the plan), located on the periphery of this pretty Berwickshire village, set within the Westruther Development Boundary as defined in the Scottish Borders Local Plan 2016.Accordingly residential development is likely to be considered favourably by the Development Management Section of Scottish Borders Council.Distances: Edinburgh 33 miles Earlston 13 miles Duns 10 miles Kelso 16 milesBerwick Upon Tweed 25 miles (All distances are approximate)SituationThis Residential Development Opportunity is situated at Westertoun, positioned in a lovely rural setting on the periphery of the popular village of Westruther, with fabulous views over the surrounding countryside. The property enjoys a peaceful setting and offers the best of both worlds, with it’s rural yet readily accessible position. Westruther itself is a lovely small rural village set at the southern edge of the Lammermuir hills, which provide an idyllic backdrop to the surrounding countryside, and boasts a range of amenities including a primary school, church, village hall, and the popular Old Thistle Inn public house. The nearby towns of Lauder, Duns, Kelso and Melrose provide a wider range of shops and amenities, restaurants and recreational facilities. The highly regarded Secondary Schools of Earlston High School and Berwickshire High School in nearby Duns are easily accessible.On a broader note, the Scottish Borders offers a quality of life that is second to none and in an area of 1800 square miles there is certainly plenty of space to enjoy our beautiful unspoilt countryside and individual towns. Leave the congestion and overpricing behind and discover for yourself what a fantastic place the Borders is to live, work and play. Home to world class activities and attractions, it’s no wonder that the area is so popular with visitors who come here to enjoy mountain biking at Glentress, salmon fishing on the Tweed, walking in our hills and forests or diving off the Berwickshire coast. The area is also known for its’ spectacular Common Ridings, when whole communities come together to celebrate each town’s individual heritage and to cheer on hundreds of horses and riders every summer. The Borders is also a heartland of rugby in Scotland, with the names of our local towns being synonymous with the game and of course Melrose being the original home of rugby sevens. From our historic towns to rural villages, wherever you go you will be struck by the warmth of the welcome in our communities and the real pride people have in living in this wonderful part of the world. With good transport links, an excellent education system and stunning countryside, a move to the Scottish Borders really could be the best move of your life.ServicesThere is currently only a metered water trough to the plot.Local AuthorityScottish Borders Council Headquarters, Newtown St Boswells, Melrose, TD6 0SA.
