Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An excellent residential development site with planning permission for an attractive two storey 3 or 4 bedroom dwelling with en-suites in the quiet village of Evertown. This is an attractive rural area of Dumfriesshire, close to the England/Scotland border and a short drive from the A7, making local towns, the M6 and the City of Carlisle readily accessible.

The site is a paddock of approximately 1050 square metres with road frontage and mains services nearby and includes a useful timber framed barn of approximately 69 square metres. The barn presently provides stabling and storage, but subject to planning consent could provide a useful workshop, garage or numerous other uses. This is an ideal site to construct a quality family dwelling and gardens, with an outlook over agricultural land to the rear.

The site is situated in the small village of Evertown which is on the B6357 between the villages of Canonbie and Kirkpatrick Fleming for the A74(M) motorway north. The village is also just north of the England/Scotland border and close to the Eskdale valley. There is a doctor's surgery, post office/local shop and village school in Canonbie with the local towns of longtown and Langholm providing most required facilities, with all main amenities available in the City of Carlisle plus access to the M6 motorway.

For directions from Carlisle and the M6 at Junction 44, follow the A7 north through Longtown, over the River Esk and over the England/Scotland border. After the border take the second left at Canonbie and left again at the "T" junction, which will take you into Evertown. On entering the village the site will be seen on your right immediately after a white cottage.

Planning permission has been obtained dated the 13th January 2014 for the erection of a dwelling house. A copy of the planning consent and plan is available for inspection at the agent's office or online at Dumfries & Galloway Council Ref 08/10/2013 and Building Warrant 16/1307. The plans show a two storey dwelling with in-roof first floor dormer accommodation under a Welsh blue slate roof with the elevation part stone faced and part smooth rendered. On the ground floor the accommodation comprises:- entrance porch to entrance hall with staircase and leading to a side lobby and door. In addition living room, dining room or fourth bedroom, shower room, two cloaks cupboards, utility room with boiler cupboard and a good sized kitchen/breakfast room/family room with French doors to the garden. There are garden areas to the south, west and north with an access on the eastern boundary. A strip of ground leads around the neighbouring property to an existing barn. The highway boundary is to be a 0.90 metre high dry stone wall. This planning consent has been protected as a substantive start to the works has been made and a stage warrant for the foundations issued following inspection by the building inspector. This involved installation of the foundations for the front elevation wall.

A timber framed barn with corrugated iron sheets comprising~:-

Main Barn Area 17'6" x 24'6" (5.4m x 7.5m) approx.

Loose Box 13'6" x 24'6" (4.15m x 7.5m) approx.

Mains water, electricity and sewerage are available nearby and interested parties should make their own enquiries to the relevant provider regarding their suitability.

There is a right of way along the eastern boundary of the plot approximately as shown A to B to C on the site plan in favour of the neighbouring cottage.

There is an existing culvert crossing the site which will need to be moved or altered to facilitate construction. This culvert is shown on the site plan and may also be useful for disposal of surface water if it meets the necessary criteria. Clients have prepared plans for a smaller dwelling removing the rear extension but the first floor accommodation being enhanced by a rear facing dormer. This would mean the substantial culvert that crosses the site would not need to be diverted as shown on the Site Plan with this brochure.

The purchaser will maintain a stockproof boundary fence to the field to the rear (north and east).

The property does not a present have a postcode but based on a nearby property it is likely to be DG14 0TJ.
