Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An excellent residential building plot with planning consent for a luxury four bedroom family house and mains services already in situ. The site extends to over 950 square metres and is situated adjoining agricultural land and a small development of quality detached housing. Although located in a rural area on the outskirts of the village, the plot is readily accessible to the
A74(M) motorway for access to local towns and Carlisle.

The accommodation could be altered to the purchaser's requirements but at present, the proposed layout includes entrance hall, sitting room, dining room, kitchen living room, sun room, utility room, separate W.C. and a ground floor bedroom or study with en-suite shower room. On the first floor, three further bedrooms with a family bathroom and an en-suite shower room. There is an integral garage, garden and off street parking plus views available over the surrounding countryside.


Eaglesfield is a rural village in Dumfriesshire with local facilities including a primary school, shop and public house and readily accessible to Junction 20 of the A74M. The motorway gives excellent access north to Lockerbie or south to Gretna and Carlisle where most required facilities and amenities are available.

From Junction 20 of the A74M, head north east into the village of Eaglesfield along the B722. On entering the village, proceed passed the right turning to Burnswark Villas and after approximately 100 metres take a right turning into a lane on the right. Proceed to the end of the lane. For satellite navigation purposes, a suitable postcode is DG11 3PH (nearest dwelling).

Planning consent is in place for a detached dwelling on the site, which is protected as elements of the planning consent have already been completed. Details are available from the Dumfries & Galloway Planning & Environment Services website under Reference 07/P/4/O316 or 93/TP/40146. Further details are also available by email on request.

The proposed dwelling is a two storey building with front and rear facing dormers similar in style to the neighbouring dwelling. As residential planning consent has been established it would be feasible to amend the design and potential purchasers should make their own enquiries at the local planning authority (details above). Extracts from the plans showing the proposed dwelling have been reproduced in these sale particulars and are for guidance purposes only.

The site extends to over 950 square metres because it also includes part of the access road, over which there is a right of way for the neighbouring agricultural land and the completed dwelling to the east. This access does not affect the curtilage of the dwelling as shown by the enclosed site plan. In addition there is a right of way over the remainder of the access road to the public highway. The site is shown approximately edged and hatched in red on the aerial photograph with the sale particulars, which is reproduced courtesy of a licence from Promap (Getmapping PLC 2013).

Mains water, electricity and sewerage plus a telephone line are already on site.

Early vacant possession is available.
