Full description

Full planning permission was renewed on 14th August 2015 (15/P/1/0141) for the erection of a dwelling house with integral garage at Burnside Lane, Garlieston. The plans prepared on behalf of the seller provide for an architect designed one bed house with mezzanine seating area over the large kitchen living area, and an integrated garage with decking and low maintenance garden at the rear.
