Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Rare opportunity to acquire a building plot with the benefit of existing planning consent in delightful Conservation Area. About 0.95 acres (0.385 ha)


Lasswade is a well-established and sought after residential district, approximately 7 miles south of Edinburgh city centre. There are excellent facilities in the area with good local shopping and schooling and a range of recreational and leisure facilities, as well as a number of golf courses including Kings Acre, Broomieknowe and Melville Castle. Nearby lies Mavisbank, Rosslyn Glen and the famous Rosslyn Chapel, while the Pentland Hills offer a variety of picturesque walks and the Hillend dry ski slope. Various excellent independent schools are within easy reach, including Merchiston, George Watson's, St. Margaret's, Fettes and Loretto. Lasswade is also well located for access to the City Bypass, with connections to Edinburgh Airport and the Central Scotland motorway network.


This exceptional site is located within the Lasswade and Kevock Conservation Area and is a rare opportunity to acquire a consented site. Formerly amenity land to the lovely nearby Barony House, this is a generally level site surrounded by mature trees. Planning consent was originally granted by Midlothian Council Reference 07/00236/FUL which superseded a previous consent 04/0049/407/FUL for the erection of a substantial, single private residence on two floors. Work on the site was commenced a number of years ago and was suspended but the superstructure and foundations are in situ. Prospective purchasers have the option of building out the original design and plans which were created by the well respected Simpson & Brown Architects or else they could resubmit for planning and start afresh. Full plans are available on request. The proposed accommodation of the intended house was over two floors, extending to approximately 4,000 sq ft and providing exceptional and stylish family accommodation.

Access to the property is by driveway from the public road.
