Full description

Tenure: Freehold

14 West Mains Crofts is a large fully serviced 1.7 acre building plot complete with a separate 1 acre paddock, set within an exclusive private rural development of 9 houses in West Lothian. The generous plot offers the flexibility of an expansive garden utilising the full 1.7 acres or the option of having a second paddock/training school adjacent to stables at the rear of the house.

* PURCHASE PRICE INCLUDES £50,000 of services already installed including electricity, water, telephone, drainage, access road, complete perimeter boundary fencing, gates, boundary hedge row screen planting. Price also includes additional 1 acre paddock which has a separate title deed.

The building plot is fully serviced with 3 phase electricity, mains water and BT connections. The plot boundary is fenced, gated and fully planted with hedging and an access road has been rolled through the plot. The separate 1.0 acre paddock is fully fenced and the access gate is opposite the building plot gate to enable direct transfer of horses from the paddock to the plot/stable. A water supply has also been provisioned in the paddock for connection to the plot mains water supply.

The generous plot easily accommodates a large house, multi car garage, agricultural shed and stable block. The plot offers flexibility and will allow the entire 1.7 acre area to be used as a garden or the option of reducing the garden area to allow a second paddock to the rear of the plot. The split could allow a 0.8 acre building plot and a 0.9 acre paddock. The layout chosen by the purchaser may also permit an equestrian training area.

The outline planning permission allows the purchaser to submit an application for development as detailed in the agreed and published design brief (planning reference 1191/ARM/08). This is the only available plot within a nine plot development - current houses vary from bungalows (maximum floor area 300m2) to seven bedroom two storey designs (maximum floor area 500m2). Other outbuildings are also permitted such as detached garages and agricultural sheds/stables. Detailed planning permission for this plot has been previously granted for a 380m2 bespoke house, 150m2 detached garage with accommodation above and a 160m2 agricultural shed. There is active planning permission and building warrant in place for the 16x10m agricultural shed.

The building plot enjoys an elevated position in a woodland setting with wonderful panoramic views to the North and East as far reaching as the Pentland and Ochil Hills.

West Mains Crofts is located approximately 2.5 miles to the West of West Calder. From the town centre, proceed out onto the A71, then turn left onto the A704 signposted for Lanark. Then take a left turn signposted Woolfords/Cobbinshaw/Tarbrax. Stay on this road, past Rusha Farm and approximately 0.5 miles, turn left into the West Mains Croft development.
