Full description

Tenure: Freehold


PLEASE NOTE - The plot now has permission (16/00079/FUL) to allow the regrading of the pond sides to acheive safe gradients and the introduction of water levels controls.

Braemore Estates have undertaken the following works which will substantially lessen the build cost to the house builder, and importantly means that building can start as soon as the plot has been purchased, removing the uncertainty that often comes with buying an unserviced plot:

" Sites have been cleared of all former buildings and associated debris.
" Geotechnical and topographic surveys confirm the land is suitable for development for residential use with gardens.
" Ground profiling within each plot and stockpiling of top soil for use on soft landscaping areas
" Formation of kerbed and macadam surfaced access road to each plot entrance and including bellmouth entrance and school bus alighting point to local authority approved standards.
" Plot services (mains electricity, water and telephone) taken to within each plot and terminations protected and identified using marker posts.
" Porosity tests to confirm that the land is suitable for a private drainage system.
" Surface and groundwater management system agreed with SEPA and common drainage routes installed.
" Plot foul sewers taken to within each plot and terminations protected and identified using marker posts.
" Common foul water collection and treatment system including Klargester bio disc and mound soakaway system designed and installed in accordance with Building Regulations and SEPA discharge consent, backed by a building warrant and completion certificate.
" Stone entrance dykes built by local craftsmen.
" Tree management to preserve and make safe existing mature trees.
" Beech hedging to each plot.
" Detailed planning consent to each plot.

Changes to the approved plans can be made relatively simply and inexpensively.

Permission is currently being sought to partially fill in the pond to create a shallower one if required.

Once built, the houses at Donavourd will create an exclusive rural development of individually designed properties. Established trees and shrubs complement the gardens and provide privacy and a mature setting for each site. The other 4 sites have been sold and are in various stages of being built.

The remaining plot has plans designed by McKenzie Strickland Associates, for an open plan living with 5 bedrooms. The proposed house will be finished with harled and timber elevations beneath slate roofs. Full length windows will capture the views of the surrounding countryside. Large open plan
kitchens incorporating dining and sitting areas provide superb family living space in addition to the more formal reception rooms and useful utility space.

The plot has room for a generous garden, a double garage and ample parking, and the positioning of the houses within their sites will ensure a high degree of privacy.

cottage hospital, a dentist, and a well respected High School. For private education, Donavourd is within easy driving distance of Craigclowan, Strathallan, Kilgraston, Glenalmond, Ardvreck and Morrison's Academy.

wonderfully atmospheric 300-year-old pub.

Donavourd could hardly be better placed for those who enjoy the outdoors. Ben-y-Vrackie and Shiehallion to the north of the site, provide adventurous hill walking and mountain biking. There is skiing at Aviemore, Glenshee and Aonach Mor and a variety of water sports on Lochs Tay and Earn.

Salmon fishing is available in the tributaries of the rivers Tummel, Tay and Garry, and brown trout fishing is popular in the many hill lochs in the area. Pheasant and grouse shooting
are widely available to let locally. For golfers, Pitlochry has a beautifully situated 18-hole course with unparalleled views of the surrounding area.
