Full description

Old Quarter Wood occupies a stunning, elevated position with unparalleled views down Glenholm. The plot extends to 1.0 acres and enjoys full planning consent for a contemporary 357 m2 (3,843 ft2), 5 bedroom, family home with a garage; designed by the award winning HebHomes. The site is wonderfully secluded and is one of Scotland’s hidden gems, affording unparalleled views over rolling hills and forests. Subject to amended planning consent, it may be possible to alter the existing design and layout; allowing the opportunity to create a stunning and bespoke new home.

Some initial ground work has already been completed allowing for a potential owner to gain a good understanding of the plot.

Detailed Planning Permission was approved by Scottish Borders Council in February 2015, application reference 15/00181/AMC. Planning applications are available to view through the Council’s website. https://www.scotborders.gov.uk/site/

A Notice of Initiation of Works has been submitted and a subsequent commencement of works on site has been formally acknowledged by Borders Council (11 May 2017), thus securing the consent.

Prospective purchasers are advised that they must make their own enquiries of the local authority.

Glenholm is situated approximately 3.1 miles from Broughton, a charming village in the Scottish Borders and it is best known as the one-time home of novelist John Buchan where the beautiful Border countryside was the inspiration for many of his novels. The village is also the location of the small cask ale Broughton Brewery.

In his book “A History of Peeblesshire” James Walter Buchan was moved to comment: ‘There are many glens like Glenholm in the Borders. They are all beautiful but Glenholm takes pride of place….because of a certain grace of setting….it is perfect in form’.

The village has a primary school, post office, petrol station, village store, art gallery and village hall, along with sports facilities such as Broughton Tennis and Bowling Club.

For more comprehensive shopping requirements, Peebles lies 13 miles to the north-east. In terms of local education, Peebles has 3 primary schools and a High School, which is recognised as one of Scotland’s top ranked state schools. The city of Edinburgh lies 33 miles to the north providing all of the cultural and shopping facilities associated with a capital city. For those wishing to work or shop in Glasgow, the M74 and Lanark train station lie 19.4 miles and 20 miles away respectively, providing easy access.
