The site is located within the hamlet of Noranside nestled within the heart of Angus in the East coast of Scotland, enjoying some of the most beautiful countryside in the region. Noranside is situated close to the A90 Dual Carriageway linking Aberdeen and Dundee. The town of Forfar is located around 9 miles from the site and offers a wealth of amenities including shops, supermarkets, restaurants, Hospital and leisure activities. Kirriemuir is also close by, around 9 miles and again has a great deal of amenities on offer including Webster High School. It is believed Noranside would be served by primary school education at Tannadice primary school. There are bus services to these schools as well as a public service to Forfar.

The area provides for a range of outdoor pursuits including hillwalking, fishing, with shooting and stalking available nearby, in addition to access to a wide range of quality golf courses to suit all abilities.
Aberdeen is some 48 miles to the north, and provides all the leisure, recreational and entertainment facilities expected from the Oil Capital of Europe. It also provides good transport links with a mainline railway station and is host to an airport providing both domestic and international flights.
Dundee is some 24 miles to the south and again enjoys all the leisure, recreational and entertainment facilities. Dundee is currently undergoing a mass re-generation project within the river side area to include a Victoria and Albert museum, new hotels and leisure attractions. A new railway station is under construction and Dundee also benefits from an airport with flights to London and Jersey.

The site forms part of a large country estate formerly run as a government facility and enjoys a superb elevated position facing south over the Angus countryside. Noranside is believed to date back to around 1830 and Noranside House itself was originally constructed along with later editions added including The Stable Block, Walled Garden and Gardener’s Cottage. The site in total measures approximately 53 acres including policies with further amenity land potentially available. Extensive planning research has been carried out to ascertain the possibilities of redevelopment, which we have outlined on the information plan. This shows the entire 53 acre development divided into 6 individual lots which has been carefully thought through to work sympathetically with the historical buildings. All together, this shows an exciting development opportunity which includes both traditional building conversions and new home sites.
The main focal point of the development is the striking, ‘B’ listed Noranside House which was constructed and extended in the late 18th century, believed to be designed by Dundee architectural practice, Maclaren, Sons and Souter.
There are 4 separate access roads to the development, which provides clear distinctive entrances. Mans water and electricity are within the estate.

The development opportunities are being sold subject to planning and it will be the responsibility of any buyer to satisfy themselves on any planning requirements. Over recent times there has been extensive discussions with Angus Council planning department and as such there is an extensive planning history.

For further information please contact the selling agents.

All interested parties are advised to investigate the availability of utility services to the site and capacities thereof.

The access road between Finavon House and Gardener’s Cottage is available under separate discussion and negotiation.
