Newton Building Plot lies in the scattered hamlet of Skye of Curr close to Dulnain Bridge in the Cairngorms National Park. The plot is in a beautiful setting and within the fringes of the Caledonian pine forest, its ancient trees providing a magnificent backdrop to the house and providing a habitat for native wildlife.
Newton Building Plot is perfectly positioned to enjoy the National Park and both Rothiemurchus and the Cairngorms Ski Centre are nearby offering activities in the surrounding countryside and on the mountain ranges throughout the year. In addition, there are five excellent inland golf courses within easy reach and fishing is available on the world famous River Spey.
Grantown-on-Spey offers a wide range of services including schooling up to secondary level and Aviemore has a mainline railway station and intercity bus routes. Inverness is less than one hour’s drive to the north and provides all the services of a major city including its airport with regular links to the south and Europe.
Detailed planning consent was granted on 11th April 2019 https://wam.highland.gov.uk/wam/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=documents&keyVal=P5L5U2IHMUG00 for a contemporary 3 – 4 bedroom house with separate garage. The house, which has been positioned to get the sun all day, has been designed for modern day family living and to maximise the natural light. There is an open plan living area with a sun room with doors to the garden and a glazed roofed terrace, a separate sitting room provides a more formal reception room, while the study offers potential for use as a fourth bedroom to supplement the three first floor bedrooms.
A sensitive planting scheme around the house forms part of the planning consent and allows the house to sit comfortably in its woodland setting.
Drainage, electricity and water are all within 20 metres of the site and, currently, the site is pegged out, has a ramped access and a hardcore base.
