LOCATION
Eccles is a popular Borders village on the B6461 which links Kelso with Berwick upon Tweed. The village is surrounded by the rolling farmlands of the Merse. Village amenities include a church and a village hall with a wider range of amenities being found in nearby Kelso - including an excellent range of shops, social and sporting facilities.

Nearby Coldstream and Duns also provide a useful range of amenities. Eccles has good road links with Edinburgh, the northeast of England and Berwick upon Tweed/the main east coast railway line.

The surrounding countryside is noted for its scenic beauty and in addition to being rich in wildlife it contains a wealth of historic sites and stately homes - many of which are open to the public at various times of the year.

DESCRIPTION
The development site is in a key position within Eccles, opposite the village hall.

This is an L-shaped site adjacent to the old Eccles Mains Farm Steading and extends to approximately 0.45 ha/1.1 acres.

PLANNING
Detailed planning consent was issued in 2007 for the erection of five detached houses (ref; 06/02140/REM) and details can be seen on Scottish Borders Council’s website.

Foundations have been laid for one of the houses - a detached four bedroom house with double garage.

In addition, there has been positive feedback from Planning regarding the possibility of increasing the number of units on the site to eight.
