The plot has an attractive location on the south western edge of Clovenfords and is bounded by Millbank Road, the Caddon Water and the A72. The site of "the Luggie" where John Leydon taught in 1792 lies immediately to the west of the plot.
Clovenfords lies approximately 3 miles to the west of Galashiels and is a popular Borders village with a shop, hotel and recently completed primary school. Secondary schooling is in Galashiels, which also has a wide range of shops, sporting and recreational facilities. The Waverley Rail Link between Galashiels and Edinburgh is due to re-open in September 2015. The countryside around Clovenfords is popular for outdoor pursuits including hill walking, mountain biking, horse riding, golf and fishing.
Millbank Road adjoins the roundabout in the centre of the village and this plot is at the far end of Millbank Road, across the old stone bridge over the Caddon Water.
This is a spacious residential plot with planning permission in principle for a single detached bungalow. The planning reference is 13/00266/PPP.
There is a strip of trees between the plot and the Caddon Water which will shield the plot from the modern house (Red Rocks) on the opposite side of Caddon Water. There are also trees between the plot and the A72.
The developer contributions will be paid by the purchaser and we understand that these will be around £16,195.
The plot is fairly level and mains services are available nearby. It appears that services could be brought to the plot via either Millbank Road or the A72 and the cost of servicing the plot will be borne by the purchaser.
