The land at Balmore extends to approximately 1.44 acres (0.58 hectares) and is located to the north of the village of Ballinluig and approximately 5 miles to the south of Pitlochry in Highland Perthshire. The site occupies an elevated position with excellent views over the Tummel Valley. The site also benefits from excellent accessibility being a 2 minute drive from the A9 providing swift access to the south and the national motorway network at Perth. There are train stations at Pitlochry and Dunkeld offering regular services to Glasgow, Edinburgh and Inverness and a sleeper service to London Euston.
The site is accessed via private track leading from the minor public road to the north. The site itself comprises a ruined farmhouse and outbuildings, together with a small area of mature woodland that provides excellent screening and privacy. The subjects are a high amenity site and offer a purchaser a fantastic opportunity to build a substantial family home in a desirable rural location but with excellent accessibility.
There may be scope for additional development of the land subject to obtaining the necessary consents.
The site benefits from detailed planning permission for a substantial detached house and annex granted by Perth and Kinross Council on 14th March 2019 under ref: 18/02310/FLL. The seller has made an application in February 2022 to renew the planning permission under ref: 22/00275/FLL, and determination is expected by May 2022.
We are not aware of any specific tree preservation orders on the existing trees on the land and we would recommend that any purchaser checks the status of the trees with the local authority prior to any works.
A mains supply of electricity is located adjacent to the site, however, a new connection is required. A mains supply of water is available at the top of the track, drainage will be by means of connection to a private system.
