This 0.259 Acre plot sits adjacent to the converted steading buildings at Hardacres Farm which sits on the brow of the hill, with impressive views. A cleverly designed property (subject to relevant permissions) could easily provide a private family home in an idyllic rural location. There is also has a stone outbuilding which sits on the east most point of the plot. The planning documentation can be accessed via the Scottish Borders Council Public Access Portal with the Planning Reference number 16/00797/ppp.
