Description of Land
Block of land extending to about 4.3 acres. It is down in grass. It is graded 3.1 as per the Macaulay Institute and Classifications. Four house plots were sold off the field down its eastern boundary leaving a 5 metre access into the field.
Lots 2,3 & 4
This block of land extends to 64.8 acres (26.23 hectares) in total. It is very level and is graded as per lot 1 by the Macaulay Land Survey. The field can be subdivided into three or more lots and the sub division is open for discussion. Any sub division would likely have to be fenced off at the purchasers cost (shared with the neighbour) and maintained on a 50/50 basis.
For sale in lots
The reason for making some of the lots into around 20 acres blocks, is that prospective purchasers would stand an excellent chance of securing planning consent for a house if they were to build 20 stables for 20 livery horses and a mobile home on the lands for two years, whilst running “an equestrian business”. Many planning consents, for three section 75 equestrian occupancy houses has been given for this ‘housing in the countryside’ Scotland for blocks of land over 18 acres. Recently the Council Planners have not imposed a long term business occupancy condition on consents after the houses have been built due to eec law intervention. It’s a great way of securing a cheap house plot in the countryside in the middle of a 20 or so acre block of land. Please phone Rod McCrae for more information.
Access Roads and Services
Clearly the cost of installing the roads in from the existing reasonable metaled farm track (about £3.50/ton for type 1) is relevant as a location for the stables central to the field would be preferable. McCrae & McCrae Ltd have applied for quotes for mains water and electricity connections and servitude for these servitudes will be reserved for all purchasers if the lands are sold in lots.
General Location & Amenities
Flatlands Farm sits equidistance between Perth & Dundee. The land lies a field away from North of Errol village which provides a local shop, pubs and basic facilities.
