Land for sale

Property description

• Development opportunity near the popular Highland town of Keith on the A95, Speyside Malt Whisky Trail.

• Comprising former kennels, outbuildings and house with grounds which extend to around 2 acres.

• Offering a flexible and versatile opportunity on an attractive roadside location with various development options subject to necessary consents.

• Currently the Moray area has significant demand for a range of housing types including family homes, affordable housing and holiday accommodation.

• Potential to acquire more land should purchasers wish.

The potential of this land and buildings cannot be over emphasised, located just off the A95 close to Keith, this plot of over 2 acres will lend itself to a myriad of opportunities subject to planning consents. Previously trading as a cattery and kennels, the business ceased trading some years ago and the buildings now require an upgrade. The site could however easily be reinstated to its former use as a cattery and kennels should new owners desire. This property is being presented to the market as a development opportunity encompassing the existing structures. The local countryside is very attractive, with rolling hills and farm land. The vendor believes that there may be the opportunity to purchase some adjoining land from a local landowner and is happy to make an introduction should this be of interest.

The main building is not listed nor is it in a conservation area. Internally the property has been utilised as living accommodation with the outbuildings being used as kennels. The internal aspects are in need of renovation, but the cottage itself is picturesque and would not take much to restore to its former glory. The outbuildings offer storage and the garden grounds are very pleasant, laid to mature plants and shrubs. We understand that the adjacent forestry commission land is to be cleared of the trees and this will open up the external aspects of the property beyond its borders, affording some attractive countryside views.

Reason for sale
The current proprietor has retired and wishes to sell the development, leaving new owners the opportunity to develop the land and buildings to their own preferences.
