Newburn Bothy, West Church Street, Fordyce,

Offers Over £ 89,000

We offer for sale this exciting development opportunity, which is situated in a rural location on the outskirts of the picturesque and highly sought after historic village of Fordyce.  The picturesque coastal towns of Cullen and Portsoy are only a short drive away where shops, supermarkets and amenities can be found.

Newburn is a haven of peace and tranquillity, offering fine views over the surrounding farmland, set in approximately 5.5 acres complete with a large building plot, a bothy, native woodland and a productive market garden.  A small burn runs along the eastern boundary of the plot.

This is a rare and exciting opportunity to purchase a building plot, which has planning permission for the erection of a detached one and a half storey Eco friendly dwelling with large barn/workshop.

The present owners currently occupy a bothy on the site where they have converted a container to provide a comfortable base for their needs.  The bothy has been insulated, it is externally and internally clad in wood and has a living area with wood burning stove, kitchen area  with gas hob (bottled gas) and a sleeping platform.  The last few years have seen the owners working exceptionally hard to establish their surroundings, creating a beautiful native woodland, a fruitful market garden which is well stocked with a variety of vegetables and a well balanced ecological system, which provides a habitat for many plants and various species of wildlife.  The owners are almost self sufficient with their small orchard of fruit trees, productive vegetable patch and a plentiful supply of fire wood.  They also have a chicken run, various poly tunnels and wooden sheds/workshops.

The plot is bounded by a shelterbelt of established trees and woodland and once completed the first floor accommodation will offer some spectacular views over the surrounding countryside towards the Moray Firth.

Planning permission was granted by Aberdeenshire Council in March 2020 under planning reference APP/2019/2356 for the erection of an architect designed 2 bedroom, one and a half storey detached dwellinghouse with larch cladding, sedum roof and a large detached workshop/barn also with larch cladding.  Lovely views over the surrounding farmland towards the Moray Firth can be appreciated from the site.

The plans and planning documentation can be made available for inspection at our Buckie Property Shop.
