Set in a lovely rural location on the outskirts of the idyllic coastal village of Inveraray, Ladyfield Farm offers buyers an opportunity to acquire approximately 7 acres of land with planning permission for a new family dwelling.
A private track leads from the road across a private bridge, giving access to the land, which includes a paddock for horses or livestock, a large area of hardstanding, a caravan and various sheds and a pond.
The original property has now been demolished and the site prepared for the construction of a new architect designed family dwelling.
An existing stone barn with traditional slate roof is also situated on the land, offering an additional opportunity for conversion to accommodation, subject to the necessary planning consents.
The land offers an ideal opportunity for those seeking a change of lifestyle, with the opportunity to become self-sufficient in this tranquil setting. A combination of a new build property with converted barn gives scope for bed and breakfast or holiday let accommodation, offering significant income potential.
Two sets of planning permission have been approved for the land. Planning Permission was approved on 27th January 2016 for erection of dwelling house and rehabilitation of ruinous outbuilding to form additional accommodation, garage and workshop. Further Planning Permission was approved on 21st June 2018 for demolition of existing dwelling house and erection of a new property in its place.
More details on both applications can be found on the Argyll and Bute Council website using reference(s) 16/00267/PP & 18/01415/PP. Alternatively, details can be made available from the sole selling agents by request.
Services to the land include mains electricity, private water supply and private drainage.
