Rare and exciting development opportunity, of large detached traditional villa set within extensive garden grounds. ’Green Gables’ is located within the popular village of Laurieston on the outskirts of Falkirk and is well placed for local amenities. The property is in a state of disrepair and requires extensive work both internally and externally. The building at present is deemed non-habitable and is not suitable for mortgage purposes, so is being sold as a development opportunity. The property is set within large stone walled gardens, and the current owner has had planning permission granted in August 2018, to convert the building into three, 3 bedroom apartments. Planning has also been granted to build two 3 bed detached villas within the garden grounds. The site also offers the opportunity of a small bespoke development of new build properties, if the current detached villa was demolished. This would be subject to the relevant permissions and building consents through Falkirk Council, and this has not been investigated, and no warranties are implied. The site itself extends to approximately 1170 square metres, just under 0.29 of an acre, and sits in a popular, elevated spot. Internal viewing of the property is not available due to health and safety issues. However external viewing of the property and site is available and recommended.
The subjects are situated within the village of Laurieston which enjoys a village atmosphere with a mixture of new and more established housing. Laurieston is well placed for the commuter, with a mainline railway station in Polmont and Falkirk giving access to Edinburgh, Glasgow and beyond. The M9 motorway gives access to the greater part of central Scotland. For the family, there are primary and secondary schools, leisure, recreation and shopping facilities available in Falkirk, along with the newly opened Helix featuring the world famous Kelpies.
