An excellent opportunity has arisen to purchase this prime building plot which occupies a glorious country setting within commuting distance of Aberdeen, Banchory and the south. Boasting a superb semi-rural location, this generous building plot extending to approximately five acres has full planning permission granted by Aberdeenshire Council for the demolition of the existing redundant steading and erection of a 1 ½ storey five bedroomed detached family home with detached triple garage with further development potential above. Copies of the relevant plans are available for inspection through the Selling Agent's Banchory office or from the sellers direct. Interested parties can also view the plans on the Aberdeenshire Council Planning Website (Ref: APP/2015/0670).

Durris is situated approximately 5 miles from Banchory. There are Primary Schools at nearby Crathes and Woodlands of Durris. Banchory is only 17 miles drive from the City with three access roads which adds to the inherent attractions of the town and makes property on Deeside much sought after. The town maintains a comprehensive range of shops and several excellent hotels and restaurants. The Primary and Secondary Schools have an excellent reputation and incorporate community and sports centres and a swimming pool.

Planning Permission Full planning permission has been granted for the erection of a substantial five bedroomed 1 ½ storey property with a floor area extending to approximately 260m² and a detached triple garage with further development potential above. Further details are available from the Aberdeenshire Council website (Ref: APP/2015/0670) or plans can be made available for inspection by appointment at the Banchory office. Although the current owners have only sought planning permission for one property, it is believed there is further development potential provided the relevant planning consents are obtained.

A well appointed shower room and separate cloakroom complete the ground floor. The upper floor accommodation comprises of two further double bedrooms and a bathroom with separate shower.
