Occupying an elevated site on the edge of Loch Laggan, this is a very rare opportunity to acquire an outstanding plot with full planning permission granted by the Highland Council for the erection of a stunning contemporary home and separate studio designed by the acclaimed architect, Patrick Bradley. Set in approximately 1.7 acres of spectacular Highland countryside with breathtaking south-facing views over Loch Laggan towards Ardverikie House (well known from the BBC drama Monarch of the Glen), viewing is recommended to appreciate the full experience of the site location and potential.
The village of Laggan, approximately 5 miles away and the towns of Newtonmore and Kingussie are thriving towns with an excellent selection of shops for everyday living. In Kingussie there is a modern medical centre, primary and secondary schools and hotels and restaurants. Kingussie and Newtonmore offer easy access via the A9 to the South and North and Inverness has daily flights to London and many regional airports. Kingussie is also a mainline railway station with a number of daily trains to all major destinations. Caledonian sleeper trains are available from Tulloch and Newtonmore. The area is peaceful and tranquil with well-known hill walking, cycling and skiing facilities including The Cairngorms, Nevis Range and Laggan Wolftrax. Grouse shooting, deer stalking and salmon fishing are all available locally and there are excellent golf courses in the neighbouring villages.
Detailed planning permission was agreed with the local Highland Council Planning Authority for the construction of a bespoke home and separate studio by renowned architect Patrick Bradley.
The proposed house has planning consent for the following accommodation:
Lower Ground Floor:
Entrance Hall l Covered Car Port l Utility l Cloak Room l Study/Bedroom 3 l WC l Master Bedroom with En-Suite Bathroom & Dressing Room l Store/Hot Press l Guest Bedroom with Jack and Jill Wet Room l Bike Store
Large Open Plan Living & Dining Room & Kitchen I South-facing balcony with views over Loch Laggan I Direct access from Dining area onto landscaped hillside.
The plot extends to approximately 1.7 Acres.
We are informed that there is electricity connection available on site and a borehole has been installed to a depth of over 100m and test results show a sustainable yield from this borehole to be in excess of 3000 litres/hour which will amply provide a direct pressurised supply to the intended development. Sewerage would be to a private septic tank. Purchasers should satisfy themselves on service provision.
