18, Main Street, Tomintoul, AB37 9EX

Offers Over £170,000


18 Main Street is situated on a generous plot extending from Main Street to Lecht Drive, encompassing approximately 1382 sqm or 0.34 acres. This substantial site currently features a four-bedroom home near the Main Street end. While the existing home requires complete refurbishment, it also presents an excellent opportunity for demolition and reconstruction, allowing for the creation of a delightful family home, subject to the necessary consents. The plot's size and location offer significant potential. In keeping with the trend seen in many other properties within the village, there is the possibility for subdivision, allowing for the development of two homes on the site, again contingent upon obtaining the necessary consents. This flexibility makes the property an attractive option for developers and those looking to create a customised living space with potential to add value. At present, the grounds of the property provide a natural habitat, creating a serene and private environment. The plot is further enhanced by a timber building located at the bottom of the garden, offering additional utility and storage space. This expansive and versatile plot at 18 Main Street is ripe with potential, whether for a single impressive family residence or a thoughtfully planned subdivision. EPC Rating F, Council Tax Band D
