About the property

For those seeking a self-build opportunity in a peaceful village setting, this building plot offers just that, with full planning permission in place for the erection of a detached three bedroom property. Extending to around 0.15 acre, for an individual builder this is an ideal plot to create a family home in a popular village community which is within easy reach of schools and amenities in Duns but also within commuting distance of Edinburgh


Preston is located a few miles north of Duns which has good educational and recreational facilities including primary and secondary schools, a swimming pool, tennis courts, 18 hole golf course, library, various speciality shops and walks and nature reserve within the grounds of Duns Castle and is home to the classical Edwardian Mansion at Manderston. Edinburgh is 45 miles away with the main East Coast rail line at Berwick upon Tweed some 15 miles distant.


Located in the centre of the village, just south of Preston Farm Cottages.

Building Plot & Permissions

The plot is nestled into a private and peaceful position within the village and neighbours onto farmland. The full planning permission allows for the erection of a one and a half storey detached property with private garden, driveway and parking. The external design and internal layout has been well planned and will cater perfectly for modern day family living. The open plan kitchen/dining/lounge will be an impressive sociable space with vaulted style ceiling with velux windows and an exterior clad in timber. There will also be sliding patio doors from this room allowing direct access to the gardens. There will be a utility room off as well as a double bedroom and shower room on the ground floor. The upper floor will provide a further two well-proportioned double bedrooms and family bathroom with a selection of dormer and velux windows throughout ensuring good natural light. The external space allows for a landscaped garden and decked patio to the east and south elevations with a driveway and parking to the north.
