About the property

A Prime South Facing Building Plot with Full Planning Permission For a Sustainable Detached Bungalow

Boasting an idyllic position on the edge of this established Berwickshire village, Plot 2 enjoys a southerly aspect with open views over the surrounding farmland towards The Cheviots in the distance. Benefitting from full planning permission for a detached bungalow with detached garage, ample parking and sizeable wrap around gardens, this is an ideal opportunity for those either looking to create a one off family home or perhaps those seeking to retire to this area in search of a new life in the country.


Whitsome is a small but thriving village community served by a post office, general store and busy village hall, and situated some two miles from the village of Swinton, where there is a primary school. Both Swinton and Allanton (two miles) have hotel/restaurants. Duns, the nearest town, has good educational and recreational facilities including primary and secondary schools, swimming pool, tennis courts, 18 hole golf course, library, medical/dental facilities and various speciality shops. Edinburgh is 45 miles away and the main east coast railway line is 10 miles distant at Berwick-upon-Tweed.

Plot & Planning

Extending to approximately 0.24 acre, this south facing building plot has full planning consent for a three bedroom detached bungalow with garage.

The design of the bungalow has been well considered with sustainable features including solar panels, triple glazing and under floor heating powered by an air source heat pump.

The layout offers a sociable open plan arrangement of the living areas and has been designed to make the most of the open views to the south with two sets of patio doors from the lounge & kitchen leading directly to the gardens. There is also a well-appointed utility room off the kitchen which further benefits from a walk in larder. The three bedrooms boast floor to ceiling windows to ensure maximum light whilst bedrooms one and two also benefit from well-appointed en-suite facilities.

The permissions also allow for a detached single garage to the east of the bungalow and the design has included an electric car charging point. The private drive has enough space to cater for several vehicles/motorhome or such like if desired whilst the gardens extend around the bungalow ensuring excellent privacy, a super open outlook and plenty of space for the gardening enthusiast.

Full planning documentation including site plans and floor plans can be downloaded from the Scottish Borders Council online planning portal using reference - 17/00177/PPP


The permissions allow for the build to be connected to mains drainage and electricity whilst the heating will be provided by an air source heat pump.
