SHEPHERD Chartered Surveyors is offering a residential development opportunity in Elrickle, Biggar for sale.

The 3.5 acre site has planning consent for the erection of 21 houses with associated ground works, landscaping, play area, access road, retention basin and private sewerage treatment plant.

The planning allows for four different house types, being a mix of four and five-bedroom detached and semi-detached villas.

Elsrickle is a small rural village within South Lanarkshire lying four miles north of Biggar and 26 miles from Edinburgh.

Situated on the A721, a main road leading to Carnwath to the north west, with links to the A702 Biggar Road to the south, the village is surrounded by agricultural land and the site enjoys open views over the countryside.

The previous use of the site was in part as a petrol filling station together with commercial garage/workshop buildings and ancillary offices.

The remainder of the site comprises undeveloped land.

Alastair Buchanan, associate at Shepherd, said: “The filling station and commercial buildings were positioned towards the southern part of the site fronting onto the A721. These buildings have now been removed.

“With the planning consent in place, the subjects present a residential development opportunity within a rural setting in the South Lanarkshire area, albeit within commuting distance of Edinburgh.”

Interested parties should contact the selling agent on tel 0141 331 2807.
