About this property

  • Braidwood comprises a small, peaceful community of seven dwellings mostly within the former steading to Braidwood Farm. Although no longer a working farm, the properties are surrounded by woodland, grazing land and rolling countryside.

    The Braidwood plot lies to the north and east of the steading and Braidwood House. It is located in a green field site of grazing pasture. It is of a size that a detached house can be built with a substantial garden surrounding it. The plot is positioned to offer the optimal level of privacy for the proposed dwelling and the neighbouring properties. There will be a driveway with direct access onto the A702.

    Full planning details are available on Midlothian Council Planning Portal - Planning reference 17/00872/PPP.
