    About this property

    • The site currently comprises a granite Victorian, five/six bedroom schoolhouse with large garden extending in total to 0.56 hectares (1.38 acres). The site is available with or without the schoolhouse. Planning consent has been granted for the erection of seven detached homes, retaining the existing schoolhouse for refurbishment. Initial ground works have commenced at plots 1, 6 and 7, including septic tank installation, and road-works to provide access to the schoolhouse have commenced. Mains water and gas are available and have been included in the plans. Discharge is to septic tanks with consent to discharge any overflow to a local burn. The site offers an excellent opportunity for a small scale developer and our clients would consider joint venture partnership.

    Local information

    • The site is in a semi-rural setting to the north of the village of Belhelvie, adjacent to a cluster of houses but otherwise surrounded by countryside and with views over the North Sea. The city of Aberdeen lies approximately 8 miles to the south and the seaside town of Balmedie lies approximately 1.2 miles to the east providing a range of amenities and facilities including a hotel, primary school, golf course and local shops. Trump International Golf Course lies approximately 4 miles to the north.
    • Hill of Keir is accessed off McKays Road, which connects the site to the B977 and onwards to the A90. The site is on the Tarves to Aberdeen bus route with a bus-stop on its corner. The surrounding area will benefit from the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route (AWPR) which is expected to open late 2018 and will improve access to the south of the city
    • and beyond. Access to the AWPR is approximately 2 miles away at the Balmedie Junction. The industrial estate and supermarkets of Bridge of Don are approximately 5 miles south and construction of a shopping complex, hotel and cinema has been approved at the Blackdog Junction, approximately 5 miles to the south-east.
