Derelict cottage and half acre set in a very secluded setting, but just 2.5 miles north of Dunfermline. The plots situation provides easy commuting to Dunfermline or Edinburgh via the M90.
From an amenity point of view the plot is very well situated. Local services and Primary Schooling are nearby in Saline (2m) whilst Dunfermline (2m) offers a wide range of shops, leisure and sporting facilities and secondary schooling. The M90 motorway is 2.5 miles away affording easy access to the city of Edinburgh (18m) via the Forth Bridge
Mains water and electricity are located near the lodge house which sits at the entrance to the Lathalmond Farm driveway. The selling agents has applied for estimates for connections. Alternatively there is a private water supply and tank. Drainage would be to a private septic tank.
The cottage extends about 25 yards x 6 yards it is reasonably complete to wall head height. The ruin used to be three cottages measuring 40 yards x 6 yards.
The road access is shared with Lathalmond Farm for the first 500 yards, then turn left and proceed uphill for another 500 yards and the cottage sits at the end of the track.
The sale subject to planning
It is anticipated that the purchasers will purchase the house plot subject to them securing planning consent through McCrae and McCrae Ltd who will liaise with the fife council planners. The purchasers can appoint an architect but it is recommended that they use Ed Balton 01383 882382 who secured planning consent for a house on a similar ruin located about half a mile to the south west of Old Lathalmond called Hillhead. Fife council will likely refuse the ruined cottage to be renovated on one floor with one or two modest extensions to the rear eg 50% increase in footprint. Plans would have to be agreed before being submitted.
A £4000 deposit is sought. It would be refundable if planning permission was not secured.
