This DEVELOPMENT PLOT has planning permission for a FIVE BEDROOM VILLA with a garage and is set in the idyllic small Hamlet of Montgarrie which is situated one mile north of the country town of Alford which is happily nestled in rural Aberdeenshire and has a peaceful and tranquil feel about it. It is skirted by the beautiful River Don and surrounded by the hills of Bennachie and Coreen. The area is a great place to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and just 25 miles west of Aberdeen.
The thriving village of Alford has an abundance of local amenities. It is recognised for its railway and transport museums, heritage centre and outdoor facilities at the Murray and Haughton Country Park which has a swimming pool, a dry ski slope, bowling green and an 18-hole golf course. A great location for those who love to walk and cycle. Primary schooling can be found at Alford Primary and Alford Academy.
The proposed houses are screened from existing houses and the Mill by a belt of mature trees.
The designs are based on best practice both in terms of design aspirations and sustainability. The designs and layouts will be sensitively considered to produce high quality aesthetics which will fit well in the surrounding context and the proposed development will be in keeping with the scale and character of its surroundings. Furthermore, sustainability and energy efficiency will be an integral design consideration maximising solar gain and incorporating natural shelter. The houses will sit within an extensive garden area in a beautiful rural location.
