  • A great opportunity to build your own home.Cashley Farm is on the westerly side of Buchlyvie and is home to a small group of homes including some individually built houses. Plot 1 is one of five private building plots (three properties already built) at the northwest corner of Cashley. Our clients secured Full Planning Consent for a striking, highly insulated, and contemporary Detached House in December 2021. Working with Fleming Homes, of Duns in Berwickshire, our clients have designed a gorgeous property that acknowledges the agricultural origins of the site with its bold corrugated steel sheeting, in black, to both walls (with contrasting off-white rendered gables) and roof (with a small living [Sedum] flat roof section connecting the two main building structures) along with some wooden accenting. Black Alu-clad double-glazed windows continue the theme with two sliding ‘barn doors’ a further nod to its setting and origins. Our clients’ aim was to have an as energy efficient home as possible and whilst it would not be to Passivhaus standard, it was to be close to it and to meet with requirements for ‘eco’ mortgages. This was to be achieved through high specification windows, solar roof panels, air source heat pump and high levels of insulation. The goal was to have the house self-sufficient, power wise. There is mains water to the site. Drainage was to be to a sophisticated private drainage system (the same as the other new homes at Cashley) which purifies the water before it outflows into Cashley Burn.As one can see from the illustrative CGI, and illustrative floor plans, the house really is highly contemporary in design and includes some key spaces – perhaps most notably that all important open plan kitchen/dining/living area and, solely on the first floor, a fantastic main bedroom suite with generous bedroom area, dressing closet, ensuite and a bank of three roof terrace windows accessing a good sized balcony from which to take in a truly outstanding view. This panoramic vista takes one across the adjoining countryside towards the hilltops of Craig of Monievreckie and Beinn Dearg of The Queen Elizabeth Forest Park and beyond this to the summit of Ben Ledi.For many, building one’s dream home is an aspiration. Here is an almost readymade proposition to make that a reality, our clients having already paid for design and engineering fees. Fleming Homes ( who worked on the technical side of the property design and would be the manufacturer of the kit, would build the structure off site and deliver to site. It would then be a matter of commissioning a contractor to undertake the build. They have the site investigation report, the topographical survey, and the drainage design. The new purchaser would simply need to engage Fleming Homes again. A building warrant has not been applied for, which the purchaser would need to do before building works could commence. Of course, one could pursue alternative arrangements and plans, subject to any subsequent planning approval and building warrant.The planning approval, and associated drawings, can be found on the Stirling Council Planning Portal website, using the planning reference: 21/00838/FUL, and interested parties should visit this for further information.In terms of landscaping no formal design has been undertaken in this respect, but as one can see from the planning submissions, there are three garden areas intended along with a hardstanding for parking cars and a courtyard. The purchaser can style to their own choosing. Similarly, subject to a new planning application and building warrant, clients could pursue their own design of home and/or lay-out. It is the plot that is for sale, with its Planning Permission, as our clients are now undertaking another project. One can refer to the floor plan, but in summary the current plans comprise:

GROUND FLOOR (Approx 161.3 sq m)
• Entrance Hall and Corridor – With both front (double) and rear (single) doors, including the ‘link’ between the two wings.
• Formal Lounge.
• Kitchen – Plan for design to have an island.
• Dining Area and Living Room, open-plan to the kitchen – Lots of glass, patio, doors, and the design includes a wood burning stove and the bold feature of a clear-storey void above the living room.
• Utility Room

• Bedrooms 2 and 3 – Both double rooms, both with wardrobe provision.
• Wet Room (shower room)
• Bathroom – With ‘wet zone’ shower.
