Main Description
These prime building plots at Castle Hills Farm provide a rare opportunity for a purchaser to build a home in a fine location close to the vibrant town of Berwick upon Tweed. Castle Hills Farm is located at the top of one of the area’s most popular and prestigious residential streets, Castle Terrace. The eight plots have outline planning permission Reference 17 / 03673 / OUT for the construction of one and a half storey three or four bedroom homes which will have gardens front and rear and views over the surrounding countryside. Six of these prime plots are to be built along the drive on the site of former agricultural buildings; the other two in the remains of the old walled Cattle Court. The plots are in an appealing location with the railway station, town centre and shops being close at hand yet being in a semi-rural location. All the plots have a bright southerly aspect and gardens front and rear. They will also have off street parking for two cars.

Castle Hills Farm is located to the north of the town of Berwick upon Tweed and just off one of the town’s most sought after residential roads, Castle Terrace. Berwick upon Tweed has a range of shops and facilities with local and national retailers, and attractions including the award winning Maltings Theatre and the late medieval town walls. Transport links are excellent with a mainline station which has regular services to Edinburgh and Newcastle as well as London, and the A1 is close at hand providing easy access to the local, regional and national road networks. The area has a selection of educational options with primary, middle and special schools and The Berwick Academy in town, and Longridge Towers School some 10 minutes from the plots offering independent education from pre-school to A levels.
The Eastern Scottish Borders and North Northumberland have some wonderful countryside and coastline with miles of open sandy beaches and vertiginous cliff top walks within easy reach. There is plentiful open hill country with the Cheviot Hills to the south and Lammermuir Hills to the north offering great scope for walking and exploration. The border area is steeped in history and dotted with castles and battlefields with Berwick upon Tweed having a complete Elizabethan town wall. The area has world famous salmon fishing on the River Tweed, a range of golf courses and links, racecourses and opportunities for a variety of world class field sports.

Outline planning has been granted Reference 17 / 03673 / OUT for the construction of eight detached, one and a half storey houses with gardens front and back and off street parking. The houses are quietly located and will have views over the surrounding fields. Details of the Outline Planning Permission can be found on the Public Access Portal on the Northumberland County Council website using the planning reference.
The permission granted is Outline with no detail as to the final internal or external design. Purchasers will be responsible for making their own enquiries and satisfying themselves on planning issues. Unconditional offers are being invited based on the planning granted.
