A SIZEABLE plot of land within the grounds of Whittingehame House – with planning permission to build a large home – has been put up for sale for offers over £850,000.

The plot at Willow Rise was granted consent for a substantial 3,200-square-foot detached family home with garaging within the grounds of Whittingehame House.

The plot, which is approximately five acres, sits within a fully matured tree-lined setting.

The consent is for accommodation to be over two levels, with living areas on the ground floor and multiple accesses out to the terrace and gardens.

As well as a ground-floor study, there is also provision for a large hallway, vestibule with guest cloakroom and utility room.

On the first floor, the principal bedroom will feature a dressing room and en-suite bathroom and there will be three further bedrooms, all of which will have an en-suite.

The plans allow for parking and there is consent for a three-car garage. The plot can also be landscaped as required, with space for paddocks available.

As well as planning permission being granted, a stage one building warrant has also been obtained from East Lothian Council.
