Aberdeen, UK – A unique opportunity for a property developer to build a range of exclusive, executive-style homes in a serene Highland setting, is now being jointly marketed by international property consultancy, Knight Frank LLP and Aberdeen & Northern (Estates) Ltd.

Set within 126 hectares of Scottish countryside, close to the village of Urquhart and just five miles from Elgin, the first phase of the residential development is now available for purchase.

Planning permission has been granted to build 40 luxury homes and the first phase comprising 12 generous plots, have already been fully serviced with electric and telephone cabling, water supply and sewerage. Each plot has the benefit of full planning consent ranging from 0.187 hectares (0.46 acres) up to 0.585 hectares (1.45 acres), offering a liberal parcel of land for each home.

Prospective home owners have the opportunity to build their dream home (subject to planning permission). Plans are also available for a range of 16 different house styles by the renowned architect, Ian Duncan, all with an emphasis on light, space and luxury.

Katherine Monro, partner at Knight Frank said:

“This is a fantastic opportunity for a developer to get their hands on some prime land, complete with planning permission for executive-style homes which will undoubtedly attract the discerning buyer. Although within a countryside setting, the development has easy access to the main road network connecting Aberdeen, Inverness and other major Scottish cities. Already complete with servicing, the generous plots will allow a developer to fulfil a luxury, high-end development that will truly make its mark on the Scottish landscape.”

Maverston Highland Estate occupies a tranquil countryside setting, close to the village of Urquhart, a short distance from the main A96 which connects Inverness with Aberdeen. Elgin lies approximately 4.9 miles west, Aberdeen and its airport at Dyce are less than an hour and a half drive, whilst Inverness Airport is under an hour’s drive away. Elgin Railway Station is also in close proximity with regular services from Aberdeen to Inverness, with associated connections to Glasgow, Edinburgh, London and many other destinations.
