Bankfoot is a popular village, lying about eight miles north of Perth with a Post Office, Primary School, Public House and general stores for everyday shopping. The regional centre of Perth provides a comprehensive range of shops, schools and recreational facilities, including leisure centres, cinema, Perth Theatre and Concert Hall.
The nearby A9 links Perth and Inverness and leads to motorway connections serving Edinburgh and Glasgow. Their respective airports can be reached in just over an hour, while Perth railway station provides direct services to London.
For those interested in outdoor pursuits there are many golf courses in the area, including Dunkeld, Pitlochry and Blairgowrie. Shooting and fishing are also available in the area and the nearby mountains provide walking and skiing opportunities.
The land extends in all to about 18.43 hectares (45.54 acres) lying on the south edge of Bankfoot, comprising a single arable field and an amenity wood.
The property is offered for sale in two Lots as follows:
Lot 1 - Offers over £110,000
A field extending to about 9.28 hectares (22.93 acres), partially divided by the Garry Burn. The field has been let on a short term basis, is registered for IACS purposes but no subsidy has been claimed. The field is generally level, is classified Grade 2 by the Macaulay Institute for Soil Research, has been ploughed historically but has been in grass for many years.
Lot 2 - Offers over £45,000
Scot's Wood, extends to around 9.15 hectares (22.61 acres) and is designated as an Ancient Woodland by Scottish Natural Heritage. About 13 years ago, the Sellers created a community woodland from a former conifer plantation by planting amenity hardwoods and establishing a footpath network.
In conjunction with neighbouring land, the property has been the subject of a residential development proposal to Perth and Kinross Council for their Main Issues Report, under their current review of the Local Development Plan (LDP). The Council's response indicates that due to drainage/flooding issues around Bankfoot, it is unlikely that - along with other property - this land could be made effective for residential development within the life of the LDP. The Council report states "Bankfoot is a well-served settlement and there may be some scope for future expansion once the issues (drainage) have been resolved". A significant proportion of the subjects is not affected by the constraints and is likely therefore to have long term development potential.
Mains water is on site and a three phase mains electricity supply crosses the land.
There is a prescriptive right of vehicular access to Lot 2 over the road shown coloured brown A-B.
