West Avenue is a very desirable Rural Residential Site on the fringe of Breda House Policies. This is a level, recently cleared site previously occupied by modern farm buildings. The site is accessed via a tarmacadam road and mains water and electricity services are on site.
The planning consent details 3 detached one and a half storey dwellings arranged in a courtyard type layout. The proposed houses each have a gross internal floor area of 216 sq. metres to incorporate a sitting room, breakfasting kitchen, master bedroom with en suite, double bedrooms 2 and 3, utility room, shower room and bathroom along with an integral garage. Private gardens would be situated to the rear of each of the three properties with a courtyard area to the front. There is the opportunity to re-apply for a lesser number of dwellings if desired.
West Avenue offers the opportunity to enable those who wish to build their own home in the countryside a change of lifestyle, to work from home. Broadband connectivity is good. The site is 3 miles from the thriving country town of Alford where there is a new School Campus and Community Hub. School transport comes onto the Estate so there is "no school run" twice a day! There are local shops and a supermarket in Alford, Heritage & Transport museums, golf course, dry ski slope and a country park. The Estate has its own 2 ½ mile beat, with 20 named pools on the River Don and can offer fishing on a day or seasonal ticket basis.
West Avenue's quiet location belies its accessibility for Breda Estate is just 3 hours drive from Edinburgh/Glasgow, 40 minutes from Aberdeen City & railway station, some 25 minutes from both the Westhill (Oil & Gas Industry hub) and Aberdeen (Dyce) Airport. Royal Deeside and the Cairngorm National Park are nearby with skiing at The Lecht Ski Centre and the beaches & sailing on the North Coast within easy reach. There are numerous golf courses in North East Scotland.
From West Avenue there is easy access to a maintained walk along the banks of the River Don. The 'Right to Roam' facilitates entry into the Estate's pathways and tracts, the naturally regenerating birch woodlands on Breda Hill and the Caledonian Pine forest with its ancient trees and 10'6" London lamp post, said by some to have been there since the beginning of this world! The magic of Breda is in its quiet for the opportunities to observe, be inspired or just be at one with the environment of the estate are as myriad as those provided by it and support a different way of being for those who wish to create their own healthier way of living, their own 'new normal'.
