4.17 Hectares (10.31 Acres) of potential development land. With frontage on to both Hermitage Drive and Midmar Drive, the site is bordered to the south by mature woodland, to the north by allotment gardens and to the east by Blackford Hill. The site is predominantly flat and level at the southern end falling away from Midmar Drive towards Blackford Hill at the northern end. There is a Council maintained parking area, which is owned by the vendor, at the junction of Hermitage Drive and Midmar Drive providing pedestrian access to Blackford Hill to the east.
We believe that there is an opportunity, through consultation with the Community and the Council to secure development incorporating enhanced public access to the countryside, recreation opportunities, and enhanced allotment provision within established boundaries in a sustainable location. We believe this site could provide an element of diversity to the land supply, and an opportunity for higher value, bespoke properties with potential self-build opportunities to be delivered within a highly prestigious area of the City.
The site is located to the south of Morningside, which is one of Edinburgh's most sought after areas and is considered one of the city's premier residential addresses. A wide range of local amenities are available on Morningside Road, including shops such as Waitrose and Marks and Spencer food halls as well as a variety of cafes, restaurants and bars. Primary and secondary schooling is available nearby, including the highly rated South Morningside Primary School and a number of private schools also in the locality. There is a wide range of indoor and outdoor recreation available in the immediate locality, and the wider area. The city centre, city bypass and motorway network, and international airport are all readily accessible.
