Doocot, Pitairlie, Newbigging, Broughty Ferry, Dundee


Angus Council and Historic Environment Scotland have approved plans for an unique architect designed house which sensitively incorporates and makes a feature of a Category B listed 17th century Doocot. The generous plot has full planning permission and listed building consent which offers a rare opportunity to create a fantastic country home with all the creature comforts of contemporary living and the combined charm of a special historical setting.  

The Doocot has a very private setting within a highly sought after location which affords wonderful views of the surrounding Angus countryside and over to Fife. It is within easy reach of many towns and villages across the county of Angus and its close proximity to Broughty Ferry and Dundee ensures a wide range of shopping, business, social and leisure amenities including supermarkets and schooling at secondary and primary school level can easily be found.  Monikie and Crombie Country Parks, the golf courses and beaches at Carnoustie and Monifieth are a short driving distance away.

The approved planning design maximises views and light from sunrise to sunset. The accommodation includes a master suite with en-suite and dressing rooms, one en-suite double bedroom and two further double bedrooms (one shows as mezzanine' on the plans as use of this space is currently flexible), family bathroom, spacious open plan kitchen-dining-living room, utility room with cloakroom, separate large lounge with wood burner and terrace, snug/study within the Doocot, a garage, plant room and generous secluded outdoor entertainment space.

The site is easily accessible therefore anyone visiting the site unaccompanied is requested to be mindful of the privacy of the people living in the immediate area close to the site and drive at a slow speed along the private access road to the location. The site boundary is marked out with colour tipped posts.

Topographical, environmental and site investigation surveys have been completed including a current bat survey. A structural survey of the Doocot has been undertaken and an archaeological survey of the plot has already been completed which confirmed no further actions are required.

The 1220 square meters plot is fully serviced (mains electricity connection, mains water connection, telecommunications connection to upgraded fibre cabinet) and would require the purchaser to install a septic tank during building works due to the rural location.

Information regarding the planning application and listed building consent can be found on the Angus Council Planning Applications website using references 20/00321/FULL and 20/00320/LBC
