The Dreva Road site is located to the east of the small village of Broughton, a popular commuter location, which has a primary school, post office, village store, tea room / bistro / bar, petrol station and small brewery. The village is situated approximately 25 miles (40 km) south of Edinburgh, between Peebles (approx. 9 miles / 15 km) and Biggar (approx. 5 miles / 8 km), on the main A701 road. Both Biggar and Peebles offer a wide range of retail and community facilities with well regarded primary and secondary schools located in both towns.
The residential development site, comprising just under 6 acres, is situated on the quiet Dreva Road, close to the centre of the attractive commuter village of Broughton. The land currently forms part of a 12 acre field which is in agricultural use under a short-term lease.
The site is broadly rectangular and slopes relatively gently from north to south. To the north of the site is the remainder of the wider 12 acre field while to the south, past Dreva Road, is also open ground. To the east is a substantial detached house within ample garden grounds. To the west are established residential uses. At the south of the site are views of the village across Dreva Road while to the north are spectacular views of the local hills
