Property SummaryTime to get away from it all and rediscover a different type of life?
Here you have the opportunity to design and build your own dream eco-house. Situated between two established homes and overlooking an expansive community garden, this fully serviced plot, with a lovely Scots Pine behind, is offered for sale with Park planning in place.
Although the designs that were created for the existing owner are attached to this listing, these are merely to provide an indication of the potential. The plot is near the edge of the dunes and affords access to wonderful walking tracks and beautiful wild habitats, all within a short walk of the many activities and amenities that the Park has to offer. The delightful traditional coastal village of Findhorn is within a few minutes’ walk as are the miles of white sand beach that run from Findhorn to Burghead. A home here offers the opportunity of a lifestyle quite unlike any that you may have thought possible in the UK; to live within a community of people living with shared values.
