St Madoes is an attractive village in the Carse of Gowrie located in the heart of rural Perthshire approximately six miles south east of Perth and 16 miles south west of Dundee. The village has a range of local amenities including primary schooling and a community centre. Although set in a rural location, there is easy access to the A90 and the wider motorway network. Both Perth and Dundee provide more extensive facilities, services and attractions. The area for sale is located to the east of St Madoes Church on the north east side of the village. Grid Ref: NO1970721221.
This is a good sized gap site extending to approximately 2,400 sq.m. situated adjacent to and east of St Madoes Parish Church and grounds. The site sits within a residential area and is bounded to the north east and east by housing on Braes Way and Gowrie Way and open land to the north west. The site is mainly down to scrub/shrubs and there are some trees and hedging along the boundaries. The adjacent church building, which dates from 1799, is now within private ownership having been sold by the Church of Scotland following the construction of the nearby St Madoch Centre which is where the congregation is now based. The graveyard is maintained by Perth and Kinross Council and features several significant stones dating back to the 18th century. Access to the site is taken from the main road running through the village and a non-exclusive right of access will be granted from this road along the driveway leading to the plot. This is a well situated site, with easy access to village amenities and provides for convenient commuting via the surrounding road network. It provides for an excellent development opportunity with the principle of residential development already being established over most of the plot.
