Stirlingshire plot of land sought for transportable ‘eco home’

A transportable ‘eco house’ and its owner are looking for a new plot of land in Stirlingshire to call home.

The unusual instruction has been received by rural property specialist Baird Lumsden, a sister business to chartered surveyors, DM Hall.

“Usually we help clients find the plot of land first, and then they build the house – not the other way around!” said Jennifer Campbell, head of rural agency at Baird Lumsden.

The eco house is described as being built to bespoke specifications and clad in timber, specifically designed to have a low carbon footprint.

“Our client recognises her environmental responsibilities and has fulfilled a lifetimes ambition to live in an eco-house,” Ms Campbell added. “She loves her home and now we need to source a permanent home for it.”

The house was built by Tiny ECO Homes UK, a Northumberland-based company that builds small environmentally-friendly mobile homes on wheels. These can be legally towed by drivers on UK roads. Features include mezzanine bedrooms, breakfast bars and underfloor heating.

The eco home’s owner has a budget of up to £150,000 for the right plot of land, with ‘privacy and peaceful surroundings’ preferred.
