Description

AMAZING RESULTS!™ Commercial are delighted to offer to the market an exceptional and rare development opportunity. ‘The Golf Ball’, an iconic Perth and Kinross-shire landmark is situated on approx. 9 acres of prime development land in a beautiful rural setting with stunning panoramic views close to the villages of Kinross and junction 6 of the M90 Motorway. The ideal location for commuting thoughout east central Scotland this is the perfect location for residential, commercial or leisure development.

Built on what was RAF Balado Bridge, a World War Two airfield where Polish pilots trained on Hurricanes and Spitfires, the 'Golf Ball' dominates the landscape.

The now inactive NATO Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) early warning radar is situated in 9 acres of land surrounded, as you'd expect, by a burglar-proof double layer security fence.

Opened by Princess Anne in 1985 the white fibreglass radome houses a large dish antenna which could be rotated and elevated to point in any desired direction.

Linked to the main equipment building by a corridor and doors built to withstand a Nuclear, Biological or Chemical attack there's an additional emergency power generator room and an accommodation block which housed the station mess, recreation, and office facilities.

There's also garages, diesel tanks and a sizeable guardhouse with full facilities including a kitchen and toilet... what more could you want?

Well, it's close to local facilities and those all important schools, being just two minutes from the town of Kinross and a mile from Junction 6 of the M90 motorway - making Edinburgh just a half hour commute away.

Expect to be impressed! Not your average development opportunity.
