Full description

Craigiefield House is a superb property incorporating an impressive 6 bedroomed family home with a charming guest wing and a beautiful 3 bedroomed lodge all of stone construction within a well maintained garden.

The commanding dwellinghouse was built in 1882 and lies approximately 2 miles from St. Magnus Cathedral with views over Kirkwall bay towards Kirkwall. Sympathetically modernised to a high standard, Craigiefield House retains much of its character with original fireplaces, cornices and wood panelling.

The vestibule has both north and south facing exterior doors and it leads into the wide main hallway which has a feature fireplace and picture rail. The well-proportioned reception rooms include the dining room, which has a double aspect, and the living room together with a large modern garden room. There are 6 spacious double bedrooms, 3 each on both the first and second floors with 2 of them on the first floor having en-suites. The charming guest wing has 2 bedrooms and a shower room with sauna on the ground floor with an original 1880’s spiral staircase leading up to the spacious modern kitchen with dining area and the large living room with sea views to the north.

The guest wing has its own exterior door at the rear of Craigiefield House together with a lockable door off the kitchen which leads along a short hallway to the main house’s first floor landing. Craigiefield Lodge lies within the grounds to the rear of the green house and garages and offers a very high standard of accommodation with oak finishing’s throughout. The flexible design of the 3 bedroomed lodge allows for it to be divided into two spacious 1 bedroomed dwellings. It has most recently been let out as holiday accommodation and has proved most popular and was awarded 4 stars by VisitScotland.

The long driveway that leads up to Craigiefield House dissects the front garden and opens into a large parking area before continuing along one side of the house to the garages and stores. The walled garden includes a large area of lawn together with trees, bushes, shrubs and flower beds. There is a large green house offering opportunities to cultivate more precious plants together with a vegetable plot.

With a spacious family home, guest wing and lodge, Craigiefield House offers an exceptional lifestyle changing opportunity and viewing is essential to fully appreciate its qualities.
