Full description

Green Farm extends to 150 acres or thereby and enjoys a beautiful secluded position on the south-east coastline of Eday. The extensive property includes a three bedroom farmhouse, a tastefully renovated self-catering holiday cottage, a 10kw wind turbine, outbuildings, six uninhabitable dwellings which offer the opportunity to be converted or replaced by new properties and approximately 1km of shoreline including a sandy beach.

The three bedroom farmhouse has double glazed windows and electric heating. The accommodation includes a living room, dining/utility room, kitchen, bathroom and shower room together with the three bedrooms. The garden includes a parking area, drying area and two vegetable plots.

The 10kw Bergey wind turbine was installed in 2012 and generates significant F.I.T. income. The turbine is still under warranty and there is a supply contract with SSE until 2032.

Most of the fields (43.83ha) are designated as Region 1 and are suitable for grazing and hay production.

The outbuildings include a large general purpose shed, maintenance and repair workshop and a productive poly-tunnel and large greenhouse which both benefit from irrigation provided by a bore hole.

The Ruah is the beautifully renovated self-catering cottage which is situated on the cliff top. The cottage has a lounge/kitchen, bedroom and shower room together with a paved and walled sitting area.

The six derelict buildings which offer potential for development or replacement with new dwelling, subject to planning permission, include Stackigeo which does have a roof and Manseboat, Cairnyquoy and Windywall which are all roofless.

Eday is one of Orkney’s north isles and is connected to the mainland by scheduled ferry and air services. The amenities on Eday include a primary school and general store.

All farm equipment, workshop contents and furniture are included in the sale.
