Full description

The Holms of Stromness offer a unique opportunity to purchase 2 private islands in Orkney.  The Inner and Outer Holms of Stromness are tidal islands that form part of the harbour of Stromness.  The total acreage for the Inner and Outer Holms is approximately 12.5 acres, under Udal Law 23 acres, when land extends to the lowest tide.
 
Situated on the Inner Holm is a large single storey dwellinghouse, comprising 4 double bedrooms main house, with a further 2 bedrooms in the adjoining annexe.  The property offers majestic views across Stromness, the island of Hoy and towards Scapa Flow.
 
The main house has a spacious livingroom/dining area with four windows, french doors that open out onto the garden, polished wooden floors and an impressive Claygate brick fire place and surround.  The kitchen has fitted base units, space for a cooker, washing machine and dishwasher together with 3 sky lights and a double glazed door leading to the garden.  The oil fired Rayburn range cooker is unused at present but can be easily reinstalled by uncapping the chimney.  The shower room has a free standing shower cubicle, w.c., and wash hand basin in a fitted unit and the bathroom has a three piece suite with shower over the bath.
 
The annexe is joined to the main house by a large conservatory, with patio door, and utility room. The large living room/dining area/kitchenette has polished wooden floors and 4 windows.  There is a bedroom with fitted wardrobes and cupboards above and a study/bedroom 2 which has a multi-fuel stove.  The bathroom has a shower over the bath.  The domestic hot water is heated by an electric emersion heater.
 
All windows and doors for both the main house and the annexe are double glazed with UPVC frames. 

The property is served by a 6kw wind turbine and the associated Feed-in-Tariff will be transferred to the purchasers on completion. 
 
There is a large lawn area surrounding the house together with a walled garden and large stone outhouse, on the north-east side of the island. There is also a flag pole located on the Inner Holm.
 
Both Holms are presently let out to summer grazing.  The Holms are reached by boat, both having stone jetties, though it is also possible to reach the Holms by a causeway at low tide.

This unique property provides a wonderful opportunity to purchase an idyllic retreat close to the Orkney Mainland.
