> Overview

The farm of Hammerfield comprises a spacious 3 bedroom dwellinghouse, range of outbuildings and 61 acres or thereby, in one large block of land. The desirable property is set in an elevated position with stunning views across the parish of Wasbister in the north west area of the island of Rousay, which itself is one of Orkney’s inner north isles, and across the Westray Firth to the island of Westray.

Hammerfield benefits from hosting a wind turbine with the electricity generated partially off setting the usage of the house and providing an annual income for generation over 15,000kWh. The farm also enjoys income set through the Basic Payment Scheme, SRDP, LFASS and S.S.S.I schemes. 16.1 acres of pasture are classified as Region 1 and 37.7 acres of hill ground is classified as Region 3. Access to the property is via stone track and the boundary fencing and gates are new within the last 10 years. A concrete-based sheep corralling and working area allows for easy access to load/unload livestock with a tractor and trailer.

The dwellinghouse has oil fired central heating and UPVC framed double glazed windows. There is a spacious living room with space for a dining table. The large kitchen has modern base and wall cupboards, a dual fuel range cooker and plumbing for a dishwasher and washing machine.

Bedroom 1 has an en-suite bathroom, with a shower over the bath, and a walk in wardrobe. Bedroom 2 has an en-suite shower room and Bedroom 3 has an en-suite toilet, walk-in cupboard and patio doors and would also be suitable as a second living room or study.

The outbuildings include a large tandem garage with electric sectional door and access into the store. There is electricity and a derv/gasoil pipe and nozzle to an elevated tank located outside the tractor shed; and electricity and water to the farm shed, which also houses the electric fencing unit for the farm. Water from a well towards the top of the land can provide a gravity fed water supply to all fields.

The island of Rousay is connected to the Orkney mainland by the ferry services providing 6 scheduled ferries per day, suitable for commuting, and the amenities include a primary school, shops and two public houses.
