> Overview

Wateringhouse is a well-presented two bedroom detached bungalow set in a large garden which extends to the foreshore. The original cottage has been extensively renovated and extended to a very high standard and enjoys a beautiful view over the bay with Scapa Flow in the distance.

Wateringhouse is situated in the village of Longhope on the island of Hoy and was originally the site where ships took on board supplies of drinking water. The island is connected to the Orkney mainland by scheduled ferry services and its amenities include primary and junior secondary schools, swimming pool, general store, post office and hotels.

The dwellinghouse stands in excellent decorative order and has velux and uPVC framed double glazed windows together with electric to water under floor central heating.

The living room has 2 velux windows and a floor to ceiling window to fully enjoy the view over the garden and bay towards Scapa Flow. There are 4 windows in the kitchen, including 2 velux windows, together with a dining area and quality fitted base and wall cupboards incorporating a fridge, freezer, washing machine and electric range cooker.

The bathroom has a 4 piece suite including a bath and shower, and the two bedrooms both have wood lined walls and laminate flooring.

The extensive garden includes the area of lawn between the public road and foreshore which includes 2 boat nousts. The walled garden around the house includes lawn, raised beds with shrubs and bushes, a tree and stone chip paths. There is a large garden shed to the side of the house.

The wide driveway to the side of the walled garden leads up to the fenced and walled paddock to the rear.
