> Overview

This 4 bedroom end-terraced bungalow is situated in the picturesque Balfour village, very close to the harbour and ferry terminal. 1 Balfour Village is a spacious dwellinghouse requiring partial modernisation and enjoys views across the harbour to the sea.

The dwellinghouse has UPVC framed double glazed windows and modern air source heating together with oil central heating.

There are two public rooms, living room and sitting room, and both have air source heaters with a third heater situated in the hall. The kitchen would benefit from modernisation as would the bathroom which has an electric shower over the bath.

Bedrooms 1 and 2 are doubles and both have a fitted wardrobe and cupboard. The two single bedrooms both have a built-in wardrobe and cupboard.

The garden ground, which is to the front of the house, is rough grass.

The island of Shapinsay is one of Orkney’s inner north isles and is connected to the Orkney mainland by a scheduled roll-on, roll-off ferry service. The amenities on the island include a primary school and general store with sub-post office.

Interested parties may wish to note that a garage/store, situated to the rear of the house, is being offered for sale separately.
