> Overview


Deasbreck offers a unique opportunity to erect a new dwellinghouse in a 2 acre area close to the RSPB Birsay Moor reserve.

This unique site require to be viewed to fully appreciate the outstanding beauty of the views through the valley to the south and across the Lochs of Birsay and to the North West.

The dramatic Birsay coastline including Marwick Head and the Brough of Birsay is only a short drive away, as is the heart of Neolithic Orkney including Skara Brae, Maeshowe, Ring of Brodgar and the Standing Stones of Stenness. There are also a number of well renowned trout fishing lochs very close to Deasbreck.

The beautiful, gently sloping, South facing area of ground includes approximately 1 acre of grass and 1 acre of rough ground which is a natural habitat for small animals and birds. Approximately 75% of the boundary has been planted in the last 10 years, with a wide belt of mixed trees and shrubs, approximately 3000 in all.

There is planning permission (O.I.C. Ref 16/102/PP) to erect a spacious 2 bedroom bungalow with integral garage. The plans show for there to be air source heating, UPVC framed double glazed windows and the exterior to feature Siberian larch.

The house site is set approximately 120m from the public road and mains water and electricity have been taken to the site. Included in the sale is a 35’ x 12’ Willerby Residential caravan which has heating and hot water by a combi oil boiler which is set in an external store. There is also an insulated porch which has plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble dryer. Telephone and satellite broadband are also installed to the caravan.

There are also 2 cabins, 20’ x 10’ linked with a 10’ x 10’ central section offering further storage.

The original ruin has been entirely demolished, with the stone to be used for construction of boundary walls and other features within the application site, as per the planning conditions.

Deasbreck is only a short car journey from Dounby village, which has a primary school, pharmacist, post office, hotel and supermarket. The towns of Stromness and Kirkwall are approximately a 30 minute drive away.
