> Overview

Shapinsay Manse is a substantial 4 – 5 bedroom two storey dwellinghouse which commands a beautiful view over farmland to the sea with the Orkney mainland in the distance.

The property has been tastefully modernised but retains much of its character with decorative cornicing, picture rails, fire places and exposed wooden floors. There is oil central heating with the new system installed in 2012.

Double Glazing was fitted throughout in 2015.

To the front of the house, on the ground floor, are the spacious living room and drawing room which both enjoy views over the garden and beyond, fire places appear in both these rooms. There is also a dining room, study/office/bedroom 5, shower room and modern kitchen on the ground floor.

There are 4 double bedrooms on the first floor together with a modern bathroom which has shower over the ‘P’ shaped bath.

The large garden is divided up into 3 sections with a walled lawn to the front of the house, mature bushes in the border and a lean-to garden store. To the side is a second walled garden which is very sheltered, with mature trees and bushes, flowers beds and patio. To the rear of the house is a further area of lawn with a large stone building divided into 3 stores.

Shapinsay is one of Orkney’s inner north isles and its amenities include a primary school and general store. A roll-on roll-off ferry travels back and forth to Kirkwall enabling islanders to commute daily. Shapinsay also has a out of hours boat service and a free island taxi run by the Development Trust.

The owners of Shapinsay Manse have a super fast broadband connection and this may be passed onto the new owners by separate arrangement.
