The farm and lands of Onziebust are situated on the picturesque island of Wyre and offer peace and tranquillity together with privacy. The property includes a recently built spacious 2-3 bedroomed dwelling house offering a high standard of accommodation, a former cottage and a range of outbuildings.
The land, which comes under the Common Agricultural policy has been assessed as Region 1 which attracts the highest payments and extends to approximately 100 acres with approximately 65 acres of grass and 35 acres of grazing. There is also approximately 3/4 mile of foreshore, a Bronze Age monument and the loch of Oorns which is gradually having trout introduced for the owners private use..
The dwellinghouse has oil fired under floor central heating and UPVC framed double glazed windows. The accommodation includes a spacious living room 31’ x 15’4” with 4 large windows offering outstanding views over the island to the sea and the neighbouring islands. There is a modern fitted kitchen with a dining area. The bathroom has both a shower and a bath and one of the two double bedrooms has an en-suite. Should interested parties require a 3rd bedroom, arrangements are in place at the sellers expense for builders to split the huge 9.3m livingroom indicated by the dashed line on the floor plan. This would make the lounge 5.8m x 4.8m and the 3rd bedroom 4.8m x 3.35m
The former cottage stands to the side of the house and may be suitable for modernisation or conversion into a home office or studio.
The range of outbuildings includes 2 byres, a barn, 2 Nissan huts and a range of traditional stores. The boundary fencing is in good order with the internal fencing being upgraded. There is a water supply to most fields.
A 5kw wind turbine has been erected on the farm and this feeds free electricity to the property. The ownership of the turbine is not included in the sale.
