> Overview

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 bedroom dwelling house offering a high standard of accommodation, a former cottage and a range of outbuildings.

The land, registered as Grade 1, 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.

The dwelling house 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.

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.

The island of Wyre is one of Orkney’s inner north isles and has a population of 8. Wyre is connected to the Orkney mainland by the roll-on roll-off ferry, which has 5 daily return trips 6 days a week with the islanders having the opportunity to purchase subsidised tickets.

Primary school pupils from the island attend the school on the neighbouring island of Rousay and secondary school pupils travel daily into Kirkwall. There are several places of archaeological interest on the island and opportunities to observe a rich variety of wildlife.

This property has private access with no passing traffic.
