> Overview

Sutherlands garage comprises a licensed convenience store with sub-post office, petrol pumps, commercial garage which previously offered repairs and M.O.T.’s, a spacious 4-bedroom single storey house, large store/workshop, and stables with a paddock extending to the side of the Loch of Stenness.
The popular shop is well-stocked, and the petrol pumps enjoy an excellent location adjacent to the main Kirkwall-Stromness road.
Prospective purchasers should note that they will be required to be approved by Post Office Counters before they can operate the sub-post office and will need to apply to the Orkney Licencing Board for an off-sales licence.
Prior to the owner's ill health, the commercial garage offered M.O.T. testing, vehicle repairs and tyre fitting. The two electric hoists are included in the sale price.
The petrol pumps have card payment options for when the shop is closed.

The adjoining 4-bedroom dwellinghouse has oil-fired central heating and UPVC framed double glazed windows.
There is a spacious living room and the kitchen has fitted base and wall cupboards incorporating plumbing for a dishwasher, bottle fed gas cooker and an oil-fired Rayburn Royal. The rear vestibule has plumbing for a washing machine.
The shower room has a 3-piece suite with the shower cubicle featuring body jets. All the bedrooms have a radiator and a fitted wardrobe.
To the rear is a large store/workshop together with a stable and a paddock which extends to the shore of the Loch of Stenness.

Stenness is located approximately 11 miles from Kirkwall and approximately 4 miles from Stromness. The village includes a primary school, hotel and ice cream parlour.
