Unique Island Property with a Diverse Range of Income and Development Opportunities
Green Farm is a diverse holding which, in addition to a well-maintained principal dwelling, presents exciting opportunities for a purchaser to develop existing assets for their personal use or to create additional income streams.
The main dwelling, Green Farmhouse, is located centrally within the farm which consists of predominately grassland and enjoys extensive south facing views across the Stronsay Firth.
To the south of the farmhouse is a range of agricultural buildings, including both a traditional range of stone stores and workshops and more modern buildings suited to housing livestock and thus allowing the property to be operated for small-scale agriculture. In addition, a productive polytunnel and substantial greenhouse, both with borehole-fed irrigation and an electricity supply to the greenhouse, offer additional amenity and lifestyle options at the property.
To the east of the farmyard, and benefitting from a separate access and open sea views, is a one bedroom stone cottage, The Ruah, currently furnished and operated as self-catering holiday accommodation.
A selection of redundant and derelict former dwellings and buildings lie away from the farmhouse to the eastern and western boundaries of the property, and, in accordance with local planning policy, present the opportunity to develop six residential dwellings (subject to planning consent).
The land is predominately grassland, with areas of heath and two peaty ponds. The southern property boundary is the shoreline which includes the sandy cove known as Sands of Green and further accessible areas of rocky coastline.
The landscape provides a habitat for a diverse range of bird and animal life, including sea otters, seals, migratory seabirds and owls.
The property presents ample opportunity to generate income, with the current owners having overtime let land for grazing and produced hay, vegetables and eggs for supply and sale across Orkney. In addition to this and the holiday accommodation at The Ruah, a 10kW wind turbine provides electricity for use at the property and benefits from an index linked Feed in Tariff and electricity sales to the grid.
