Sellers Information

Both properties are 100% electrically powered. This means that the carbon footprint is close to zero as Orkney is thought to generate 128% of its electricity needs from Wind, Solar, Tidal and Wave generators. The larger property has a 3.5kw solar array that provides a approx. 2800 kwh of electricity each year which reduces the draw from the grid. The current owners have 2 electric vehicles (EVs) which are powered from this solar output for much of the year (This reduces running costs to approx. 3p/mile). Using EVs means that the total day to day carbon footprint of the homestead is very low.

Orkney is well known as an enterprising place to live and this spirit flourishes at Upper Midhouse:

The solar array generates an annual income of £1820 – this is indexed up annually. The fit contract is transferable and has 15 years to run.

The cottage currently qualifies for 100% business rates relief and is registered for use as a holiday let with a potential income of around £4000pa

The current owners of Upper Midhouse manage (on behalf of the owner) a nearby holiday let cottage. This generates an income of around £3000pa. Any prospective owner may be able to take up this role if desired.

The giant sized greenhouse located at the lower end of the garden allows you to grow flowers and vegetables all year round.

The current owners are downsizing and would welcome the inclusion of furniture /sewing and quilting equipment / ride on mower / one ev in the sale if desired.

For anyone travelling to Orkney to view the properties you will be welcome to stay in the cottage for up to 3 nights, if it is available.
