K Allan Properties are delighted to present this beautifully positioned homestead in Evie to the market.

The homestead consists of two properties:

Upper Midhouse is a spacious 3-bedroom detached house, which was built by an Orkney Trading Merchant (John Spence) in the mid-1800s. The house also had a life as a shop and a School through its history.

Upper Midhouse Cottage started life as the stables and was converted in the 1980s into a 2-bedroom cottage.

The two properties are positioned together on the same 2/3rds of an acre plot and both feature spectacular panoramic countryside & sea views.
Both properties have been extensively renovated by the current owners over the last 15 years.

Upper Midhouse (the larger of the two properties), comprises of a spacious living / dining area, kitchen, conservatory, utility, sunroom, shower room, 3 bedrooms, a bathroom and spacious garage.

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.
