Burwick Farmhouse is peacefully situated on the South Western tip of South Ronaldsay, which is one of Orkney's interlinked south isles. It is approximately 6.7 miles to St Margaret's Hope and 21 miles to Kirkwall. The Grade B listed farmstead is located just off the A961 and is just a stone's throw away from Burwick Ferry Terminal where in the summer season there are regular foot passenger ferries to and from John O'Groats.
The historical farmstead has been derelict since around the mid 1970s and is comprised of a two storey farmhouse with a single storey lean-to forming an L shaped plan, and large barn set across the road. Burwick Farm enjoys coastal views out across the Pentland Firth.
Since its purchase in 2015, the farmhouse and ancillary buildings have undergone some restoration including, new roof and windows. Electricity and water connections are in place, with drainage being through private septic tank. Permissions have been granted for full modernisation and development of the main farmhouse and conversion of the barn (now exempt). The approved architectural plans were drawn by Hayhurts & Co. with the aim of putting a modern twist on its distinctive Orkney vernacular architecture.
Burwick Farm is an exceptional opportunity ideal for those looking for a development project. Viewings are recommended to appreciate its full potential and the impressive rural landscape it is set in.
