Yvonne Fitzgerald is delighted to bring to the market this excellent opportunity to purchase a desirable croft house which is structurally intact, in a rural setting, with sea views.

Occupying a site extending to approximately one third of an acre, this property is of stone and slate construction, and has been plaster boarded out internally to provide two rooms, both of which have power. The original croft house needs renovated throughout although the basics are there. Adjoining the cottage is a double block extension which is to shoulder height, which could either be knocked down, or finished off, to provide a large family home. Previously this property had planning consent granted, to extend the existing dwelling house into a three bedroomed family home, with a large kitchen/diner, a family lounge, a porch, a family bathroom and an En suite. Should one wish to continue with the build, a structural engineer would be required to check the founds etc are intact, as a number of years has lapsed since the foundations and block work were put in.

The site itself is priced to sell, and we believe that once the build is finished that the property would be worth around £160,000 making this an excellent opportunity for a developer.

From the site, which is accessed via a stainless steel gate, the views are exceptional of the sea and the surrounding countryside. Burnthill Cottage is fully enclosed and is fenced off. There is also a caravan on site, which is available by separate negotiation.

Situated in a beautiful, tranquil, rural setting, the property is just a short driving distance to Thrumster where schooling and a restaurant can be found. It is also an eight-mile drive to Wick, which is the second largest town in the county of Caithness. The property is accessible to all local amenities including primary schools, hotels, restaurants, the Caithness General Hospital, and rail links, as well as the John O Groats Airport.
