Property Summary


Tirlot (pronounced Tirloe) is an attractive, architecturally designed eco house which is situated on the picturesque island of Rousay. With an attractive glass front and a high standard of energy performance with PV and solar panels and a wind turbine this property was designed to be efficient and economical.  The property has been connected to the electric grid as until recently it was self sufficient.  I am led to believe the property could be self sufficient rather simply if the new owner preferred this style of living.  With an architectural, bespoke design, Tirlot may appeal to those who wish to live in a property with a modern lifestyle that benefits from sea views. Tirlot sits on a plot which is approx. 1.5 acres and has a workshop, large garage along with an adjoining greenhouse. The property offers spectacular panoramic sea views in a peaceful and tranquil rural location.  A borehole water system is in place and having been recently connected to the electrical grid this property can offer a comfortable lifestyle with sea views.

Available with separate negotiations is a mooring and boat house on the neighbouring island Wyre.  Offers are being considered over £15000.
