 Secluded walled garden just a short walk from the property, laid to lawn with mature shrubs.  The decking area provides fantastic, unrestricted views over Stromness harbour, the Holms and towards Scapa Flow and Orphir hills. The wooden shed provides ample storage space



The property is listed “C” by Historic Environment Scotland, who have commented that the relatively large gap between the first floor windows and eaves, providing space for smaller attic accommodation without the use of dormers, indicates the possibility of servant’s accommodation. 

The presence of this indicates that the building was probably intended to house a merchant family of some note. 

The property also lies within the Stromness Conservation Area. 

The house and garden are shown outlined in red on the plan annexed for indicative purposes only.
