For a REALLY remote choice – take a look at this 2-bedroom engine house smallholding for sale in Noss Head, Wick, KW1 4QT.
“But what’s an engine house?”, you might be asking…
Well, this unique property investment opportunity is effectively an annexe to a 19th century active lighthouse in the Scottish Highlands.
As customary with lighthouse locations, the engine house is complemented by some stunning views overlooking the cliffs with distance views of Sinclair Girnigoe Castle and Sinclair’s Bay.
The aerial views of this place are stunning. (They show this property right on the verge of the cliff at Noss Head.)
The engine room sits within a bordered compound sharing land with the lighthouse and some renovated owner’s cottages.
As the name would suggest, the engine room is where the old lighthouse mechanics historically used to be housed.
Since those days, all the machinery has been removed making the property a very hospitable 2-bed accommodation. Newly renovated, the engine house has been fitted with high standard insulation for heat economy.
Connected by the A9 arterial road, you can easily access the local amenities like shops etc, which are only 10 mins away.
It’s a REALLY remote smallholding opportunity – out on a limb, quite literally.
It needs a lot of renovation in the main living quarter’s, but the canteen/office room was recently done.
It has the potential for either being a holiday let or a remote residential home.
£100,000 and currently (December 2020) on the market.
Take a look, to see if this hits the mark for your plans.
