Stone built one and a half storey cottage with direct open views over the sound to the Island of Orsay and its lighthouse.

Full Description


A traditional, mid-terraced house, with lots of character and charm.  This stone built one and a half storey COTTAGE sits peacefully within the conservation village of Port Wemyss on the landward side of Shore Street.  21 Shore Street is ideally placed to enjoy direct open views over the sound to the Island of Orsay and its lighthouse.

The property is thought to date back to the mid nineteenth century.  A ground floor extension, accommodating the present bathroom and utility room, was added at the rear in the 1960s.  Windows to the front of the house are double glazed.  Heating is provided by a mix of electric storage heaters, on white meter and panel heaters.  The cottage, generally, is now in need of some refurbishment.  Issues relating to general condition and dampness are highlighted in the Home Report and are reflected in the price now sought.
