3 double bedrooms, living / dining room, kitchen, 2 shower rooms.


Spacious, three double bedroom refurbished property in great, very central, Lerwick location just up Queen's Lane from the post office on Commercial Street. The property has an unusually private and secluded walled back garden, ideal for children or dogs.

The property which benefits from central heating provided by the Lerwick District Heating system, has been extensively refurbished in recent years including new windows and doors, a new kitchen, two new shower rooms, and complete re-decoration throughout.

Arranged over two floors the semi-detached accommodation comprises a generously proportioned living / dining room, a particularly bright space with windows at either end, a modern fitted kitchen, shower room & hallway on the ground floor with hardwearing 'Karndean' vinyl flooring throughout, and three carpeted double bedrooms and a second shower room upstairs.

The contents are available by separate negotiation.


On the Ground Floor:-


To the front of the house is a small front garden area laid with chips for low maintenance, a double glazed uPVC front door which opens to the hall, a bright space thanks a large window area to the side of the front door and further light coming from window to the landing upstairs. On the right is one of the two shower rooms, a fitted meter cupboard and a glazed door to the sittingroom, whilst at the end an archway leads to the large kitchen. On the left there is storage space below the carpeted stair to the first floor, and a radiator. Feature light fitting and hardwearing 'Karndean' wood effect vinyl flooring which extends throughout the hall and the whole of the ground floor accommodation enhancing the spacious feel of the property.


(Approx. 3.9m x 2.6m) (12'10" x 8'6") Also a bright space thanks to its dual aspect, the two windows and the uPVC double glazed back door looking out over the back garden area. The room is attractively fitted with units in a grey gloss finish set off by white worktops and black and grey tiled splashbacks plus a stainless steel splashback behind the freestanding cooker which is included in the sale along with the fridge / freezer. Inset 1½ bowl sink. A small built-in cupboard houses the district heating unit.

Sittingroom / Dining Room

(Approx. 5m x 3.9m + 2.2m x 2.15m) (16'4" x 12'9" + 7'3" x 7") This generously proportioned room also benefits from lots of light as it has windows to either side of the house, the back window to the living area facing south and looking out over the back garden, both the windows having vertical blinds. Again the flooring is 'Karndean' vinyl and there are two feature light fittings, TV point & two radiators.

Shower Room

(Approx. 1.95m x 1.55m) (6'4" x 5'2") Re-fitted, wet-wall lined shower room with corner shower with glazed screen / door, white WC and wash hand basin with mirror and light / shaver fitting over. Radiator.

On the First Floor:-


The carpeted stair leads up to the first floor landing, also carpeted, which is lit by a window to the side of the house with vertical blind and leads to three double bedrooms and the second shower room. A hatch provides access to the loft space. Radiator.

Shower Room 2

(Approx. 2.3m x 1.9m) (7'7" x 6'3") Good-sized attractively finished shower room with wet-wall lining around the large shower enclosure which again has a glazed screen / door, and the white WC & wash hand basin, the walls elsewhere being attractively tiled. Mirror / shelf & light / shaver fitting over the w.h.b., vinyl flooring & radiator.

The three double bedrooms all have a fitted carpet, vertical blind at the window, a feature light fitting, a 32 inch TV & radiator.

Bedroom 1

(Approx. 2.35m x 4.65m at longest point) (7'9" x 15'3") South-facing room.

Bedroom 2

(Approx. 4.55m x 2.75m) (15' x 9') Larger room facing north with view to the small harbour area.

Bedroom 3

(Approx. 3.45m x 2.8m) (11'4" x 9'2") Third double room also north-facing and again enjoying a view to the small boat harbour area. Wardrobe recess.


In addition to the small front garden area the property benefits from a good-sized garden to the side and rear, a particularly private and secluded space thanks to it being bordered by a high stone wall. It can be accessed either from the kitchen or a gate from the lane and is mainly grassed with a drying green. There is plenty of space to create an outside patio space and an external cold water tap.
