Living room, kitchen / diner, double bedroom, shower room & hall.


Good-sized, one bedroom first floor flat, situated on the Esplanade right in the heart of Lerwick’s town centre and therefore handy for shopping on Commercial Street and other amenities.

Forming part of a prominent Grade ‘C’ listed, three storey stone building, this bright, double glazed property comprises a living room, bay windowed double bedroom with sideways view to the harbour, a modern fitted kitchen with space for a table & chairs, and a shower room.

The flat would make a good first-time buy or has letting potential, particularly for holidays, as amenities are close at hand.
