Benefiting from central heating provided by the Lerwick District Heating System, and two large sheds in the garden, 13 Tarland is a three bedroom semi-detached property situated in an established residential area on the south side of Lerwick about a mile from the town centre.

Sound Primary School, Sands of Sound beach and Tesco's Supermarket are all within walking distance, a footpath running past the house providing pedestrian access all the way to the school.

In addition to two good-sized double bedrooms plus a third ground floor single bedroom or study, the double glazed accommodation also includes a bright living room, attractively fitted 22' kitchen / dining room with integral appliances, a modern shower room with fitted storage space, handy separate toilet, and utility room.

Externally the low maintenance garden area provides ample off-street parking.


Entry to the property is via a vestibule finished with pine 'v'-lining to a dado rail and a handy walk-in shelved cupboard providing useful storage space. A glazed inner door opens to the hall with doors to all downstairs rooms and a built-in under-stairs cloak cupboard which also houses the district heating unit, additional storage being provided by a second cupboard under the stairs, light filtering into the hall from the Velux window over the stairs to the first floor.

On the left is a good-sized carpeted living room with a wide triple window to the front of the house allowing in plenty of light. A recess housing an electric flame effect cast-iron style stove with alcove above for a TV provides an attractive focal point although there is also a central heating radiator. Further recessed book shelf. Behind the living room is the spacious kitchen / dining room to the rear of the house. Attractively fitted units in an 'oak' finish provide ample cupboard & worktop space and include a corner integral electric hob with cooker hood & display shelf behind and two deep pan drawers below. There is also an integrated oven & microwave plus a concealed fridge / freezer & dishwasher, and a glazed display cabinet with integral spotlighting, and the tile effect laminate flooring extends into the large dining area. Next to the kitchen is a utility room offering yet more storage including a second sink and plumbing for a washing machine which is included in the sale. Two clothes pulleys provide plenty of space for airing clothes whilst a half-glazed door opens to the rear yard.

The remaining ground floor accommodation comprises a handy separate toilet with WC & wash hand basin, painted 'v'-lining to a dado rail being an attractive feature, and a carpeted single bedroom or office to the front of the house.

The carpeted stairs lead up to the first floor landing with doors to two generously proportioned double bedrooms both with extensive built-in wardrobe / cupboard space, and a large shower room. The bedroom to the right is particularly bright thanks to two Velux windows which enjoy the view over to the Ness of Sound in the distance. This room has a hatch to floored storage space in the loft. The other bedroom to the left has a built-in shelved linen cupboard in addition to the wardrobe space.

The large wet wall-lined shower room has a run of fitted units along one wall providing plenty of space for toiletries and general storage and also conceal the plumbing. The large shower has a wall mounted power shower with additional body jets.

Thanks again for your brilliant service with both my property sales over the past years. Your experience in Shetland is much noted with local people.

Selling my house whilst living in Edinburgh was a daunting prospect but I should not have worried. The communications between both parties was easy and the sale of my property went through without any hitches.
