Set in a good-sized fenced garden by the local primary school in this popular location just 5 miles from Lerwick and all its amenities, 18 Gaet-A-Gott is a two bedroom, semi-detached property offering a great first time buy opportunity.
Completed in 2014 with the reassurance of NHBC cover, the property enjoys a southerly aspect, the single storey accommodation comprising the two bedrooms, both with built-in wardrobes, a large south-facing living room, kitchen / diner, bathroom and porch / utility area.
Under floor central heating is provided by an air-to-water heat pump and the property has a heat recovery and ventilation system.
Externally there are fenced garden areas to the front and rear, the back garden being a particularly good-sized.
This is not a shared ownership property.
The Gaet-A-Gott development is conveniently situated next to the local primary school at Tingwall, a rural location conveniently situated within easy commuting distance of Lerwick and all of its amenities, just five miles away. As well as being within easy reach of the town, the location means the property is also well placed for access to Brae / Sullom Voe and the north. In addition to the school there is a playpark and community hall close by.
Entry to the property is via a porch / utility area lit by a window to the front of the house, the space having a utility area with worktop with plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble dryer below, and a built-in meter cupboard above. The wood laminate flooring continues into the hall where doors open to the living room, the two bedrooms and bathroom, two built-in cupboards providing storage space, one being shelved, the other also housing the hot water tank and heating controls etc. with a clothes pulley over. A hatch provides access to the loft.
The good-sized living room has a wide window to the front facing south and therefore the room gets the sun for a good part of the day, and again there is wood laminate flooring. Double doors to the rear of the room open to a fitted kitchen / diner, again a good-size, with space for a table & chairs and fitted units including an inset sink and cooker hood, the units having matching worktops and upstands. The flooring is slate tile effect vinyl. The window to the rear looks out over the back garden.
Back off the hall the two carpeted bedrooms both have a built-in double wardrobe with shelf & hanging rail, the larger bedroom 1 being situated to the rear, bedroom 2 to the front. Finally there is a family bathroom with white three piece suite, the bath having a wet wall-lined shower area and shower fitting over. Vinyl flooring.

Gaet-A-Gott is situated by Tingwall Primary School on the Strand loop road off the main road north, the junction to the Gaet-A-Gott houses being just to the south of the school and the brightly coloured houses at the Strand. Turn into Gaet-A-Gott and then turn first right following the road around to the left to another junction on the left. No. 18 is the right hand house of the pair of semi-detached properties on the left hand corner just past the junction.
The Strand loop road which runs along the north side of Strand Loch, continues westwards to meet up again with the main road north to Voe, Brae etc.

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.
