• 2 bedrooms • living room • kitchen / diner • bathroom • large loft & cellar


Two bedroom, mid-terraced property situated right in the heart of Lerwick's town centre off Mounthooly Street, a short stroll from shops, cafés etc. on Commercial Street, and the small boat harbour.

In addition to two double bedrooms, the accommodation comprises a generously proportioned living room, kitchen / diner and bathroom with electric over-bath shower.

Windows are triple or double glazed and heating is provided by electric storage heaters.

Externally there is a small, easily maintained garden area to the rear.

The property provides a good-sized two bedroom house which would make an ideal first time buy or rental property.


On the Ground Floor:-


The main entrance is to the north side of the house (opposite the Mounthooly Place flats), the front door opening to a hall with a window to the front, wood effect laminate flooring, coat hooks, storage heater and doors to the living room and kitchen. Below the stair to the first floor is handy built-in shelved cupboard, a hatch to the substantial cellar which extends under the whole area of the house, and a meter cupboard.

Living Room

The fireplace recess with tiled hearth used to house a solid-fuel stove although this was removed however it is thought it should be possible to re-instate this although the chimney should be checked and purchasers should satisfy themselves in this regard.

Kitchen / Diner

(Kitchen - approx. 2.9m x 2.45m) (9'6" x 8'); Dining Area - approx. 2.5m x 2.05m (8'3" x 6'9")) The kitchen, which is situated to the rear of the house with a door to the back garden, is larger than the surrounding properties as this house was extended to provide a dining area overlooking the garden. The fitted units include a small breakfast bar, cooker hood with external vent, inset 1½ bowl sink plus plumbing for a washing machine which is included in the sale. The cooker and fridge / freezer are available by separate negotiation. Laminate flooring matching that in the hall, & storage heater.

The stair leads up to a small landing with wood effect laminate flooring which extends into both bedrooms. A hatch with pull-down ladder provides easy access to extensive storage space in the floored loft which has a Velux roof light.
