Living room, kitchen / diner, two double bedrooms, bathroom, Hallway / landing & stairs. Two sheds.
Renovated two bedroom semi-detached house which would make an excellent first-time buy, set in a good-sized corner plot in a particularly leafy area of Scalloway within walking distance of amenities including local shopping, the school, swimming pool & doctor’s surgery.
The property was extensively refurbished about three years ago, the work including a new kitchen and bathroom, re-plumbing and complete redecoration and new floor coverings throughout.
In addition to two double bedrooms, the ‘walk-into’ accommodation includes a good-sized living room, a large kitchen with space for a table & chairs, and a bathroom with bath with electric shower over.
Windows are double-glazed and heating is provided by storage heaters and a multi-fuel stove in the living room.
Externally there are established garden areas to the front, side and rear, with mature shrubs and planting along the perimeters providing privacy, two sheds and a timber decked seating area.
Meadowfield Road is situated in an unusually leafy area of Scalloway which is situated on the west coast of Shetland approximately five miles from Lerwick.
A range of local amenities are within walking distance of the house including the school, swimming pool & doctor’s surgery, as well as local shopping on Main Street including a couple of general stores and a chemist / post office, a garage, youth centre, hotel, boating club & marina, and vets surgery. Around the harbour at Port Arthur is the NAFC Marine Centre part of the University of the Highlands & Islands.
The property was extensively renovated by the current owners in 2013, the work including a new fitted kitchen and flooring, a new bathroom suite again with new flooring with under-floor heating, installation of a multi-fuel stove in the living room, re-plumbing and installation of a new twin immersion / hot water tank. The property was also completely re-decorated and new carpeting and underlay laid.
The sale will include all carpets and other fixed floor coverings, curtains & blinds, and light fittings.

Being a corner plot the property has a larger garden than usual this being enclosed by a low wall to the street and by wooden fencing elsewhere.
A gate from the road leads up to the side entrance door with lawns to either side bordered by lots of established planting which provides privacy and seclusion. There is also a very well-established mature tree and a wooden garden shed.
The path continues around to the rear where there is a cold water tap outside the back door and a small fuel store.
The long back garden which faces west therefore enjoys the afternoon and evening sun, extends for some distance and has a tall fence to one side and a mature hedge to the other. There is a lawn / drying green, further garden shed plus a decked seating area behind it.
Understood to currently be Band B. Prospective purchasers should however contact Shetland Islands Council directly for confirmation. Details of Council Tax rates can be found on the Shetland Islands Council website.

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.
