2 double bedrooms, living room, dining kitchen & shower room.


Traditional stone-built, two bedroom, semi-detached property situated by the Town Hall right in the centre of Lerwick, within walking distance of Commercial Street, North Ness Business Park, Mareel cinema & music venue, Shetland Museum & the Toll Clock.

In addition to two large double bedrooms both enjoying views across to Bressay, the double glazed accommodation also includes a living room with solid-fuel stove, a spacious kitchen with room for a table & chairs and integral appliances, and a shower room.

Heating is presently provided by electric storage / panel heaters plus a solid-fuel fire in the living room, although the property is on the waiting list for a District Heating connection. Externally the property benefits from an enclosed garden area with lawn / drying green & garden shed.

Some updating would be beneficial which is reflected in the price, but nonetheless the property offers good-sized two bedroom accommodation with some period feaures remaining, in this great, very central location.

By the window which again overlooks the garden, is a sink with additional cupboard space below plus a tiled worktop to the side with plumbing below for a washing machine which is included in the sale, and a built-in cupboard housing the hot water tank.

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.
