General Information

Stunning, very spacious two double bedroom flat in great central Lerwick location within easy reach of amenities.

Forming part of a detached stone-built building comprising three flats (one on each floor), this first floor flat is beautifully presented throughout and provides a highly desirable property with great letting potential given that the accommodation includes two bath / shower rooms, one en-suite, and all the contents are available by separately negotiation, the well-proportioned living room and stunning kitchen / dining room being particular features.

The property benefits from its own exclusive back garden area where there is a large store with attached workshop which would make an ideal home office (subject to consents).

Viewing of this highly desirable property is essential.

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.
