Newly redecorated throughout, 84a North Road is a great two bedroom first time buy or rental property on the north side of Lerwick within easy walking distance of the Co-op supermarket, Toll Clock, Anderson High School and the Clickimin leisure centre.
The property benefits from a great view across the harbour area to Bressay which can be enjoyed from the kitchen or the large external seating area where there is access to storage space in a large cellar.
In addition to the two double bedrooms, the double glazed accommodation which is heated by electric storage / panel heaters, also includes a good-sized living room, kitchen with space for a table & chairs, and a bathroom with electric over-bath shower.
The white goods and furniture are available by separate negotiation.
The property forms part of a mainly stone-built semi-detached property fronting North Road, a later extension to the rear housing the kitchen & bathroom. Entry to 84a is down the alley to the right hand side of the building where the front door opens to a carpeted lobby with a short stair up to a hallway with doors to the kitchen and bathroom, and a storage heater.
Situated to the rear of the building the kitchen enjoys a fine view over the harbour area across to Bressay, two windows providing ample light. There is space for a table & chairs and the fitted units along one wall include an integral hob & double oven, an inset sink plus space for a fridge and separate freezer which are available by separate negotiation. A handy built-in shelved cupboard plus a further shelved recess over the hot water tank provide additional storage. Note the 'Rayburn' is not in working order. Artificial light is provided by recessed ceiling spotlights and there is laminate flooring & storage heater.
Next to the kitchen is the bathroom with electric over-bath shower, tiled floor & storage heater, and a hatch over the stairs provides access to some storage space in the loft.
Up from the hallway is a further passage leading to the living room and two carpeted double bedrooms, bedroom 1 having a window to the rear of the building and a large built-in double wardrobe, painted 'v' lining to one wall and the ceiling which has recess ceiling spot lights, being an attractive feature. Storage heater. The second bedroom is lit by a large Velux window and has a panel heater.
Finally a glazed door opens to the good-sized living room looking out to the street, again with feature painted 'v'-lining to one wall. Wall lighting is provided and there is a fitted carpet and storage / convector heater.
