Living room, kitchen / diner, shower room, three bedrooms, hall & vestibule.


Three bedroom, single storey detached house, set in a mainly grassed site just to the south of the village of North Roe in the North Mainland of Shetland, approximately 36 miles from Lerwick.

The house faces south and enjoys a fine open view across croftland to the Voe of Collafirth in the distance.

In addition to three bedrooms, the accommodation also includes a living room and kitchen / diner, both enjoying a dual-aspect, and a shower room.

The property would benefit from upgrading which is reflected in the price, although it has recently been re- decorated and represents a good starter home or would suit use a holiday property / rental
