Representing a great opportunity to get a first step on the property ladder, or an ideal holiday home or buy-to-let, Chalet 6 is a refurbished detached timber framed & clad chalet in a group of ten similar chalets at Wormadale just 10 miles from Lerwick

Chalet 6 is situated at one end of the group in the front row and therefore benefits from the fantastic unrestricted view southwards along Whiteness Voe and the South Whiteness peninsula, one of the best views in Shetland.

The 'walk-into', double glazed accommodation comprises a modern shower room, open-plan, particularly bright living / dining room with fitted kitchen area, all appliances included, plus a bedroom / dressing area upstairs. Electric heating.

The sale will include all fixed floor coverings, the curtains & blinds, as well as the white goods and remaining furniture and contents which would be of particular interest to anyone wishing to rent it out either for holiday use (it was used for summer rentals) or on a permanent basis

General Information

Chalet 6 is situated approximately 10 miles west of Lerwick in the attractive setting of Wormadale which lies at the head of Whiteness Voe, the location meaning the town is within easy commuting distance by car or by bus as westside bus services run along the main westside road a short distance from the chalet.

Amenities in the immediate area include a local shop about ¾ mile from the property on the main road, a primary school about a mile further on, and a second shop with post office & fuel, at Weisdale, a mile past the school



The uPVC double glazed front door opens to a hallway with white panelled doors to the living room and shower room, a recess to the side providing space for coats etc., and also having plumbing for a washing machine which is included in the sale, an electric panel heater and wood effect vinyl flooring which extends into the living area & shower room.

Cross the cattle grid and carry straight on to Wormadale following the road up and around the left. The access to the chalets is on the left shortly after the modern brown wooden house on the right; Chalet 6 being the first chalet in the front row.

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.
