Benefitting from spacious accommodation all on the one level, and oil-fired central heating, 'Dalesview' is an attractive, four bedroom detached property in a secluded setting at the head of Dales Voe, 3 miles north of the village of Voe, and 22 miles north of Lerwick.
In addition to four double bedrooms, one presently used as an office, all having built-in wardrobe / cupboard space, the very well-presented, double glazed accommodation also features a very generously proportioned sittingroom, a fantastic south-facing conservatory which provides a great extra living space, and a 25' kitchen / dining room with breakfast bar and integral appliances. The family bathroom has a bath and separate shower, and there is an en-suite shower room to the master bedroom.
Immediately in front of the house is a large south-facing paved patio area with further garden area to the side. The shoreline of the voe lies a short distance from the house.
'Dalesview' is situated approximately three miles north of the village of Voe, a convenient location for easy access to Brae (approx. 6 miles) and Sullom Voe (approx. 10 miles) yet still within easy commuting distance of Lerwick.
Amenities in Voe include a local shop which also sells fuel, a village hall plus a marina at Lower Voe. Further facilities are however available at Brae, the main population centre for the North Mainland area where there is a High School, swimming pool / leisure centre, Co-op mini-supermarket & health centre.
Further information on the local area is available at:-
The property is fully double glazed and benefits from central heating provided by an oil-fired boiler in the utility room. There is also a central vacuuming system.
The sale will include all carpets and other fitted floor coverings, the curtains & blinds, and light fittings.
The main entrance to the house is via the large conservatory, a great south-facing, wood-lined space which provides a useful extra living area. The room which benefits from central heating, has a tiled floor and glazed doors leading to the kitchen / dining room to the left, and the hall to the bedrooms to the right. Ahead double doors open to the sittingroom, another generously proportioned space, this time with wood laminate flooring. An electric flame effect fire set in a wooden surround creates an attractive focal point but again there is also a central heating radiator. A feature centre light and matching wall fittings, all controlled by dimmer switches, provides artificial light.
A further glazed door from the sittingroom opens to the kitchen / dining room, again of spacious proportions, with a bright dining area with wood laminate flooring at one end separated from the kitchen by a peninsular breakfast bar. Extensive fitted units include an integral gas oven & gas hob with 'brick' tiled splash back & cooker hood over, plus a concealed fridge / freezer and dishwasher. The kitchen has tile effect laminate flooring.
A door to the rear of the kitchen leads to a large utility room with side entrance and additional fitted units providing yet more storage space and including a second sink, plumbing for a washing machine (appliance not included) and space for the central heating boiler. A run of hooks provides plenty of space for coats etc and the clothes pulley will remain. Off the utility room is a handy separate toilet with WC & wash hand basin.
A second door from the utility room leads to one of the bedrooms, a double room to the rear of the house, currently used as an office, with wood laminate flooring and a built-in wardrobe / cupboard which also houses the central vacuum system unit. This room also has a door to the carpeted hall which leads back past the three other bedrooms to the sittingroom and conservatory. The hall has a shelved linen cupboard and a hatch with pull-down ladder provides easy access to the substantial loft space part of which has been lined out to provide several storage spaces, one housing the 'Megaflo' water tank. You can stand up in the centre of the loft and therefore it may be possible to develop the loft space to provide additional accommodation although this would be subject to the usual consents required and prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves in this regard.
Next to bedroom 1 is a striking wet-wall lined family bathroom comprising a contemporary style white suite including double ended bath with centre mixer tap & shower fitting, plus a separate shower, and three good-sized carpeted double bedrooms all with built-in wardrobe space concealed behind sliding mirror doors. Bedrooms 2 & 3 face east, bedroom 4, the principal bedroom, faces south and benefits from a en-suite shower room with large shower, WC & wash hand basin.

To reach the property drive to Voe and take the A968 road northwards towards the North Isles Ferry & Mossbank. 'Dalesview' is one of a pair of houses which are the last properties on the right (lower) side of the road just before Dales Voe, the houses being three miles past the local hall in Voe. 'Dalesview' is the second of the two houses which are accessed via a shared track.

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.
