Rare opportunity to acquire a distinctive detached house tucked away in a small cul-de-sac between Lovers Lane and the south end of Commercial Street, a very convenient central location a short stroll through the historic Lodberries area and past fictional TV detective Jimmy Perez's house to the small boat harbour, Commercial Street and town centre amenities.

The accommodation is arranged over two floors with the main rooms being on the first floor allowing the two reception rooms including a lovely bright sittingroom with additional sun room off, and one of the bedrooms to benefit from the fine view over the harbour area across to Bressay.

The remaining accommodation comprises two double bedrooms, an office or single bedroom with large shelved store room off, plus a modern fitted kitchen, bathroom and separate shower room.

The manageable garden has off-street tarred parking for two or three cars to the front plus a large, quite secluded paved patio area to the rear.

Although some elements of the property would benefit from updating, this unusual property is particularly light and airy internally with a lot of character for a 'modern' (1970's) house
