• 3 double bedrooms • living room • kitchen / diner • bathroom & separate shower room • substantial shed / work shop
Good-sized, three double bedroom / two bathroom, semi-detached property set in a well-established fenced garden in a convenient Lerwick location for both Sound Primary & Anderson High Schools, Clickimin Leisure Centre & Tesco's supermarket.
Thanks to its elevated position the property enjoys a fine open aspect over Lower Sound generally towards the Ness of Sound and the sea in the distance.
The double glazed accommodation comprises a living room, kitchen / diner & bathroom on the ground floor, with three double bedrooms and a shower room upstairs. A pull-down lader provides easy access to the substantial floored & lined loft space which offers potential for development, subject to consents. Heating is by electric storage heaters. The white goods and furniture are available by separate negotiation.
There is a substantial 23' x 15' shed / workshop with power in the back garden.
Great starter family home.
Entry to the property is via a path through the front garden to the front door and a vestibule with fitted meter cupboard and glazed door to the hall lit by a side window, with wood laminate flooring. Two built-in cupboards, one housing the 'Megaflo' hot water tank, the other having plenty of space for coats etc., with further storage space under the carpeted stairs to the first floor.
On the left is the good-sized living room which enjoys the fine view from the house. A wall-mounted electric flame effect fire creates an attractive focal point but there is also a storage / convector heater. Centre & wall lighting, & wood laminate flooring. Behind the living room is a large kitchen / diner with space for a table & chairs and fitted units including a cooker hood and plumbing for a dishwasher & washing machine which are available by separate negotiation along with the electric cooker and fridge / freezer. Storage heater with clothes pulley over, tile effect vinyl flooring and window & door to the back garden. Next to the kitchen is a bright bathroom attractively finished with painted 'v'-lining below a dado rail, with three piece suite.
The stairs lead up to a landing again lit by a window to the side of the property, with storage heater and doors to three carpeted double bedrooms, bedrooms 1 & 2 both situated to the front of the house and again enjoying the views, each also having a built-in wardrobe. Bedroom 3 looks out over the back garden. Also on the first floor is a handy separate shower room with wet-wall lined shower enclosure, WC & wash hand basin.
A hatch with pull-down ladder provides easy access to the substantial floored and lined loft space lit by two Velux windows. Plenty of power points are provided making this a great hobby or alternatively it provides a huge amount of easily accessible storage space. The floor-to-ceiling height in the centre is 2.4m (7'10"); the space could therefore potentially be further developed to provide additional living accommodation subject to the usual consents required.

Important Information for Prospective Purchasers
This schedule is intended only to help you decide whether to view the property. We always recommend you view the property personally.
The information is believed to be correct, but it is not warranted and is not to form part of any contract of sale. All dates, distances, areas and room sizes noted are approximate and for use as a general guide only. Prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves as to the working condition or otherwise of any equipment such as central heating or kitchen appliances.
This schedule should not be taken as a comment on the condition of the property. This is a matter for your surveyor and we recommend that once you have found a property you are interested in, you obtain a survey report. We can provide details of surveyors if required.
Interested parties are advised to note their interest through their solicitor as soon as possible so that they can be informed if a closing date is fixed. Noting interest does not place any obligation on the seller to set a closing date or to give any noted interests the opportunity to offer. Whilst every effort will be made to advise noted interests of any closing date set, this cannot be guaranteed.
No responsibility will be accepted for expenses incurred by parties who have noted interest but do not get an opportunity to offer, or for any expenses incurred traveling to properties which have been sold or withdrawn.
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.
