3 double bedrooms, living room, kitchen / living / dining room, bathroom & integral double garage.


Set in an easily kept, low maintenance, fenced garden with tarred parking outside of the substantial integral double garage (with electric garage door), 1 Longland is a single storey detached house in 'walk-into' condition, which has been extensively upgraded in recent years including a very spacious re-modelled and re-fitted kitchen / living / dining room, and a new family bathroom with roll-top bath and separate walk-in shower. All the skirtings and facings have been replaced and new internal doors in an oak finish fitted.

Central heating is provided by the latest Dimplex 'Quantum' storage heaters with 'Futura' eco panel heaters in the bedrooms, a contemporary style solid-fuel stove in the living room providing a cosy additional heat source. The remaining accommodation comprises a west-facing living room and three double bedrooms.

Viewing highly recommended.



Entry to the property is via a ramped access which leads along the north side of the house to an entrance vestibule with tiled floor and glazed inner door to the carpeted hall. The kitchen is to the left, a glazed door ahead opens to the living room, whilst to the right the hall continues to the three bedrooms and the bathroom, two built-in cupboards providing space for coats and storage. At the end a door opens to the sizeable integral garage. Storage heater. A hatch with pull-down ladder provides easy access to floored storage space in the loft.

The room has plenty of natural light thanks to the dual aspect, all the windows having venetian blinds, and 'Quick Step' laminate flooring throughout. The kitchen units which have white doors to the floor units and sahara grey doors to the wall units, finished off by grey worktops and matching upstands, provide extensive cupboard and worktop space and include an inset 1½ bowl sink with mixer tap / hose fitting and waste disposal unit, two corner carousels, pull-out units either side of the dual-fuel 'Leisure Cuisine' range cooker which is included in the sale and has a glass splashback and stainless steel cooker hood over, an integral wine cooler plus a handy tall pull-out larder unit to the side of the fridge / freezer which is available by separate negotiation.

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.
