Situated in a great very central Lerwick location at the south end of Commercial Street, a short stroll through the historic Lodberries area of Lerwick (home to 'Shetland' TV detective Jimmy Perez's house) from the small boat harbour and shops, cafes etc. on Commercial Street, 1 Stouts Court is a two bedroom 'walk-into' flat which would make an ideal first time buy or buy-to-let.
The flat which is situated on the upper ground floor of a block comprising seven flats above a small office, is double glazed with heating provided by electric storage / panel heaters.
In addition to two double bedrooms, the accommodation which is decorated in light neutral colours throughout, also includes a good-sized dual-aspect living room with a fine view across the Sound to Bressay, a breakfasting kitchen (appliances included) and shower room.
There are also two handy stores on the landing outside the flat, plus shared use of a further storeroom and a large paved drying green.
Access to the flat is via a shared stair serving the seven flats in the block, the stair also providing access to the shared paved drying green to the rear of the building. No.1 is on the ground floor to the right, two handy store cupboards on the landing outside the door to the flat providing useful lockable storage space, the larger store having a power supply and therefore being able to house a freezer etc.
The door to the flat opens to a hallway with space for coats etc. with a fitted meter cupboard over, solid wood flooring and glazed doors to the kitchen and living room, the attractive fitted kitchen having a breakfast bar, inset stainless steel sink, stainless steel cooker hood, plumbing for a washing machine and colourfully tiled splash backs. The cooker, fridge / freezer and washing machine will be included in the sale which will be of interest to first time buyers. Tile effect laminate is laid to the floor.
The carpeted living room is a good-sized, particularly bright, dual-aspect room with two large windows both with wooden venetian blinds allowing for a fine view across the Sound to Bressay. Off the living room and accessed via a further glazed door is a small lobby with solid pine ledge & brace doors to two carpeted double bedrooms, both a good size and facing west, and a shower room. Bedroom 1 has a built-in airing cupboard housing the hot water tank; bedroom 2 has a built-in wardrobe.
The shower room comprises a wet-wall lined shower with glazed screen / door plus a white WC and wash hand basin, painted wood paneling concealing the toilet cistern and providing a handy cupboard space for toiletries etc. below the sink which has a large wall mirror over. Heated towel rail and wood laminate flooring.
The sale will include all carpets and other fixed floor coverings, the blinds and light fittings.
