Offering a great first time buy or ‘buy-to-let’ / rental possibility, 100 North Lochside is a beautifully presented, two bedroom, end-terraced property in a very convenient location with amenities including the Clickimin Leisure Centre (just across the road), primary & secondary schooling, the hospital and Tesco’s all within easy walking distance. The location of the property means it enjoys an open west-facing aspect and super views over to Clickimin Loch.
The property has been extensively refurbished over the past year including new triple glazed uPVC windows, a lovely fitted kitchen, all appliances included, and a similarly well-finished shower room. The living / dining room is a good-sized space with large windows to the front and rear allowing in plenty of natural light, and there is also a handy separate downstairs cloakroom. The property has also been freshly re-decorated and fitted with new hardwearing 'Karndean' flooring throughout. Garden areas to the front and rear, handy off-street parking space, and a garden shed.
Most of the furniture is available by separate negotiation.
Early viewing recommended.
The uPVC front door opens to a hallway with coat hooks, storage space under the stairs behind glass fronted doors, and doors to the living / dining room and a handy extra cloakroom with white WC and wash hand basin. To the right a carpeted stair lit by a window to the front of the house leads to the first floor.
The hard wearing wood effect 'Karndean' flooring in the hallway extends into the cloakroom and also the living / dining room, a good-sized, bright room with large windows at either end, the window to the front of the house enjoying the great view westwards to Clickimin Loch. Lighting is provided by recessed ceiling spotlights controlled by several dimmer switches and there is a 'Dimplex Quantum' storage / convector heater.
A door from the dining area leads to the beautifully re-fitted ‘Shaker’ style kitchen, contemporary style grey doored units set off by wood effect worktops and matching upstands, and natural stone strip wall tiles to the splash backs, the well-designed layout making maximum use of the available space and including an integral oven & hob, concealed dishwasher and washing machine, several glazed display cabinets with glass shelving and integral spotlighting, and an inset 1½ bowl sink below the south-facing window. The fridge / freezer housed in a recess with fitted cubby holes around it, will be included in the sale. Again lighting is provided by recessed ceiling spotlighting, supplemented by additional worktop lights, and the room has the same hard wearing 'Karndean' flooring. The uPVC door leads to the back garden.
Back off the hallway, the carpeted stair leads up to a landing also with the same 'Karndean' flooring which extends throughout the whole of the first floor accommodation. The landing is lit by a side window to the south, and a built-in shelved cupboard provides space for linens etc. Hatch to the loft space.
Off the landing are two good-sized double bedrooms, the main bedroom 1 being situated to the front of the house and enjoying the westerly aspect and fine open views. The second bedroom has a large window looking out over the back garden, and a built-in wardrobe. Finally the shower room has also been completely re-fitted in the past year and is a particularly attractive space finished mostly with large ceramic wall tiles but with the same natural stone strip tiling around the WC. The large walk-in shower has a 'rainfall' shower head and separate hand held fitting, a glazed screen, and also a built-in tiled seat, whilst the wash hand basin is set on a fitted cupboard unit with handy storage space for toiletries etc. below, and further mirror doored cabinet over. Recessed ceiling spotlighting and electric ladder style heated towel rail.
Heating is provided by a Dimplex Quantum storage heater. Hot water is provided by a mains pressure hot water cylinder housed in the loft space. New high quality roller blinds have been fitted to the windows in the living room, stairs and both bedrooms, and this are included in the sale.
Planning permission (Reference 2012/375) was granted in 2013 for extending the property to provide an extended living room, additional porch and store, plus study to the rear. This permission has now lapsed however it does suggest that a fresh application for extending the property should be possible although prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves in this regard by contacting the local planning department directly for further advice.

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.
We have availed ourselves of services provided by Harper Macleod of Lerwick, both in buying and selling residential property. Our needs on both these occasions were fully met and the service provided by them made our task in these circumstances, seemingly without effort.
