Rare opportunity to acquire a modern, two bedroom, end-terrace town house in a great, very central, Lerwick conservation area location by the Town Hall, with amenities including shops, cafés etc. on Commercial Street and the small boat harbour area conveniently close at hand.
Forming part of a modern development completed in 2000, the property provides spacious, 'walk-into' accommodation arranged over two floors comprising a triple aspect living / dining room, fitted kitchen and large family bathroom on the ground floor, plus two generously proportioned double bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room, upstairs.
Central heating is provided by the Lerwick District Heating System supplemented by underfloor heating to the two bath / shower rooms.
The property provides an excellent Lerwick base or would be an ideal rental property, particularly for holiday use.
This attractive end-terrace property forms part of a detached building built to a high standard and specification by Dennis Thomson Builders in 2000, the building comprising 10b, an office on the ground floor plus a second self-catering unit upstairs. In keeping with the conservation area location, the building was designed to blend in with surrounding properties with the use of traditional materials including a natural slate roof with conservation style double glazed roof lights, and wet-harling to the walls. Central heating is provided by the Lerwick District Heating Scheme, the heat exchanger unit in a cupboard off the hall supplying radiators throughout the property supplemented by cosy, electric underfloor heating to the bathroom and en-suite shower room.
The property is being sold with all carpets and other fixed floor coverings, curtains & blinds, and light fittings included in the sale. The furniture is available by separate negotiation.
On the Ground Floor:-
Entry to the property is from the stone flagged lane which runs between the swimming pool car park and Charlotte Street, the double glazed front door opening to a vestibule with coat hooks and glazed double doors to the hall, the solid mahogany flooring extending into the hall and the living / dining room.
Like the rest of the property the hall has pine internal doors and pine finishes to the skirtings and door surrounds. On the right glazed double doors open to the large west-facing living / dining room, whilst on the left are doors to the kitchen, bathroom and two handy built-in cupboards, one of which is fitted with shelving and additional coat hooks.

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.
