3 bedrooms, living room, kitchen / diner, bathroom, porch / utility area & substantial lined & insulated loft store area
Mid-terraced property in very central Lerwick location a few minutes' walk from Commercial Street and all its amenities, and the small boat harbour.
Situated at the end of a small cul-de-sac off Lovers Loan, the property comprises a good-sized, dual-aspect living room, modern fitted kitchen / diner and porch / utility area on the ground floor, and three bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor, one of the bedrooms having a fixed stair to a substantial lined and insulated store room in the loft space which could potentially be used as a bedroom on completion of further works.
The external walls, loft space and underfloor have all recently been insulated with 'Kingspan'.
Externally there is a parking area to the front plus a fenced garden to the rear which enjoys a sunny westerly aspect.
Great first time buy in a convenient location.
Entry to the property is through the front yard which provides a handy off-street parking space, the space for a bench by the front door facing east and enjoying the morning sun. The front door opens to a porch / utility area with fitted worktop with space below for appliances including plumbing for a washing machine (appliances not included), tile effect vinyl flooring, a storage heater and inner door to a carpeted lobby with door to the living room and carpeted stair to the first floor.
The living room is a bright good-sized space with windows to the front and rear and wood laminate flooring throughout. Heating is provided by a storage heater although it is understood that the fireplace recess which currently houses an electric flame effect fire, could be used for a solid-fuel stove if required although this has not been tested. At the rear a door opens to the kitchen / diner, the dining area having a west-facing window and door to the back garden, the kitchen window facing east and enjoying the view across to Bressay, and modern units with white 'brick' tiled splash backs and worktop lighting including a concealed cooker hood, inset sink, plumbing for a dishwasher (appliance not included) & corner carousel. The free-standing cooker will remain. Three built-in cupboards provide additional storage space, one for coats and another a shelved pantry cupboard, with further storage space under the stairs. Tile effect laminate flooring throughout.
The carpeted stair leads up to the first floor landing where there is a storage heater, built-in linen cupboard and doors to three carpeted bedrooms one of which has the loft access, all the bedrooms having panel heaters. The principal bedroom is situated to the front of the house and therefore enjoys the great view over the harbour approach to Bressay. Bedroom two which has a built-in wardrobe is situated to the rear so west-facing. Bedroom three also enjoys the views across to Bressay and has a wardrobe recess and stair to the loft space.
The tiled bathroom comprises a white three piece suite, the bath having an electric shower over. Large fitted wall mirror with light over, & heated towel rail.
The carpeted stair off bedroom three provides easy access to the substantial lined and insulated carpeted store room in the attic which has a Velux window with integral blind, ample power sockets & recessed ceiling spotlighting. The sellers' planned to create a bedroom up here with plumbing already in place in the space to the left of the stair perhaps being used to house a WC & wash hand basin, however some additional work to complete this project would be required to comply with building regulations. Prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves in this regard.

In addition to the front yard the property has a fenced lawn / drying green to the rear which is something of a sun trap thanks to its west-facing aspect, the space getting in the afternoon and evening. A gate provides access to a footpath leading along the rear of the adjoining properties back to the main road providing easy access for a pram etc.

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.
