13 Fullaburn is situated about 1½ miles from the ferry terminal on the island of Bressay which lies off the east coast of Shetland just across Bressay Sound from Lerwick.
The island which has a population of around 360 is served by a quick five minute ro-ro ferry service which runs to the Esplanade right in the centre of Lerwick, the service generally running hourly throughout the day with extra crossings at peak times.
Amenities on Bressay itself include the shop & post office just ½ mile from the house, plus a community hall, heritage centre, a small hotel with bar & restaurant, and a marina, although the frequent ferry service means amenities in the town are relatively easily accessible. During the summer months it is possible to access the neighbouring uninhabited island of Noss at the southern end of Bressay, an important national nature reserve notable for its bird life.
The sale will include all carpets and other fixed floor coverings, the fitted blinds, and light fittings, plus the gas cooker.
The property is accessed via a lobby with under-stairs recess providing space for a washing machine & tumble dryer (appliances not included). From here a door opens to the kitchen, a large bright space thanks to windows to the front and rear, the window to the dining area enjoying the fantastic view across to Lerwick. Wood effect vinyl flooring matching that in the lobby, is laid throughout, lighting is provided by two ceiling mounted spotlight fittings. Fitted units provide plenty of cupboard & worktop space with a peninsula unit separating the dining area from the kitchen, the units including a pair of glazed cabinets either side of the gas cooker (included in sale) with cooker hood over. There is also plumbing for a dishwasher (appliance not included).
A doorway from the kitchen leads to the hall with doors to the living room, a ground floor bedroom, the bathroom and a further lobby leading to the back garden. A carpeted stair lit by a large Velux window over the half-landing leads to the first floor, a handy pull-out storage unit under the stairs providing additional storage space.
Like the kitchen, the carpeted living room is also situated at the front of the house, this room having a wide triple window enjoying the view over the front garden and beyond to Lerwick. Heating here is provided by storage / convector heater and the centre light is controlled by a dimmer switch.
The carpeted single bedroom is presently used as an office, whilst the wet-wall lined bathroom comprises a modern white suite with electric shower & glazed screen over the bath. Slate tile effect laminate flooring & heated towel rail.
Off the landing is a large built-in shelved airing cupboard which houses the hot water tank, and the two carpeted double bedrooms, the main bedroom having a large Velux window with integral blackout blind to the rear of the house and a wardrobe recess; the Velux window in the second room, again with integral blackout blind, enjoys the view across to Lerwick.

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.
