Situated in a very central but secluded location a stone's throw from Commercial Street and therefore within easy reach of the small boat harbour area and shops, café’s etc., 15 Hangcliff Lane is a three bedroom, stone-built, detached house in the sought-after Lanes area of Lerwick.

Arranged over three floors, the double glazed accommodation which has electric storage / panel heating, comprises a stylish fitted kitchen / diner with additional utility space off, and a modern bathroom with over-bath shower on the ground floor, a good-sized, dual-aspect living room and double bedroom on the first floor, plus two further double bedrooms on the second floor. Included in the kitchen is a full range of appliances.

A small garden area by the property provides some outside space which enjoys a fine view across the harbour area to Bressay.

Great first time buy or Lerwick base / letting property particularly for holiday use, given its location.


The front door to the property opens to a large hallway with kitchen to the right and the bathroom and stairs to the first floor to the left, both the kitchen and the bathroom having doors in an oak finish, a recess to the side of the stairs providing space for coats etc. Tile effect vinyl is laid to the floor.

The kitchen which has ample space for a table and chairs, (and also the adjoining utility space) was completely stripped out and re-lined and insulated by the current owner when they bought the property five years ago, contemporary white units set off by woodblock effect worktops providing plenty of storage space and including an integral oven / grill, separate combi microwave / oven / grill, five ring induction hob with black glass splash back and stainless steel & glass cooker hood over, plus a concealed integrated fridge / freezer, another separate freezer, and dishwasher, plus an inset 1 ½ bowl sink with ‘Insinkerator’ waste disposal unit. The room has two windows to the side lane, and a third window to the front, whilst artificial light is provided by recessed ceiling spotlighting supplemented by additional worktop lights. Brushed chrome electrical fittings add a stylish touch.

Off the kitchen is a further utility area with matching fitted units providing additional storage, plus space for a washing machine & tumble dryer, both of which will be included in the sale.

The modern bathroom comprises a white three piece suite including a bath with wet-wall lined shower area over with 'rainfall' shower head & glazed shower screen, a WC with concealed cistern, plus an inset wash hand basin below the window. A couple of recesses provide handy space for toiletries etc. and there is tile effect laminate flooring and a ladder style heated towel rail.

The stair from the hall, which is lit by a window to the side of the house, leads up to a small landing on the first floor with window to the front, both windows having wooden venetian blinds. The stairs and both landings are carpeted. On this floor are the living room and a double bedroom. The living room is a good-sized, attractive space again with three windows, one to the front of the house and two to the side lane both enjoying an open outlook, again all having wooden venetian blinds. A cast-iron, wood burning stove set in a fireplace with stone hearth provides a cosy heat source. Built-in shelves provide space for cd's etc. Fitted carpet. The carpeted bedroom faces south and has a window blind.

Finally the stairs continue up to the second floor landing lit by a Velux window with integral blind, a built-in cupboard housing the 'Megaflo' water tank, a hatch providing access to the loft. There are two bedrooms on this floor, both carpeted doubles with Velux windows with integral blinds, and both having painted ceiling beams which add a touch of character. The main room ahead which also has a second gable window to the side, enjoys a view over the roof of the house opposite across the sound to the island of Bressay. The wardrobe in this room is included. The second bedroom which has two Velux windows facing west is presently used as a hobby / office space.

The living room and the top two bedrooms have TV & telephone points.

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.
