Set in a well-established garden, 16 Isles Road is a three bedroom, semi-detached property conveniently situated within walking distance of the local shop in the village of Voe, approximately 6 miles from Brae, and 18 miles from Lerwick.
In addition to three double bedrooms, the accommodation also includes a generously proportioned 17’ living room, similarly sized kitchen with space for a table & chairs, and a bathroom. Electric heating.
The property benefits from an open aspect to the front and rear, and externally, in additional to a lovely front garden with several mature trees, there is also a large garage / workshop, separate shed and low maintenance stone chipped drying area to the rear.
The property would benefit from some updating, e.g. the kitchen and bathroom, which is reflected in the price, but nonetheless offers good-sized family accommodation with the benefit of the attractive outdoor space and two sheds.
16 Isles Road is situated within easy walking distance of the local shop (Tagon Stores which also sells fuels) in Voe, other amenities in the immediate area including the public hall by the house, and a marina at Lower Voe. Further amenities are however available in nearby Brae (approximately 5 miles), the main population centre for the North Mainland area, where there is a High School with primary and secondary school, a leisure centre / swimming pool, health centre, plus a Co-op supermarket and several other shops. The school bus for Brae stops at the hall by the house.
The location of the house puts it within easy reach of Sullom Voe oil terminal and the gas plant, both approximately 11 miles to the north, yet it is also within easy commuting distance of Lerwick, about 18 miles to the south, by car or by bus as the main Lerwick / Brae bus runs along the main road passing by the Tagon Junction.
The property is of ‘Cruden’ steel frame construction and therefore mortgage lending may be restricted.
Entry to the property is through the large well-established front garden, either by a path from the parking layby in front of the house or the ramped access from the side, both leading to the front door opening to a lobby with a handy shelved cupboard and door to the hall leading to the living room, kitchen and bathroom, a built-in cupboard under the stairs providing storage space. Laminate flooring which extends into the living room & kitchen.
A glazed door from the hall opens to the living room, a good-sized, particularly bright room with plenty of natural light provided by three windows looking out over the front garden. Next to the living room is the kitchen, again a large room, and also particularly bright thanks to a double window to the west (rear) side of the house, and also a second window facing north. There is plenty of space for a table & chairs and fitted units including a sink although replacement units would be desirable. Clothes pulley. Finally there is a wet-wall lined bathroom with three piece suite, the bath having an electric shower over. Ladder style heated towel rail & tile effect laminate flooring.
The stair from the hall leads up to a landing lit by a window to the front of the house, with doors to three double bedrooms and a built-in shelved airing cupboard housing hot water tank. A hatch with pull down ladder provides easy access to the large loft space.
All the bedrooms have built-in wardrobes. Bedrooms 1 & 2 face west and enjoy the open view to the rear of the house and over to the voe. Bedroom 1 has a built-in cupboard in addition to a wardrobe. Bedroom 3 is situated to the front of the house facing east.
