Well-presented, two / three bedroom ground floor flat in handy central Lerwick location within easy reach of amenities with Mareel cinema / music venue, the museum and North Ness business area being close by, and Commercial Street being within walking distance.

The flat occupies the whole ground floor of a traditional three storey stone-built building comprising just two properties. In addition to the three bedrooms, two spacious doubles and a box bedroom which would make an ideal office, the 'walk-into' accommodation also includes a good-sized living room, kitchen / diner plus a modern shower room. The garden area to the front of the building goes with the flat which also has its own sizeable garden shed and use of a shared drying green.

Most of the property was completely re-lined and insulated (including the floor) in 2017, which coupled with central heating provided by the Lerwick District Heating system and uPVC double glazing means the property offers modern standard of comfort within a traditional exterior.

Early viewing recommended.


Entry to the flat is through a front garden area which goes with the property, the space being laid out with gravel chips to one side, and a small area of lawn to the other flanked by established flower beds. A uPVC front door with feature glazed panel opens to a vestibule with wood effect vinyl flooring and glazed inner door to the carpeted hall, the hall and vestibule being attractively finished with grey wallpaper below white painted walls divided by a dado rail, and grey painted original doors lead to all rooms.

On the left is a good-sized living room with window with wooden slatted blind to St Magnus Street, and engineered oak flooring. There is a satellite TV connection which is also linked through to the main bedroom. On the right is a generously proportioned carpeted main bedroom which also looks out to the street, this window having a venetian blind.

To the rear is the kitchen, a shower room, and the two further bedrooms.

The kitchen has space for a table & chairs and white units set off by grey speckled worktops and matching upstands, and striking green tiled splash backs, the units including an inset sink below the window which looks out over the back garden, the window reveal providing additional worktop space. The cooker, fridge / freezer and washing machine will be included in the sale along with the clothes pulley / pan rack over the sink. A built-in cupboard houses the District Heating unit and grey wood effect vinyl is laid to the floor.

The attractive tiled shower room was completely re-fitted to a high standard in 2016, and now comprises a shower enclosure with 'rainfall' shower supplied by the District Heating, a glazed screen / door and contrasting grey wall tiles, plus a contemporary style white WC & wash hand basin with mixer tap and mirror over. Contrasting slate tiles are laid to the floor and a heated towel rail / radiator provides heating.

The two remaining bedrooms, both carpeted, are situated to the rear of the flat with windows looking out over the back garden, both with blinds. Bedroom 2 is another large double; box bedroom 3 would make a great home office space.

The sale will include all carpets and other fixed floor coverings, and blinds.

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.

Location Desired

Please do not select all locations - different areas in Shetland have quite different characteristics. For example, it would be unlikely that a property in Lerwick will be of interest to someone considering a croft house in Yell or Unst.
