Three bedroom / two reception room, single storey, semi-detached, extended property set in a larger than average site with a particularly secluded back garden bordered by established trees, on the north side of Lerwick.

The unexpectedly spacious accommodation comprises a living room, separate dining room, kitchen with vaulted ceiling and large window area overlooking the back garden, three double bedrooms, a bathroom and separate shower room, and therefore provides great family accommodation all on the one level.

The property also benefits from a substantial, floored and lined, 27' long loft space which can be stood up in in the centre and is easily accessed by a fixed stair from the hall.

There is a local shop just down the road and the Anderson High School and Clickimin leisure centre are just over the hill behind the house.


Entrance Hallway

Entry to the property is via the later side extension, the front door opening to a hallway with built-in utility cupboard with plumbing for a washing machine and work top with space for a tumble dryer over (washing machine included), coat hooks and a hatch to the loft space. On the left a door leads to a further inner hallway with a large built-in cloak cupboard and the main accommodation, the passage ahead leading a shower room and the kitchen.

Shower Room

(Approx. 2.55m x 1.2m) (8'6" x 3'10") Recently refurbished with wet-wall lining to the shower enclosure which has a 'Triton' electric shower, plus a new WC and wash hand basin set in fitted units with cupboard below the w.h.b. Vinyl flooring.

Kitchen / Diner

(Approx. 4.3m x 2.95m) (14'1" x 9'9") Attractive space, the exposed vaulted ceiling and the large glazed area looking out over the back garden being particular features. There are fitted units with stainless steel splashbacks to two walls including an inset sink, integral oven & hob with cooker hood over, plus plumbing for a dishwasher and space for a fridge / freezer (appliances not included), although replacement units would perhaps be desirable. Off the kitchen is the dining room.

Dining Room

(Approx. 3.8m x 2.9m) (12'6" x 9'7") With south-facing window looking out over the back garden, feature wallpaper to one wall, laminate flooring & storage heater. Further access from the main hall.

Main Hall

Bedroom 3

(Approx. 4.3m x 2.7m) (14'2" x 8'10") Master bedroom, also south-facing and looking over the back garden, with large wardrobe recess, laminate flooring & storage heater. 

Loft Space

(Approx. 8.35m x 3.05m at widest point (floor area including roof trusses)) (27'6" x 10') A door off the main hall opens to a fixed stair which provides easy access to the substantial lined loft space which spans the full width of the original house and has been recently insulated. It has a floor-to-ceiling height in the centre of approximately 1.8m (6ft) and provides a massive amount of storage or hobby space. Power points & Velux window.


To the front of the house is a small fenced garden area with lawn and path leading to the front door and around the side of the house where there is a large block-built shed (approx. 3.35m x 1.5m (11'0" x 4'10")) and a high gate providing access to the back garden which can also be accessed from the kitchen.

The larger than average back garden is enclosed throughout by a tall fence which along with the mature trees that line the perimeter makes it a particularly private and secluded space. Paved patio area, further wooden garden shed, greenhouse & lawn. A gate provides access to the hill behind.

Public parking is available opposite the house.

Property Location

To reach the property turn into Gremista Brae (up the hill) at the roundabout by Gremista Industrial Estate. Follow the road (later called Ladies Drive) until you come to the first wooden houses on the right (Gremmasgaet). Just after the turning to Gremmasgaet turn left into Norstane and follow the road past the local shop and up and around to the right to a 'T'-junction. Turn left and No.18 is on the 1 is on the right immediately after the parking area on the left.

As noted there is a local shop just down the road from the house although the Co-op supermarket and Toll Clock Shopping Centre are within reasonable walking distance.

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.
