Very spacious two bedroom top floor flat benefiting from central heating provided by the Lerwick District Heating system, situated in a very convenient central Lerwick location within walking distance of amenities including Commercial Street, Mareel cinema / music venue & North Ness business park, the Toll Clock / Co-op, and also the hospital, primary and secondary schooling. There are fine elevated views over Lerwick generally and to the habour area in the distance to the rear.

Forming part of a three storey stone-built building comprising four flats, 18b occupies the whole of the top floor. In addition to two generously proportioned double bedrooms, the double glazed accommodation also includes a good-sized living / dining room, a kitchen plus a modern bathroom which was completely re-fitted last year.

Externally there is a shared back green and exclusive use of a coal cellar / store.


The entrance to the property is to the rear of the building which is accessed via an alley to the side which leads to steps up to the elevated back green and a door to a lobby shared with the first floor flat, each flat having its own inner entrance door, the door to 18b opening to a carpeted lobby with side window with fitted cupboard space below, space for coats and a carpeted stair leading up to the top floor and a hallway with fitted meter cupboard and hatch to the loft space. The living room and bathroom are to the right; to the left is the kitchen and bedroom 1 plus a further passageway with access to storage space in eaves behind bedroom 1, leading to the second bedroom.

A glazed door from the hallway opens to the living room, a good-sized, carpeted room with dormer window enjoying the fantastic elevated view northwards over Lerwick generally over to the harbour area in the distance, plus a further Velux window to the south. The size of the room allows for plenty of space for both living and dining areas.

Next to the living room is the bathroom which was completely re-fitted last year including re-lining and insulation, and the installation of a modern white suite including a shower / bathtub with 'rainfall' shower head, separate handheld fitting and glazed shower screen over. There is also a WC and wash hand basin set on a fitted drawer unit which provides handy storage space and has a mirrored splash back and further shelf storage to one side. Heating is provided by a tall ladder style heated towel rail and wood effect laminate is laid to the floor.

The kitchen which is lit by a north-facing Velux window enjoying the same view as the living room, has ample fitted units in a galley style arrangement providing extensive cupboard & worktop space, the units including an integral double oven and hob with cooker hood over, plus an inset sink and plumbing for a washing machine which is included in the sale along with the fridge / freezer although no warranties will be given. A separate cupboard houses the District Heating unit. Vinyl flooring.

Next to the kitchen is bedroom 1, a substantial, carpeted double room, again like the living room enjoying a dual-aspect with Velux window with integral blind to the south, and dormer window and fine view north and storage recess to the side.

Finally at the end of the passage off the hallway is bedroom two, another good-sized double, this time its south-facing window enjoying an elevated open aspect and view over the rear drying green and beyond. A run of built-in wardrobes / cupboards along one wall provides plenty of clothes space.

All fixed floor coverings, curtains & blinds, and light fittings will be included in the sale along with the white goods. The furniture is available by separate negotiation.

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.

Again thank you for your assistance so far, I couldn’t have asked for better giving the country wide situation so I’m very grateful for works done so far and the speed at which it has happened.
