Spacious, four bedroom, detached house with an integral double garage, set in an established garden in an elevated position at the back of the Hogalee development, enjoying a sunny westerly aspect and fine views across East Voe to Scalloway and its historic castle. A range of amenities in the village including the school, swimming pool and local shops are within reasonable walking distance, although Lerwick is only six miles away.
Built in 2007 the property offers particularly bright and spacious, split-level accommodation arranged over three floors, plus a double garage and substantial, very useable store / hobby space on the lower ground floor. Central heating is provided by an oil-fired boiler supplying underfloor heating to the ground and mezzanine floors, and radiators to the first floor.
Particular features include a large, dual-aspect living room with twin west-facing patio doors opening to a balcony enjoying the views, a 16' x 14' kitchen / diner, and generously proportioned main bedroom with en-suite.
Great family home – viewing essential.
19 Hogalee forms part of a modern, private housing development at East Voe on the edge of Scalloway which was completed in 2006 / 7. The house is set in an elevated position at the back of the development and thus enjoys a sunny westerly aspect and fine views over the marina and the head of East Voe across to Scalloway and its historic castle.
The village of Scalloway, originally the ancient capital of Shetland, which is within walking distance, has a wide range of amenities including a school, swimming pool, several local shops including a chemist & post office, doctor’s surgery, youth centre, hotel & garage. There is also a museum close by the castle, whilst around the harbour at Port Arthur is a boating club, another marina, and the marine centre of the Shetland campus of the University of the Highlands & Islands. Close by the house at Blydoit is a children's play park, vets surgery and fish shop. Planning permission was recently granted for a Co-op mini-supermarket at East Voe.

The property is of 'Scandanavian' style timber frame / timber clad construction below a concrete tiled roof. Windows are 'NorDan' double glazed units and central heating is provided by an oil-fired boiler situated in the cloakroom / WC which supplies underfloor heating to the ground and mezzanine floors, and radiators to the first floor.
Entry to the property is via a covered entrance area with front door opening to a lobby laid with a tiled floor, glazed double doors from here opening to a hallway with paneled doors to the kitchen, a large cloakroom / WC with white WC and wash hand basin, tiled floor and back door, and a built-in cupboard housing the 'Megaflo' hot water tank. A carpeted stair leads up to the mezzanine floor, and down to the lower ground floor. Wood laminate flooring.
The kitchen is a very spacious room with extensive fitted units providing a huge amount of cupboard and worktop space, the units being set off by woodblock effect worktops and including an integral electric oven and gas hob with a concealed cooker hood over, space for a dishwasher, washing machine & tumble dryer etc (appliances not included), inset 1½ bowl sink plus a couple of glazed display cabinets with integral lighting. A built-in cupboard provides additional storage space and there is plenty of room for a table & chairs although glazed double doors lead from the kitchen to a separate dining room or family room enjoying a west-facing aspect with sliding patio doors to the garden, lighting being provided by recessed ceiling spotlights and a centre light. The same wood laminate flooring is laid to the kitchen and dining room unifying both spaces.
Moving on up to the mezzanine floor, two built-in cupboards on the landing provide useful storage, and a glazed door to the left opens to the carpeted living room, an exceptionally bright space with a pair of sliding patio doors opening to a west-facing balcony with a glass balustrade which provides great elevated views over the voe and to the castle, further natural light being provided by twin Velux windows over, each with integral blackout blinds, and a further double window facing north. A fireplace surround with electric flame effect fire provides an attractive focal point although the room has underfloor central heating. Recessed ceiling spotlighting.
On the other side of the landing is the main bedroom, again a very generously proportioned, carpeted room, also enjoying a dual aspect, this time with windows to the north and east. The wardrobes will remain. Off this room is a large en-suite with wet-wall lined shower plus a wash hand basin / vanity unit with fitted cupboard space below and mirror with integral lighting over.
The large landing on the first floor has fitted bookshelves, a built-in cupboard, and hatch with pull-down ladder providing easy access to the loft space. Off the landing are three carpeted bedrooms, two doubles and a single, bedroom 2 being a very spacious double room with windows to the south enjoying views over to the harbour, and west. Bedroom 3, a single, and bedroom 4, another double, are both south-facing again enjoying the great view. Finally there is a family bathroom with white three piece suite plus a separate wet-wall lined corner shower. Large mirror over the wash hand basin and Velux window with integral blind.
Back off the main hall, the stair down leads to a door to a passage leading to a substantial store room which provides a massive amount of storage / hobby space, and the double garage. The store room has a hot and cold water supply and a drainage and could therefore potentially provide a further utility area. The garage has an 'up & over' double roller shutter garage door with electric remote control, power & lighting, and cold water tap.
