Two bedroom, mid-terraced property situated right in the heart of Lerwick's town centre off Mounthooly Street, a short stroll from shops, cafés etc. on Commercial Street, and the small boat harbour.
In addition to two double bedrooms, the accommodation comprises a generously proportioned living room, kitchen / diner and bathroom with electric over-bath shower.
Windows are triple or double glazed and heating is provided by electric storage heaters.
Externally there is a small, easily maintained garden area to the rear.
The property provides a good-sized two bedroom house which would make an ideal first time buy or rental property.
On the Ground Floor:-
The main entrance is to the north side of the house (opposite the Mounthooly Place flats), the front door opening to a hall with a window to the front, wood effect laminate flooring, coat hooks, storage heater and doors to the living room and kitchen. Below the stair to the first floor is handy built-in shelved cupboard, a hatch to the substantial cellar which extends under the whole area of the house, and a meter cupboard.
(Approx. 6.25m x 2.9m extending to 3.35m at widest point) (20'6" x 9'6" / 11') Generously proportioned, carpeted room with windows to the front and rear, storage / convector heater and ceiling mounted spotlight fitting. The fireplace recess with tiled hearth used to house a solid-fuel stove although this was removed however it is thought it should be possible to re-instate this although the chimney should be checked and purchasers should satisfy themselves in this regard.
Kitchen / Diner
(Kitchen - approx. 2.9m x 2.45m) (9'6" x 8'); Dining Area - approx. 2.5m x 2.05m (8'3" x 6'9")) The kitchen, which is situated to the rear of the house with a door to the back garden, is larger than the surrounding properties as this house was extended to provide a dining area overlooking the garden. The fitted units include a small breakfast bar, cooker hood with external vent, inset 1½ bowl sink plus plumbing for a washing machine which is included in the sale. The cooker and fridge / freezer are available by separate negotiation. Laminate flooring matching that in the hall, & storage heater.
On the First Floor:-
The stair leads up to a small landing with wood effect laminate flooring which extends into both bedrooms. A hatch with pull-down ladder provides easy access to extensive storage space in the floored loft which has a Velux roof light.
(Approx. 4.5m x 2.75m) (14'8" x 9') Good-sized master bedroom with wardrobe recess.
(Overall approx. 3.4m x 3.4m at widest points including cupboard) (11'3" x 11') Another good-sized double with built-in shelved airing cupboard housing the hot water tank.

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.
