Overview

Set in the established and sought-after Westerloch area of Lerwick within easy walking distance of both primary and secondary schooling, the Clickimin leisure centre and Tesco's supermarket, 2 Fogralea is a substantial four bedroom detached family home with a double garage plus a self-contained one bedroom flat which provides a healthy rental income.

The house benefits from central heating provided by the Lerwick District Heating system, the spacious double glazed accommodation comprising two large reception rooms, a generously proportioned kitchen / dining room, main en-suite bedroom and a bathroom on the ground floor, plus three further double bedrooms and a shower room upstairs. The garage has twin 'up & over' garage doors, one with electric remote control, and a utility room off.

Externally there are garden areas to the front and rear including a south-facing patio area with access from the family room.

Great family home in a popular location; early viewing essential.

Accommodation

A double glazed lobby with 'v'-lining to a dado rail provides the entrance to the property, a glazed inner door with full-height side light opening onwards to a carpeted hall with useful under-stairs store cupboard with floor-ceiling mirror to the side, separate built-in cloak cupboard and radiator concealed behind a decorative screen. On the right is a good-sized sittingroom with triple glazed window overlooking the front garden plus further window facing west. An electric flame effect fire set on a tiled hearth to the wood lined chimney breast provides a cosy alternative heat source to the oil-fired central heating radiator, extensive fitted shelving and cupboards to either side providing lots of storage and display space. Fitted carpet.

Next to the sittingroom is the generously proportioned kitchen / dining room with extensive fitted units to the west-facing kitchen area including an integral double electric oven, gas hob with concealed cooker hood and decorative tiled panel behind, plus a concealed integrated larder fridge, separate freezer & dishwasher. The units provide plenty of cupboard and worktop space with attractively tiled splash backs and worktop lighting, a breakfast bar separating the kitchen from the dining area which has a glazed sliding pocket door leading through to the adjoining family room and a further dresser style arrangement of fitted units providing additional storage space. Hardwearing lino tiled flooring throughout.

A vaulted ceiling is a feature to the spacious family room which benefits underfloor heating supplied by the District Heating, and plenty of natural light thanks to the large double window facing south, a triple window to the west, French doors to a patio area to the east, and two large electrically operated Velux roof lights, artificial lighting being provided by banks of recessed ceiling spotlights controlled by several dimmer switches. There is also a ceiling fan and wood laminate flooring.

Back off the hall a rear lobby leads to the patio, whilst the modern bathroom has a white suite with contemporary style fittings and striking black tiled splash backs to the bath and wash hand basin, the bath having hand held shower fitment. Mirror light over the w.h.b. included, recessed ceiling spotlighting, a ladder style heated towel rail and electric underfloor heating below the tiled floor. A wall-mounted fitted unit behind the door provides useful space for toiletries etc.

Finally there is a principal bedroom fitted out with extensive bedroom furniture including wardrobe and drawer space, bedside cabinets and a dresser arrangement with large wall mirror over. The spacious en-suite shower room also has fitted units matching those in the bedroom which provide yet more storage space and conceal the plumbing to the WC & bidet, the wash hand basin being inset into a vanity unit with extensive storage all around and large wall mirror and spotlighting over. The wet-wall lined shower enclosure has an electric shower.

The carpeted stair from the hall leads up to a carpeted landing with loft hatch and doors to three carpeted double bedrooms and another shower room, two handy built-in shelved cupboards providing great places to store towels and linens etc. as each has a central heating radiator. Both also have access to the eaves space.

Bedroom 2 is a very generously proportioned double room lit by Velux windows to the north and south both with integral blackout blinds. Extensive fitted units along one wall provide plenty of wardrobe & cupboard space, the dresser style arrangement having a large wall mirror over, the units to the other side having a shelved recess for books etc. Bedroom 3 has a north-facing dormer window enjoying a view over to Clickimin Loch, and again there is extensive fitted wardrobe & cupboard space along one wall, the middle unit having sliding mirror doors. The fourth bedroom, another double, has a gable window facing west, and again there are fitted wardrobe and cupboard units, two shelved recesses providing more space for books etc.

Finally there is a tiled shower room with shower enclosure with glazed screen / door, and white WC, bidet and wash hand basin, the w.h.b. being set in an extensive fitted cupboard unit with plenty of space for toiletries etc. and large wall mirror & light over. Like the downstairs bathroom this room has electric underfloor heating.

Entry to the self-contained flat (2A Fogralea) which is quietly situated over the double garage thus providing rental accommodation with the minimum of disruption to those in the house itself, is accessed via steps to the side of the garage, the flat door opening to a lobby with coat hooks, loft hatch and doors to the shower room, a double bedroom and kitchen / living room, heating being provided by electric panel heaters. The shower room has a white WC and wash hand basin set in a run of fitted units providing lots of cupboard & shelf space for toiletries etc. with mirror and light over, the wet-wall lined shower having an electric shower. Heated towel rail.

The double bedroom also has a Velux window, this time with an integral blackout blind. The flooring is wood laminate and mirrored sliding doors conceal a substantial built-in wardrobe / cupboard along one wall. The living room / kitchen is a bright space with two large Velux windows with integral blinds to the north, plus a second window to the east gable enjoying a view over to the loch. Wood laminate flooring is laid throughout and the kitchen area at one end has fitted units including a peninsula breakfast bar and inset sink. The cooker, fridge / freezer and washing machine will be included in the sale although no warranties will be given. The built-in airing shelved cupboard houses the 'Megaflo' water tank.
