This well-presented property which was built in 2007, is set in a small cul-de-sac in the centre of the village of Sandwick in the middle of the South Mainland of Shetland approximately 13 miles of Lerwick to the north and 13 miles from Sumburgh and the airport to the south, both being within easy reach by car or bus as Lerwick / Sumburgh bus services run through the village stopping close to the house.
Sandwick enjoys an excellent range of amenities, most within reasonable walking distance of the house, and including the Junior High School, a public swimming pool, shop & post office plus a youth & community centre, social club & garage. There is also a public play park close by the house at Central. Sandsayre pier at Lebitton is the departure point for boat trips to the island of Mousa and its broch, whilst slightly further afield at Hoswick is a visitor’s centre / tea room. Planning permission has recently been granted for a Co-op mini-supermarket.
The property is of ‘Scandinavian’ style timber frame / timber clad construction below a concrete tiled roof. It benefits from ‘NorDan’ double glazed windows (Velux windows with integral blinds upstairs) and central heating provided by space saving ‘Heatrae Sadia Amptec’ electric boiler housed in a cupboard off the vestibule which also houses the ‘Megaflo’ water tank.
The house is decorated in light neutral colours throughout which enhances the light and airy feel to the interior. All carpets and other fixed floor coverings, curtains & blinds, and light fittings are included in the sale.
Entry to the property is via a vestibule where a large built-in cloak cupboard provides plenty of space for coats, shoes etc. and also houses the central heating controls and hot water tank, the vestibule floor being laid with laminate flooring. A glazed door then opens into the hall, again with laminate flooring, further built-in storage being provided by a large cupboard with fitted shelving to one side and space for a hoover etc. to the other, plus another cupboard space under the carpeted stairs to the first floor. On the right is a handy ground floor toilet with white WC and wash hand basin; on the left further glazed doors lead to the living room and kitchen.
The generous living room is a fine, bright space with plenty of room for both living and dining areas, the room having large windows to the living area to the front and the dining area to the rear, and having laminate flooring throughout, artificial light being provided by two centre light fittings. A further glazed door off the dining area leads through to the kitchen which can also be accessed via a second door, also glazed, from the hall.
The galley style kitchen is attractively fitted with ‘Shaker’ style units featuring ‘soft-close’ doors & drawers in an easy clean ‘gloss’ stone finish complete with walnut wood block effect worktops and wrap-around side panels, the units providing plenty of cupboard and worktop space and including a range of integral appliances including a touch control ceramic hob with matching wood block effect splash back and stainless steel & glass cooker hood over, an oven and separate microwave, plus a concealed integrated larder fridge and dishwasher. There is also a 1½ bowl sink. The south-facing window looks out over the back garden and another door leads through to the adjoining utility room, both the kitchen and utility room having the same light stone effect laminate flooring.
The utility room is finished to the same high standard as the kitchen, with further floor and wall units providing yet more storage space, with plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble dryer, freezer, etc. (appliances not included). Rear window and double glazed side door. Off the utility room is a lined integral garage with ‘up & over’ garage door with electric remote control, double glazed side door, power & lighting.
