General Information

Dalsetter Wynd is situated on the east side of the wider Dunrossness area of the South Mainland of Shetland, approximately 22 miles from Lerwick.

The estate is situated close to the main amenities in the area which are grouped together on the main Lerwick - Sumburgh Road at Dunrossness just over a mile from the house, these including a mini-supermarket with post office & fuel, and the area’s primary school. Secondary schooling is at Sandwick or Lerwick to the north. The airport at Sumburgh is also within easy reach for air travel to mainland Scotland.

The house is fully double glazed and benefits from oil-fired central heating supplied by a ‘Worcester’ oil-fired boiler housed in the kitchen, the radiators having individual thermostats for increased comfort and efficiency. The smoke / heat and carbon monoxide detectors have been newly upgraded to fully comply with forthcoming Scottish regulations.

The property was completely re-wired in 2013 and substantially re-plumbed in 2018.

At the end of the hall is the family bathroom which was re-fitted three years ago, the work involving re-lining and insulating, the bathroom comprising a modern white three piece suite plus a separate wet wall-lined walk-in shower with ‘rainfall’ shower head, separate handheld fitting, and a glazed screen / door.

Important Information for Prospective Purchasers

This schedule is intended only to help you decide whether to view the property. We always recommend you view the property personally.

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.
