This space provides a lovely, spacious and sociable family area benefiting from plenty of natural light, the kitchen area having an east-facing window catching the morning sun, the large dining area having west-facing patio doors to a south-west facing seating area and two further high level Velux windows over with electric and rain sensor control.

Finally on the ground floor, the lined garage has a 'Hormann' 'up & over' roller shutter door with electric remote control, a separate rear door and fitted shelving.
The carpeted stair from the hallway which features an oak bannister, leads up to the upstairs accommodation comprising four good-sized double bedrooms, two with an en-suite shower room and dressing area / wardrobe, and a further family shower room. A large open-plan carpeted study / play area features on the landing, which is a bright space lit by a large Velux window over the stairs plus a second Velux facing north, with ample power points being provided for a computer etc. Here there is access to a handy floored cubby hole which allows space for suitcases etc., with more storage available in the large walk-in shelved linen cupboard. Outside the master bedroom, a further built-in cupboard with sliding doors provides additional storage. There is also a floored loft easily accessed from the landing via a ceiling hatch with pull-down ladder. (There is another loft hatch in the dressing room off the master bedroom).

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.
