Rarely available, four bedroom, single storey detached property set in an established garden in a small cul-de-sac in the sought-after Upper Sound residential area of Lerwick, enjoying a south-facing aspect and a fine view over to the Ness of Sound and beyond to Bressay in the distance.

In addition to four bedrooms, three doubles and a single, the well-presented, spacious family accommodation also comprises a bright 20’ living room, similarly sized kitchen / dining room with modern attractively fitted kitchen, a newly re-fitted family bathroom with roll top bath and separate shower, plus an en-suite shower room to the main bedroom. There is also a utility area off the large integral garage which has an electric garage door. Extensive tarred driveway / parking area and a lawned garden to the front with decked seating / barbecue area.

The location of the property means both primary and secondary schooling are within easy reach along with the Clickimin leisure centre and Tesco’s supermarket.

Early viewing recommended.


Entry is from the large tarred parking area along the front of the house where a covered entrance area and front door leads to a lobby with space for coats etc., tile effect ‘Karndean’ flooring, and a glazed inner door to a wider than usual, carpeted hall which enhances the spacious feel to the property, a built-in shelved cupboard on the right providing space for shoes etc., a second airing cupboard housing the ‘Megaflo’ water tank. Hatch to the loft space.

On the right glazed doors lead to the living room and kitchen / dining room, both very generously proportioned rooms, the bright living room which has oak flooring, having windows to the south and east, the south-facing window enjoying a fine view over to the Ness of Sound and beyond to Bressay in the distance, both windows having curtains and blinds. Feature wallpaper to one wall and artificial light provided by two contemporary style light fittings.

The kitchen is a great, very sociable space with stylish fitted units plus a large living / dining area, both areas having windows with wooden slatted blinds, the whole space being unified by the same laminate flooring, ‘stone’ wallpapering to the dining area being an attractive feature. Gloss white units finished with woodblock effect worktops and white ‘metro’ style tiled splash backs, provide ample cupboard & worktop space and include a large breakfast bar, integrated concealed dishwasher, a stainless steel cooker hood with two glazed cabinets to either side, and a wine rack. The range cooker and ‘American’ style fridge / freezer are available by separate negotiation. Recessed ceiling spotlighting supplemented by worktop lighting and low level plinth lighting.

Next to the kitchen is the first of the bedrooms, a rear-facing carpeted single room with built-in wardrobe with sliding mirror doors. Next is the newly refurbished family bathroom comprising a roll-top bath with centre mixer tap, a separate wet wall lined corner shower with glazed screen / door, plus a WC and wash hand basin set in matching fitted units which conceal the cistern, the wash hand basin sitting on a wall-hung drawer unit with mixer tap and mirror / light fitting over. Wood effect vinyl flooring, wooden slatted blind at the window, heated towel rail / radiator & recessed ceiling spotlighting.

The carpeted main bedroom is situated to the rear of the house, extensive clothes space being provided by fitted wardrobe / drawer units, with further storage around the bed area. Centre light fitting and two wall lights, slatted blind at the window. Off this room is an en-suite shower room with wet wall lined corner shower plus a white WC and wash hand basin, again with fitted storage below.

The remaining two bedrooms, both carpeted doubles and each having a built-in wardrobe with sliding mirror doors, are situated to the front of the house enjoying a south-facing aspect and views.

Finally at the end of the hall a door leads to the substantial integral garage which has plenty of space for a car whilst still leaving room for storage / work space / gym etc., the garage having an electric garage door, side window, power & lighting. At the end is a utility area with worktop with sink and plumbing below for a washing machine and tumble dryer (appliances not included), and door to the garden.
