Substantial, four bedroom detached house with a large integral tandem double garage and 8m long store room on the lower floor, situated in a great, very central, Lerwick location off Church Road, just a short stroll from shops, cafes etc. on Commercial Street and the small boat harbour area.
Set in a mature garden with off-street parking space, the property comprises a large, particularly bright living room which leads through to a dining area and the kitchen, three double bedrooms, a bathroom and separate toilet on the main ground floor, plus a second kitchen, fourth double bedroom or further living room, and another toilet on the lower ground floor. Warm air central heating is provided throughout the house supplied by an oil-fired heat exchanger. Externally there is a small garden area to the front of the house and a particularly private lawn to the rear.
The property would benefit from some updating but nonetheless provides very spacious family accommodation with lots of potential in this convenient, central location.
Entry is via a glazed door to the side of the house which opens to a large vestibule with a tiled floor and further glazed inner door with glazed panels either side opening to the very spacious hall, a light and airy space thanks to borrowed light filtering through the glazed doors to the living room and kitchen, and also a large skylight and window to the stairs to the rear. A handy built-in cupboard provides space for coats etc. and there is a hatch to the loft space.
The living room is a very spacious and particularly bright room which extends around into the adjoining area off the kitchen, both the living and dining areas having wide windows to the front of the house, the living area having a further large window to the side. The tiled fireplace houses an electric flame effect fire although there is also a storage / convector heater in addition to the warm air central heating. Lighting is provided by ceiling and wall-mounted fittings plus a ‘rise & fall’ fitting over the dining area.
The dining area leads to the kitchen area, the two spaces being separated by a peninsula unit with high level glazed cabinet over. A range of fitted units in the kitchen provide extensive cupboard and worktop space, the units including an integral oven and microwave plus a hob with cooker hood canopy over and a concealed fridge, freezer & dishwasher. Also inset 1½ bowl sink, corner carousels and glazed cabinets with integral lighting. Again the kitchen has plenty of natural light with a large window to the east side of the house.
A glazed door from the kitchen leads back to the hall where there are further doors to a bathroom, separate toilet and three double bedrooms. The family bathroom which is tiled to dado height comprises a corner Jacuzzi bath, separate shower, WC, bidet and sink set in a cupboard / vanity unit with large wall mirror and lighting over. The separate toilet is similarly tiled to a dado height and has a WC & wash hand basin with bathroom cabinet over. Both the bathroom & toilet have a tiled floor and heated towel rail.
All three bedrooms are good-sized doubles, bedrooms 1 & 2 looking out over the back garden, bedroom 3 having a window to the side of the house. All the fitted wardrobes will remain.
At the end of the hall a stair lit by a feature light fitting leads down to the accommodation on the lower ground floor where a hallway with handy under-stairs store cupboard leads to a second kitchen, a fourth double bedroom and the large store room.
The kitchen, again a good-size, has space for a table & chairs and ample fitted units including an inset 1½ bowl sink and concealed integrated freezer. The floor is tiled. The bedroom could be used as additional living space or office, and again the wardrobe units are included. Finally there is a substantial store room with extensive fitted units to two walls providing masses of storage, the room having a side window, lots of power points and storage heating. At the far end is a boiler room which houses the warm air heat exchanger unit and provides access to the oil tank (there is an external connection for filling the tank), whilst two doors to the right open to the substantial integral garage with ‘up & over’ electric garage door, a separate side door & window, the floor being tiled throughout. The hot water tank is situated here and there is plumbing for a washing machine. Off the garage is a second toilet with WC & wash hand basin.
The layout of the lower ground floor accommodation offers possible potential for a variety of uses, perhaps as accommodation for a dependent relative, home office space, or simply as additional living space to the main house as is the case at present. As the toilet off the garage is right next to the kitchen, a self-contained flat might also be possible subject to necessary consents required.

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.
