• 2 double bedrooms • living room • kitchen / dining room • bathroom & separate toilet


Good-sized, two bedroom semi-detached property set in a neatly kept garden area at the north end of Lerwick, enjoying a fine view over to the north harbour area and across to Bressay.

Built in the late 1990's this immaculately presented property is fully double glazed and has electric storage / panel heating.

In addition to two 2 double bedrooms, the accommodation also includes a bright living room leading through to a kitchen / dining room, a bathroom with electric over-bath shower, and a separate toilet.

A particular feature of the property is the amount of built-in storage provided with built-in cupboards to the hall and landing, and also to each bedroom. Garden areas to the front and rear.

The white goods and all the furniture are available by separate negotiation which would be of interest to first time buyers or potential landlords.

Early viewing recommended.

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.
