Set in the established Sound residential area of Lerwick, 3 Tarland is an attractive three bedroom / two bathroom, semi-detached property with an attached garage, providing a great family home with several areas of open parkland and ‘Sands of Sound’ beach within easy walking distance as well as Sound Primary School, a local fishmonger and butcher as well as Tesco’s supermarket, a network of footpaths throughout the area and to the school providing safe access for children.

The double glazed accommodation which benefits from central heating provided by the Lerwick District Heating system, comprises a bright living room, attractively fitted kitchen / dining room, utility room and single bedroom with en-suite shower room on the ground floor, plus two double bedrooms and a family bathroom with bath and separate shower upstairs.

The fenced garden provides plenty of outdoor space with several mature trees, and off-street parking for three cars is another bonus. Planning permission had previously been granted for a sun lounge extension and separate log cabin / garden room.


Entry to the property is through a fenced front garden area with several mature trees, a path leading up to the front door and a vestibule lit by a high level window, with coat hooks, laminate flooring and handy walk-into store (approx. 1.75m x 1m (5’9” x 3’3”)) with space for coats etc. and general storage, and also housing the District Heating unit. An glazed inner door then opens to the hall which like the rest of the house is attractively finished with pine doors, skirtings and a dado rail, further storage space being provided by two built-in cupboards under the stairs, the larger one being shelved and having its own radiator thus creating a great airing facility for towels, linens etc.

A glazed door to the left opens to a bright, carpeted living room with triple window to the street, artificial light being provided by a feature centre light fitting and two matching wall lights. Concealed cabling is in place for a surround sound system and satellite TV (with connection to the master bedroom), a shelved recess providing space for equipment (not included).

A second glazed door from the hall opens to the large, west-facing kitchen / dining room which has two windows overlooking the back garden, both windows having wooden venetian blinds, and a door to the utility room. There is plenty of space for a table & chairs and tile effect laminate flooring is laid throughout. The kitchen was attractively re-fitted in 2015 with units in a grey colour set off by woodblock effect worktops and attractively tiled ‘metro’ style splash backs, the units providing plenty of cupboard and worktop space and including an integral double oven (with tall pull-out larder unit to one side), induction hob with stainless steel & glass cooker hood over, concealed integrated dishwasher, plus a 1½ bowl sink. Lighting is provided by two ceiling mounted spotlight fittings supplemented by additional worktop lights.

The utility room which has a door to the back garden, has a built-in shelved cupboard, worktop with space below for washing machine & tumble dryer / freezer etc. (appliances not included) and further wall cabinet over, and vinyl flooring.

Finally on the ground floor, a sliding pocket door from the hall opens to single bedroom to the front of the house which has its own attractively finished en-suite, both spaces being laid with waterproof ‘Quick Step’ laminate flooring, the en-suite comprising an extra wide wet-wall lined shower enclosure with shower supplied by the District Heating system, and glazed shower screen, plus a white WC and wash hand basin set in a fitted cupboard / vanity unit which provides lots of useful storage space and also conceals the cistern, the wash hand basin having a large wall mirror over. Heated towel rail / radiator.

A carpeted stair with pine banister and Velux window with integral blind over, leads up to the carpeted first floor landing, again finished with a dado rail like the hall, pine doors leading to two good-sized double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The main bedroom to the right is a good-sized carpeted room with two west-facing windows with integral black out blinds and a large display shelf below. Two built-in wardrobes provide plenty of hanging space and lighting is provided by recessed ceiling spotlights to each corner of the room. The third bedroom which has laminate flooring, has a south-facing gable window with blackout roller blind, and again ample wardrobe & cupboard space is provided by the two built-in wardrobes along one wall. A hatch provides access to additional floored storage space in the eaves.

Finally the family bathroom comprises a white three piece suite including a corner bath plus a separate shower enclosure with electric shower and glazed screen / door. Like the en-suite the WC and wash hand basin are set in a fitted cupboard / vanity unit along one wall which provides extensive storage space with glazed display cabinets with integral spotlighting to either side of the wash hand basin which has a large wall mirror and spotlight over, and again the units also concealing the toilet cistern. Recessed ceiling spotlighting, shaver point, wood effect vinyl flooring & Velux window with integral blind

The size if the sites suggests that extending the property should be possible and indeed planning permission (Reference: 2011/199) was previously granted for the erection of a large sun lounge extension off the kitchen / dining room, the permission also including a separate log cabin / garden room and vehicular access to the back garden. This permission has lapsed but does indicate the possibility of extension although prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves in this regard by contacting the local planning department directly.
