Unique opportunity to acquire a three bedroom maisonette set in a fantastic waterfront location overlooking the small boat harbour and Victoria Pier right in the heart of the centre of Lerwick, and enjoying fabulous uninterrupted views over Bressay Sound, a great location from which to view the hustle and bustle of the harbour and shipping arriving and departing the port.

The property forms the upper two floors of a 2½ storey stone building abutting the Queens Hotel, a separate studio flat occupying the floor below. The accommodation which has its own main door access, comprises a spacious, triple aspect living / dining area, kitchen and shower room on the lower floor, plus three bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs.

The property would benefit from upgrading which is reflected in the price but nonetheless offers a fantastic opportunity to acquire a property in this prime location. If not used on a permanent basis it would particularly make an ideal holiday property given the location and close proximity to amenities.

The sale will include all fixtures, fittings and furniture within the property.

The property is situated in the Lerwick Conservation Area and it is thought to be listed (Grade B) but prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves in this regard.


Access to the property via a short flight of stairs between the RNLI building and the Queens Hotel, the stairs leading to a front door and a lobby with glazed door ahead to the ground floor accommodation and wide staircase to the right to the first floor.

The inner door from the lobby opens to a carpeted entrance area which leads through into the main living space which is of a good size sufficient to provide both living and dining areas, doors to the left leading to a shower room with corner shower enclosure with electric shower plus a white WC and wash hand basin, and the west-facing kitchen, its window looking out over to the small boat harbour and Victoria Pier, the fitted units including a sink and plumbing for a washing machine which will be included in the sale along with the cooker and fridge / freezer although no warranties will be given for the appliances of any other contents. Vinyl flooring & storage heater.

The living / dining area is a bright space thanks to windows to three sides enjoying views over the small boat harbour and across the Sound to Bressay, the sea being just below the two windows to the east. A built-in cupboard provides useful storage space and also houses the electric meter.

Back off the lobby, the stairs to the first floor lead up to a landing with hatch to the loft space and doors to three carpeted double bedrooms and a bathroom comprising a white three piece suite, the sink having built-in cupboard space below and a mirror & light over. Vinyl flooring and heated towel rail.

All the bedrooms are carpeted and have a wash hand basin and storage heater. Bedroom 1 which is lit by a Velux window has a built-in wardrobe. Bedrooms 2 & 3 both enjoy the fine view across to Bressay, bedroom 2 has a built-in cupboard.

Windows are double glazed and heating is provided by electric storage heaters.

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.

We were very impressed with your professional manner and always keeping us up to date with progress.
