Benefiting from a southerly aspect, 31 Harbour Street is an attractive, two bedroom / two reception room corner terraced property on the corner of Harbour Street and St Magnus Street, a great, very central Lerwick location within walking distance of amenities including shops, cafes etc. on Commercial Street as well as Mareel cinema / music venue, the museum and business park at North Ness.

This fully double glazed, mainly stone-built property which has had all the external walls re-lined and insulated, comprises two well-proportioned reception rooms, a kitchen (all appliances included), box room and WC on the ground floor, plus two large double bedrooms and a shower room upstairs. Heating is provided by electric storage / panel heaters. Externally there is a small front garden area plus two outbuildings and a shared yard to the rear.

The sale will include all carpets and other fitted floor coverings, blinds and light fittings.

The property would suit a first time buyer, ‘buy-to-let’ investor, or anyone looking for a conveniently situated Lerwick base.


The front door to the property opens to a carpeted hallway with doors either side to two well-proportioned reception rooms and a short passage with coat hooks to the rear leading to a handy separate toilet with combined WC & wash hand basin.

The carpeted living room to the right enjoys a dual aspect with windows to Harbour Street and St Magnus Street, a shelved recess providing space for books etc. The second reception room on the left, again a good size and carpeted, is used as a dining room. The room has a window to Harbour Street and doors at the rear to the kitchen and a handy box room which provides useful storage space and also includes a larder fridge and freezer which will both be included in the sale, as well as providing further space for coats, general storage.

The kitchen has two double glazed windows and a back door to the shared rear yard. Fitted units include an integral oven and hob with concealed cooker hood over plus a sink and plumbing for a washing machine also included in the sale. A matching cupboard houses the hot water tank and there is a handy fold-up table. Tile effect vinyl flooring.

Back in the front hallway, the carpeted stair which retains its original bannister, leads up to a galleried landing with plenty of natural light provided by a south-facing window. From here doors lead to two large double bedrooms, both carpeted and a shower room. The main bedroom to the left again enjoys a dual aspect and has a shelved recess for books. The other bedroom faces south and has a shelved cupboard.

Finally the shower room was completely refurbished by the present owners following their purchase five years ago and is attractively finished with tiling to the walls and floor, and a large wall mirror. The shower has a 'rainfall' shower head and separate hand held fitting, and there is a white WC and wash hand basin with mirror / glass shelf over. Heating is provided by a ladder style heated towel rail.
