• 2 double bedrooms • living room • kitchen / diner • shower room • double garage
Two bedroom semi-detached property with a large double garage, situated in a handy central Lerwick location within walking distance of Commercial Street and pleasant walks around The Knab.
Benefitting from central heating provided by the Lerwick District Heating system, the property comprises a living room and kitchen / diner on the ground floor, plus two double bedrooms and a shower room upstairs.
There are garden areas to the front and rear, the front garden including a handy off-street parking space, the back garden including the double garage.
The property would benefit from upgrading which is reflected in the price but nonetheless offers a two bedroom property in this convenient location with the added benefit of District Heating and the double garage.
Entry to the property is via the front door which opens to a small hallway with door to the living room and stair to the first floor. A high level cupboard houses the electric meter & fuse box.
The good-sized living room which faces south with a window looking out over the front garden to the street, leads through to a kitchen / diner to the rear, again a good-sized space, with window looking out over the back garden. There is a run of units along one wall with a sink and plumbing for a washing machine, but although perfectly serviceable, upgrading would be desirable. The size of the room is sufficient to allow space for a small table & chairs, the cooker, fridge / freezer and washing machine will be included in the sale although no warranties will be given. A door from the kitchen leads to a side lobby with under-stairs cupboard housing the District Heating unit, a separate walk-in cupboard / utility area with fitted shelving which provides space for a freezer, tumble dryer etc., and a side entry door.
Upstairs are two double bedrooms, the main bedroom to the front of the house and facing south being particularly spacious and having a walk-in wardrobe. The second bedroom to the rear has a built-in wardrobe. Finally there is a shower room with WC, wash hand basin and shower enclosure fed by the District Heating system, although upgrading is required.
A ceiling hatch with pull-down ladder to the landing provides easy access to the large loft space.
The property is being sold in its current condition and no warranties will be given in respect of any contents or services.

At the end of the back garden is hard standing area which could potentially provide space for a boat, caravan etc., and a large double garage with vehicular access form Hillhead / Annsbrae Place via Ronald Street / Glenfarquhar.
