Good-sized, three-bedroom, semi-detached property in convenient very central Lerwick location close to the Clickimin Leisure Centre and Anderson High School, the hospital, and Bells Brae Primary School.

In addition to three double bedrooms, the accommodation also includes a spacious 17' x 12' living room, kitchen, and a modern shower room.

The property benefits from central heating provided by the Lerwick District Heating system which also provides hot water, and a west-facing garden with garden shed and decked seating outside the kitchen.

The property requires repairs and upgrading as noted in the home report which is reflected in the price.


Entry is through the front garden, steps leading down to a path to the front door which opens to a vestibule with cupboard to the side housing the District Heating unit and a glazed inner door to the hall.

To the right is the spacious living room, a bright room thanks to three windows looking out over the front garden. Behind the living room is the kitchen situated to the rear of the house and enjoying a dual aspect with windows to the north and west, the glazed door and window to the west affording a glimpse over to Clickimin Loch between the houses opposite. There are some fitted units including a sink and cooker hood although replacement units would be desirable.

Finally on the ground floor there is a modern shower room with corner 'rainfall' shower plus a white WC and wash hand basin set in fitted units. The floor and lower half of the walls are tiled.

Upstairs the landing, which is lit by a window to the front of the house, leads to three good-sized double bedrooms and what was previously a toilet although the fittings have since been removed but potentially could be reinstalled although prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves in this regard. A hatch with pull-down ladder provides easy access to the floored loft space.

Bedrooms 1 & 2 are situated to the rear of the property facing west. Bedroom 2 has a built-in wardrobe as does bedroom 3 which faces east.

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.

Harper Macleod LLP were excellent in the sale of my house. This was my first house sale and from the beginning of the process to the end they provided brilliant support and guidance. The process was made simple for me and each step was explained fully. They were very efficient and effective with communications.
